Not the best win ever, but still got the two points! Hopefully the boys can start turning this losing record at home around. I thought the effort was pretty good tonight and most of the game was very entertaining.

Outside of a couple of games during that early win streak against Boston and Philly, this team still hasn't played the way I think they're capable of. However, given the amount of injuries the Habs have dealt with, the fact that they're now in 7th in the Eastern Conference is actually pretty good. It is getting a little ridiculous though that we can't seem to have a game go by without another injury. Now Moen

Entertaining game , lots of positives but among the negatives is the dangerous game Subban continues to play and the appparent disinterest of Cammy.

I don't think we are in position to moan about those loser points about to be handed out.

I remember not liking the fan vote because I knew it would be the end of things like Gorges getting a star for a strong defensive game.
What I don't like is that in an O/T game whoever scores the winner is first star....that's crap.

The fans usually get it right....but Nokes was not the first star of this game.

Nice to be able to hang onto the win. Let's hope it's 'catching'....

4 Gomez references in a game he didn't play.

Well done guys, you deserve a pat on the back.

Did Moen get hurt ?
Cause according to TSN he only had 3:00 of ice time.

Seems weird to bench a solid defensively, gritty veteran who has found his scoring touch.

Great game by the whole team. There were only a couple of mistakes and the Isles converted on them. Let's try not to throw the puck into the slot to get it out (PK, Diaz). Otherwise, we really did play a great game, irrespective of the fact it was NYI. Great intensity by Cole, DD and Patches. The only one who seems to be left behind is Cammy, although he did help on the winning goal.

Liking the PP even though it wasn't 4/4. Good puck movement, just need better decisions by the fwds and Kab and PK need to work on the bomb setup.

Thank you AGAIN, Carey Price.

It's even more crap when it's the SO winner . I remember Cammy playing a crap game, scoring the winner in the SO and getting first star.
Also strong defensive games don't get noticed usually.

Has anyone noticed that Kaberle was on the ice when we scored our 2 latest PP goals?

ya that's what I thought when I saw it live. guy is a beast and had one hell of a game. Still there will be those who will say he disappears. Give him PP time and enough ice time and he'll be there.

Yeah, Moen blocked a shot in the first and wasn't on the bench afterwards. Tried to come back for the 2nd period but I guess he couldn't. They're calling it a lower-body injury at the moment.

I was sad to see the Habs let another lead slip away tonight....but it was great to see them put some jump in their step and battle back to re-gain the lead and pull out the win. It might not have been a pretty win....but its games like this one tonight that build confidence and shows the team that they can play offensive in the 3rd period and win games.

I'm sick of watching them sit back in the 3rd period and try to hold on for the win. We don't have the defence to do that anymore....we should be trying to score until the 3rd period horn sounds!!

Anyways....good win tonight!!

PS........Cammalleri has looked like garbage all season long and tonight was another awful effort from him!!
