Every really strong team needs 2-3 high scoring D, I stand by this, I've seen it, and I've seen how it wins a hell of a lot of games that would have been lost without them.
I haven't watched the game in its entirety but judging from the highlights we both got our wishes last night.

I get the impression that what you would like to see is the Habs d-men scoring goals and of course Subban scored on the powerplay. What I really liked about that was the willingness of Markov to switch sides. If Subban and Markov can switch back and forth during the same powerplay then it easily could be become lethal again. I'm looking forward to it.

I got my wish when Hamrlik made one of those subtle plays that I think the d-men have been making. He intercepted a pass and fed it quickly to the forwards and Gomez actually finishes. Hamrlik helped by joining the rush and giving the Bruins' D another player to worry about.

Way to go D!!!! Having Markov on one pair, Subban on another and Spacek and Hamrlik on another can make this team dangerous if the forwards finish more than they have been.

Nice try but not going to work. I'm sick of hearing how the problem is always our defensemen. Put the focus for offense back where it belongs on the high-priced forwards. The defence is doing fine thanks.
