Auld played great. A real solid game for him. Glad JM played him.

Overall, we recovered well after a tough first period.
He played with Halpern and Moen in the third.. and was quite effective with them.

Watch the third period again and tell me how many shift AK had to play in the defensive zone. You'd be surprised. He was the one doing the forechecking and most intense on that line. The first two he was invisible but I had nothing negative about his play in the third.

When JM's system works , as tonight (or in last year's playoffs) it's very impressive. Boring, but impressive. Imagine what the Habs might do with a.) a healthy Markov and b.) an engaged Cammy.

I absolutely hate that the team is so offensively inept that they can't risk playing rookies an have to rely on the offensive prowess of Moen and Halpern.

We can't score in the crease or empty nets but from weird angles goals go in Habs are trolling the NHL. Martin should tell the goalies to shoot the puck at the other net they might just score a fluke goal.

another snoozer

at least were winning them i guess.

we cant gain the center of the ice, its been the past 10 games or so, its frustrating to watch all the outside play.
38 shots, and maybe 5 were quality.

Its better to be lucky than good at times. We were lucky tonight. Our first goal was very lucky. Poolie's goal was lucky. The Rangers also hit at least two pipes but we will take the win.

Poolie, Darche, Gio, Gomez, Pac, Spacek, PK and Auld all looked good.

I like it, but instead i'd put AK on that 3rd line and send Eller down.

I know I shouldn't ask that () but anyone has the video where PK apparently slewfoot'd Dubinsky? I'd like to see that.

According to Rangers fan, that was dirty as ****...

Who would have thought that Spacek can play pretty good hockey in his good side....

Also good on Benny produce be on a 40 pts pace with almost no PP time and limited Ice time and playing mostly on the third line with third liners. Very Impressive, that what was expected from Latendresse and he was never able to do it.

Great games by Auld and Spacek!

Spacek on LD >>>> Spacek on RD

I like that Martin played huge minutes with these players:
Plekanec 23:07
Pacioretty 21:53 (Must be highest ever for him?)
Gionta 21:02
Pouliot 16:57

Btw, Spacek 16:30 might be a reason why he played so good.

Textbook road game from the Habs and a hard fought 2 points tonight but what the hell is up with the lack of offense every night? Are the Habs players really that bad offensively or is the lack of offense due to the system they are playing? I'd like to see a 5 goal game once and a while..

True. For the first part of the game it looked like a rerun of the Bruin game. No quality shots from the slot. Both of our goals were extremely lucky. Most of our shots were harmless.

If Pouls was faster and better balanced he could be a regular 60-80 pt guy. He has the hands/vision.

Weber won the game, if Picard is in the lineup Spacek would be on the left side and couldn't clear that puck in the crease. Weber makes mistakes but so does Picard.
With Picard in the game Spacek moves to the left and we suddenly have two struggling D. Better to stick with Weber and let him learn.

He has very good speed he need perhaps to be a little bit more explosive on his skate and I agree about the balance, he is probably the guy with this kind of bad balance the most productive in the NHL right now.

Why is this team so boring to watch though? It's like pissing kidney stones watching them.

I wonder how bad defensively Cammalleri - Desharnais - Kostitsyn would be? lol

I like Pleks with two big wingers. They helped him. Cammy and Kostitsyn wear Pleks down because he has to do everything.

JM doesn't seem to have confidence in Eller right now. Habs should send the kid down. This situation is reminding me of Patches last year. No point to it.

Moen - Halpern - Pyatt is a good 4th line, but if the Habs send down Eller I hope they call up White. He could sub on the 4th with Pyatt. I'd like to see what he could bring to the line-up, even though I know he's having a bit of a tough year in Hamilton.

I agree. He played a strong third. Moen and Halpern could be a good place for him and give them an offensive threat not to mention good size and speed. AK isn't a #1 line guy. He doesn't match-up well against the top defensive players in the league. He could still be a good depth offensive guy.

I think he's on his way out of Montreal though.

In the summer with some weight training and another five pounds will do him some good. He is still young and may be finally showing his skills.

Auld played really well. If it wasn't for him it could have been another "L".

Loved what they did on D. Subban/Gill got most of the really important defensive minutes and played great. Definitely a solid shutdown duo. Gill even started looking a bit like Subban on one of his exits from the Habs zone.

Hamr/Wiz is a bit more offensive but solid enough defensively to log 20 minutes as well. Spacek/Weber at 16 minutes is just about right.

I really hope we aren't seeing Picard in the near future, because these pairings make alot more sense.
