I feel bad for Hamrlik. He cant play 60 mins a game but he's going to have to start.

When Benoit said:''je serais pas surpris Pierre que le Canadien crée l'égalité avec tous ces dégagements refusés de la part de l'Avalanche'' I knew it was toast.

Gomez was very predictable in his moves when he entered the zone, putting the brakes 2-3 feets after the blue line and passing across the zone to whoever might be there.

Plus I think the guys need to shoot more, from anywhere.

Was a fun game to watch, Colorado may be my new team to follow.

Habs need to figure out the D, and need to get Eller-Pouliot back together.




And stop playing Lapierre every 2nd shift.

All three Avs goals weren't the result of that.

You guys battled hard. We were barely survived. Was a really good game except for the 1st.

Good luck on the recent of the roadtrip, I'll be watching. Go Habs Go!

The Avs without those players are still a better team than the Canadiens. I wouldn't have tried to argue otherwise. There's a reason why they've won 6 straight even with a bunch of regulars out of the lineup. Anybody who thought tonight should have been a walk in the park because the Avs had injuries should give their head a shake.

Not too bad a game by the Habs, until the second goal. After that it was a pretty lifeless effort.

2 frustrating thing in this game.

The amount of open nets we missed. And Brunet's mangasm on Darche in the last 5-7 min of the game. Sooooooo annoying.

They were without Hejduk and Stewart in regards to top players, we are without Markov...so I think we both have some significant injures to top players.

In regards to us being a middle of the pack team, I think we are in the top contending teams out there. The West trip will be a strong indicator of where we are cause the West is so strong with only 2 teams under .500 in their conference.

Better forechecking won this game and the Avs are a much more aggressive team. Though the 3rd goal was a good bounce for us off a bad rebound by Price.

Ultimately, you're not wrong... not by a long shot. They also highlighted the Avs forecheck in action during the Ottawa game last night. Sacco really has those guys doing all the right things this year.

Spacek Weber time for Spacek back to left side.

But Eller getting the least amount of ice time, less then Moen, Lapierre, etc. is just wrong. Kid played another great game, created some chances with the plugs he had on his line... I thought Eller-Pouliot-Darche on line 3 was perfect, gives us a 3rd scoring line. Why was that line changed?

I don't recall the last time the Habs managed to burry one in during a scramble around the net. They never seem to get the rebounds.

Glad I'm not the only one.

I was really getting mad at the end, how Darche is this and that and screen the goalie like a pro and how its not his fault if he miss the open net. If it was his whipping boy Kostitsyn he would have said what a missed chance.

I'm really sick of RDS. Can't wait til the Habs game are back on Radio Can or whatever. Can't stand their staff anymore.

Habs have 12 wins against teams that are currently out of a playoff position and 7 wins against teams that are in a playoff position. The team has two road wins against teams that a currently sitting in a playoff position.

We really need to show something on this road trip.

Just got done watching the game. I thought they played well and dominated the 3rd period. Like was said earlier, you just didn't get any lucky bounces and no one could finish it near the net. It happens, but i wouldn't be worried. You should worry if they never showed up in the first place.

Seriously, I don't get why the kid gets benched everytime we are trailing even if he's having a great game. Ok, he can bench AK because he had a bad game but why Eller? He's intense and good around the boards but because we are trailing, he sits for the last 10-12 min of the game.

I don't think it was an horrible game.

Like I said earlier, Habs simply couldn't capitalize on their chances especially in the 3rd period.

I was wondering what was happening between Darche and Anderson at the end of the game there. Anderson got a slashing penalty at 20:00 so I guess he took a shot at Darche as the game wound down.

Just the fact that Darche is out there at that critical moment says everything about the Habs. I love Darche. He works hard and is a good 3rd to 4th liner. He gives us size on the wings and always drives to the net.

But, when he's your best option in front late in the game...

AK no where in sight of course, or Pouliot, or Patches.

I would not be opposed at the Habs putting Weber in the line up over Picard. We need to see something different back there, and if that doesn't work it would be time to look at adding a top 4 guy that can play with Subban like a Bieksa or Regher.
