This is my first time seeing Nokelainen with the Habs...how has he been?
From a guy who actually likes Engqvist and thinks he'll be a solid player eventually - refreshing. The guy is awesome. Smart player, good speed, good on draws (although he's not taking any tonight since our Top-3 centres have been dynamite).
I'm not saying this has been Perry Pearn's fault but DAMN i love the way the habs played that period. We all know Pearn was in charge of the defense and special teams but tonight thepPower play looks dangerous, PK is ok for now, Gill 2nd least in minutes, Diaz last in mins for D...Habs defense actually sticking up for Price when ever a flyers player get near (Cole, Weber all jumping on Simmons, JVR, etc.)
it seems like 2 different teams came to play in the first and second period...what a difference a goal makes....that was some entertaing hockey...just gotta get better on the PK...keep getting caught out of position
AGREE wholeheartedly with Bob MacKenzie - "The HABS have played better than their record reflects" (dominated BUFF + FLA and LOST). Hell, I thought we could have been 3-0 to start the year - weren't, but we were NOT playin bad!!
BTW, who else likes waking to Evelyn Audet everyday??? (Ok, video featuring, Evelyne??) Just askin?
