Outscored 13-3 in the last 2 days, you'd think they'd have fired the coach by now.

Apparently Melnyk told Murray if he wants to can Clouston, then he can get out too (Murray is rumoured to have already tried to fire Clouston). This was denied, but there is no way they'd confirm these claims, on the other hand.

The Senators are gawd awful but we needed the 2 pts. Glad to get a blow-out. Always fun and relaxing.

Kids played great tonight. I liked Enqvist and White.

Ak-Pleks-Eller were awesome. Both Pleks and AK were +3.

JM rolled 4 lines, and 6 D-man. Gill played the least on D and he still played 17:14.

A good thing since the game against Anaheim will be much, much tougher.

I think JM stays with this line-up against the Ducks.

And they've now scored two or less goals in 23 of their last 34 games. Yikes.

I wished that last two on one would of scored I think it was DD and Darche, Price bounced it off the glass to get those two guys going. If they could of scored Price would of had an assist.

I wouldn't mind Zack Smith, that's for sure. He's pretty much like White.

Murray should just resign. He bullied his way into the gm's job and tore apart a franchise that was so close to being over the top.

Yah same. Anyway, was a good game by him. He'll get going eventually.

Yet it's only been three years since they were in the Cup Final.

Agreed. Murray's ascent to the GM job was anything but kosher. He should have kept coaching, was pretty good at it. Now look what he's done.

The blame doesn't solely fall on him though, upper management gave Murray the keys to the city with open arms.

It looked too easy tonight. Great win but Saturday night against a badly beaten team (vs TO) will not be easy. Koivu will be great and so will his team. GO HABS GO!!!

Montreal managed to outshoot Ottawa.

When a team is behind, they shoot more (but score less often on their shots). When a team is ahead, they shoot less (but score more often).

If you spend most of a game behind by three goals plus and lose 7-1 and STILL can't outshoot the other team...

Sad.

There is no other team I enjoy seeing blown out more than Ottawa. When it's us doing it to them - makes the experience that much more enjoyable!

Finally a game that didn't come down to the final minutes with the Habs hanging on for dear life.. The Sens are a real mess right now with some big changes coming really soon one would suspect..

Absolutely loved the game. Extremely entertaining, and the Habs were awesome!

Lots of great positives here:

1. Pleks' frequent breakaways via pure speed is becoming a trademark for him. Sadly, so was his tendency to not score on them. Nice to see him cash it in this time!

2. Good night for the kids: Desharnais made some superb passing plays out there, and he did get an assist on the night. Subban showing that he's developing an outstanding point shot.

3. All the key guys stepped up. Pleks, AKost, Gionta, Gomez, Pouliot, Patches... all the guys who we need to step up with Cammy out did step up.

4. Pouliot continuing to show promise.

5. Wiz continuing to work magic.

6. We didn't let up in the third - clearly the team responded well to the game against the Flames where we had a similar large lead.

7. Easy to not notice it with this offensive explosion, but Price had a great game himself.

All-told, an almost perfect game for the Habs!


Still, you have to feel a bit sorry for the Sens and their fans. That team definitely needs to clean house, and start a rebuild.

How does anyone go about replacing that in one or two years? Gotta hit free agency but that's a crap shoot. In this day and age you have to save money on young players in the draft...and Murray hasn't drafted high enough or been here long enough for that...Karlsson's gonna be a good one.

11-3-1 divisional record now. Would be a Montreal-Boston first round matchup if the season ended today.

Yeah, he was the only Sen that impressed me. He worked hard, good speed, and went to the net.

Butler was good too, since he seemed to get all of their real scoring opportunities. He couldn't do anything with them tho.

Other than that...

Yup, 3 really dumb moves. Why trade Hossa for Heatley when Hossa actually liked being in Ottawa and resigned with the team?

Losing Chara in free agency has to be one of the all time dumb moves tho. How that was even a choice for Sens IDK.

Havlat for zip too.

When you let that kind of legit talent leave with nothing to show for it, you're going to get years like this one.

Brodeur and Elliott both had many quality scoring chances... against them.
