Travis Moen, maybe I'm crazy but I think he played a great game too, on the PK especially

Couple comments on the game.

1. Eller is so much more comfortable at center. He played a great game.

2. Kostisyn had a monster game. Big hit on Erhoff, played strong on the puck.

3. Seems like Eller fits Kosty's game more than Gomez. Gomez's former linemates generated much more offense today.

Good all-around game boys. Couldn't care less if people say that the Nucks didn't bring it...we didn't let them bring it. Great enough for a road win. Let's hope it gives some life to some players.And...keep Eller at the center position. From this day, to the end of his career. Thank you very much.

As far as DD is concerned, I will not understand it....but tough to blame since we won it. I just wish we'd have a team so that the best defense, would be the offense. How about scoring some more goals instead of playing the PK for the last 20 minutes...But then it wouldn't be Martin hockey.

Let's hope DD rebounds with another solid performance. And let's hope we have another solution than Halpern on the 2nd line.
You may not have noticed, but Halpern played a great game this evening.......

I bet AK don't mind playing on the 4th line with Eller as his center!

I bet CKAC's Michel Villeneuve whines about Desharnais' icetime versus Gomez's tomorrow around 4pm.

Book it.

It has all to do with a lack of salmon and salsa. Not my words but awesome just the same.

Yeah, with Moen. The played in the last minute too

Pretty good game for those three guys. Moen blocking shots. Eller's hardwork and nice feed to AK

That said, I have faith in Martin with our young players. It might be a contrary viewpoint to many people on these forums, but I think he aspires to make his youngsters responsible at all ends of the ice, and until you can prove that you are competent at it, who need to sit out.
In reference to Eller, I assume it mostly has to do with the fact he played great, as well as his ability to match-up physically to the Canucks' centres, which Desharnais cannot do.

Big game Thursday, crush the Leafs hopes a little more.

What Habs fan wouldn't? I don't know what he did to have his ass glued to the bench. I can understand maybe he thought Pouliot took a stupid penalty but DD scored a freaking goal on his first shift. There is no reason whatsoever for him to be playing so few minutes. He can contribute on the PK as well if needed.

Eller hitting might be a stretch........

But AK possibly played his best game of the season. Moen wasn't far behind (but man does he have stone hands!)

Pretty funny that the title of this GDT starts with "Kaboom baby" - those were the exact words I shouted after the Habs won tonight

I thought Mara was pretty solid tonight. Not spectacular, but he does offer some size back there, and he does offer some intimidation. With Moen, Mara, and White we have a tougher team. And I don't care what some people say, but PK will tough it out when he needs to as well.

I actually think that Gauthier has done a decent job at addressing the toughness. I love the fact that Mara addressed Torres' elbow on Patches.

It will be interesting to see what or if anything Gauthier does leading up to the deadline after tonight's game. The team played as a team tonight, with good chemistry.

It was an important game in terms of ending the losing streat, but biggest win to date? Not even close. There was a 4 point game earlier in the season.

If anything, Mara is well-liked in the room. He is loyal - "a good compnay man". He will be able to shave a few minutes off of Hamrlik and Gill's workload which is good considering how unlucky and injury-prone the defense has been this season. I've always liked Mara as limited as he is.

AK's stock just went up..........

Eller is fearless...two Nucks players ready to hit him if he wants to retrieve a loose puck along the boards and the guy still does it and on top of that gains possesion.

I always go back to that shift vs Tyler Myers where he got hit in the head, behind the back, cross checked wtvr...he continued to play hockey and go after the puck. I love his competitivness. Mix that in with his passing ability like on the AK goal...I laugh when people are already claiming the Blues won that trade.
