So Porter needs to sit....the D needs to be better...the whole team needs to get on the ball...Stastny's line was great finally, RoR's line was good in bursts...Duchene's line was horrible most of the game. We got a lucky win.
Sloppy game. Need to really hammer home clearing and gaining the zone. There were too many chances produced from the Avs giving up the puck at the Habs blueline as well as from the Avs inability to clear their own zone.
Varly started to look a bit shellshocked, though I'm not surprised. A lot of those goals he got no help on whatsoever.
What a game. Crazy. Bad. But we take a win.
Seriously, you won't win a lot of games like this one and the game vs Columbus.
Nevertheless 4-1 is a pretty good start.
We had games when our D was awesome, we had games with our 1st line being awesome, games with our 2nd line being solid, our 3rd line is almost always awesome.
Let's get it together and we're a solid team.
Varly didn't look as great tonight as he did before but seriously our D was pretty bad tonight as well.
45 SA and some pretty big opportunities for the Habs. Nevertheless Varly had some great saves (eg the beginning of the 3rd on the PK and so on). He will be fine
The guys looked tired in this one. The only times I noticed Duchene was when he was turning the puck over and when he scored in the shootout. Hopefully they get some rest after this one and make it count. Everyone is entitled an ugly win, let's not assume that this will be par for the course.
He should look unhappy. He's trying waaaaaaay too much out there, and more often than not he just turns the puck over. He's good with the puck on his stick but he needs to settle down and use his linemates more.
