Ahh that feels good to type.
Lemaire has a better chance of being struck by lightning than Habs scoring an EN goal.

We win a high percentage of the games Tom Pyatt plays and lose a surprisingly high percentage of the games he sits.

Record when Tom Pyatt is shunted aside: 8-12-1
Record when Tom Pyatt is in the lineup: 34-18-6

Of course, Pyatt is by no means the key difference maker in so many games, but icing Pyatt, who has great work habits, and plays Martin's system correctly 95% of the time, may just have a positive rub-off effect on other players.

The Habs' faults when they lose are very often the following:

- They do not support the puck well
- They take selfish or lazy penalties
- They fail to cover their men in the defensive zone
- They give up too many odd-man rushes
- They commit too many turnovers in their own zone and at the opponents' blueline
- They are afraid to take a hit to make a play
- They give up too many goals on the PK

Tom Pyatt almost NEVER makes any of the mistakes listed above.

When he plays he helps the team more by making very, very few errors and taking virtually no stupid penalties while doing a good job on the PK, than he hurts it by not being the greatest 4th line scorer.

Tom Pyatt was a very, very important player in the two playoff series wins over Washington and Pittsburgh last year, and I hope Jacques Martin goes back to rewarding his efforts like he did last year, and plays him every game (so long as he keeps playing smart). Not only is that fair to Pyatt, but it shows the rest of the team that Martin is serious about how he claims to want the game played.

In the end, it's about winning - nothing else! The stats above take in too many games to be a fluke. There must be real reasons for why that is happening, and I hope I have explained some of them.

Well Cammalleri went on a break away in the last minute of the game so he would have most probably got one which would have been good for his confidence. Missed an open net in the 2nd, that's how bad things are going right tnow despite the goal in Carolina

thanks. and isnt that called GOING TO THE NET or WORKING IN THE DIRTY PLACES? I think its something that you do in hockey . Wouldnt that be slashing or roughing or something against Marty.

He just didn't want to give Darche a hattrick. Classless.

There. All that panic after last game was totally unwarranted. The team played their usual defensive style tonight. The devils barely touched the puck for most of the evening.

Magic Number is now 3 vs. the Hurricanes. The 'Canes play tomorrow, so with any luck the Habs will get more traction.

The Habs could actually clinch before they play their next game! The Rangers has a tough 2-in-2 coming up versus Philly and Boston. If the Rangers lose both in regulation, they will become unable to catch the Habs, and that will clinch the playoffs for Montreal.

Obviously, pyatt is a player with limited offensive skills, and like you said, these stats dont mean that pyatt is the key to montreal's success, but when you watch this guy play, you just dont see many mistakes on his part. When pyatt has the puck in the defensive zone, its coming out one way or the other. He's not going to turn the puck over, and he's not going to extend his shift.

I just feel secure when he's on the ice.

People hate Pyatt like they hated Darche at the beginning of the year. It's the same kind of story; he's not a player thats flashy nor a player that will ever be a go-to guy on any team, but he does everything the coach tells him to a tee, and gets as much out of what little talent he has, almost every night. Sometimes, that kind of work ethic can be infectious. Maybe he won't get on the scoresheet, but his tireless effort can inspire more talented players to work harder. That would be my explanation why the team plays better when he's in the lineup.

Did you expect him to say he was the 2nd best goalie?

Just wanted to add this...

Montreal is still making uncharacteristic mistakes, but something they had tonight which they haven't had much of lately is their skating legs.

This team cannot survive without their legs going. I was getting concerned that perhaps the team was out of gas after a season where so many guys had to step out of their usual roles and assume a larger workload.

But it still seems as though the legs have something left... how much is there, we'll find out

Yet, when everything is bad, we shouldn't panic....but when everything is good, everything is fine? I mean, aren't things supposed to be in perspective good or bad? Lemaire himself said that lately since his team is out of it, that they slowed down considerably....So we still beat teams that are out of the playoffs. I wouldn't consider this a statement game no matter how tough games are against Jersey.

It was a good solid game nonetheless. But if we can't get carried away at one end.... But at one point, you make it sound as if we're just the best team in the league..."Played our usual self, so Jersey didn't touch the puck...". Yes, we weren't as bad as the blowouts we witness....but we might not be as good as having a style who will not permit the opponent to never touch the puck either.

Yet solid all-around, was fun to see Darche succeed like that. For any haters out there....while not the most talented, as of now, he's just a MUST on this team bringing stuff other players don't bring.

I think you're attributing too much of that success to Pyatt. Give us more evidence of whast he actually did to deserve your defending him.
