EDIT: Alright, just saw the video, it should have been a penalty.

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.
White has had a hard time adjusting back to the speed of the AHL.. I'd give him another few weeks before making a call. He looked better in the last game I saw, but just to be safe.

I wouldn't mind Eller going down though if we're only going to play him 4 minutes per game.

Desharnais is strong enough defensively to keep that line alright I think. He's obviously no Plekanec, but if we ice 3 lines like that, teams are going to have a hard time deciding who to shut down. A sniper like Cammalleri and Kostitsyn or the Plekanec line. It could definitely work.

lol on L'Antichambre its the daily AK bash again and Gaston Therrien showed a play that supposed to show how lazy AK is.

He show play that it was a 3 on 2 for the Rangers with AK being the first offense backchecking. Therrien said that AK stop skating and let the third Rangers get a scoring chance but on the video, it clearly shows that AK was backcheking hard, he was the first forward to come back in the defensive zone, the deepest and the last one leaving the defensive zone.

Blame the guy for his lack of vision in the defensive zone, but on that particular play, there's no way he was being lazy.

Hopefully we can put a little streak together and move up the standings.

JM Notes to self...

- Spacek back on right next game (How dare he make me look foolish).
- Pouliot down on third line (Look above).
- Less practice in close to the net, maybe we can somehow set up and shoot from neutral zone. (Copyright JACQUES!)
- Shove Muller for mocking my round head.

My god, that interview with JM was so hilarious. He started each and every answers by "c'est sûr,...". It almost felt like the reporters were trying to pull out the most "c'est sûr" from him.

Sure, a half dozen hooking penalties, a half dozen tripping penalties in his 38 games and soon you have a trend. Poor Jacques to have to put up with it.

I think they kind of had a point there because I clearly saw Andrei hesitate before putting the afterburners to catch the third man, be it because he wasn't sure who he was suppose to cover or out of simple lazyness.

However, I agree that Andrei played well for the most part during that game on the defensive side being more dynamic on his forecheck and coming down lower to help his defensemen. You could clearly see the improvements he's made in his defensive game tonight.

All he needs to do now is get his confidence back in the offensive zone and be the sniper and dominant forward we all know he can be.

Eller has to be sent down. Get him some first line minutes and see how he does next year.

Pouliot to me has played his way on the line with Pleks and Cammalleri, AK has played his way off.

Eller needs to play, it isn't in Montreal so let it happen in Hamilton like Patches did.

Picard out of the line up, I felt way more relaxed and liked it.

Auld, nice game and glad to see the boys get the all important win.

Who doesn't know AK is not the best defensive player out there but on that play, i think AK and Plekanec left the offensive zone almost at the same time but AK was the first one back in the defensive zone. Rangers took a shot and AK was actually behind our D and was the last forward to quit the defensive zone... So how the hell can Therrien call him lazy when he's the first one back and last one to leave.. he must have skate hard at some point to come back first no?

One of my favourite plays of the game was when Subban was caught pinching in the third and Gionta was back on D covering for him... and Gionta played it EXACTLY like Subban would have, lining up and trying to lunge into the forward. I thought it was funny anyway. I'm sure the guys will have a laugh about that one.

If RDS wants to bash AKost, then let them. It's not like AKost is doing much to be worthy of defense, given his appalling lack of offense over the past month or so.

This game had very little in common with the playoff games the Habs won. The Habs won the possession battle, outshot, outchanced, and outplayed the Rangers, totally unlike the playoffs. I don't know if Martin's new style is exciting, probably less so than last year's, but that's how you win hockey games on a regular basis.

Yeah, obviously he did, but he relented a little bit approching the blue line and if he'd kept skating full speed, I think he could've caught up to the third and prevented the shot altogether. Anyways, that's about the only "brainfart" he might've add on the defensive side of things the whole game IMO. All I can say is that the Akost I saw tonight is a far cry from the one who used to be a spectator in the defensive zone going through the motion without any heart to it that we all saw undo Carbo.

Subban REALLY likes to be a target I see...The slew foot stuff is a bit much.

I didn't find the game that boring due to the importance of getting those 2 points, it was close to feeling like a playoff game to me, ugly, grimey win.

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.
We must hold a record in the NHL for fluke goals that win us games.

Gaston Therrien showed that play to make Andrei looks bad and i think thats very hypocrite.

If there's a camera on every player, it will show that every single player doesn't give their 100% in every single back check. I've seen Gomez done that several time, I've seen Cammy not backchecking hard enough that lead to a scoring chances.

Even Plekanec on that play didn't give his all his energy to backcheck.

Showing one play to bash a guy on his entire game is just stupid. Like I said earlier, AK was forecheking hard and playing with intensity in the third period and kept the play away from the defensive zone almost every of his shifts in the third but of course they won't show that, they want to bash him.
