I can't believe a guy like JM couldn't figure out that a two man aggressive forcheck was the rig strategy!

Cunnyworth is adjusting to the sped and talent of his players... Something the BONEHEAD Martin was too stubborn to realize!

I love the lines although an effective 4th line would help half a season to play.

So we're only -2 now. If they can play as they should be able to play, Habs are gonna make the playoffs. There are about 6 teams who are between even and +6. These places will change in the span of half a season, especially since Buf, Win, Pits are having some troubles right now. NJ and Tor have been playing ,500 hockey for awhile now. Ottawa is playing over its head.

People hoping for a tank will have to keep their fingers crossed.

That is the kind of hitting we saw when Montreal dominated in 08. Can't believe it took this long but thank god it is back.

Other thing is RC doesn't punish a young player for making a mistake. So now the young players are loose knowing they will not be benched for an error.

I can't believe so many jokers thought/think Guy Boucher is the second coming.

Emelin adds Ryan Malone to his "You's a female dog" list. That list is getting longer and longer.

Boston is COMING, mother****er. I hope he trounces a couple of them. They've had it coming for years.

You guys have seen Stamkos tonight? He was invisible.

He is................
As an AHL coach where everyone is trying to make the bigs.
Jury is still out as an NHL coach.
They too have had their injuries, only time will tell.

I only watched the last seven minutes of the game and the thing that surprised me is that they weren't setting back in defensive mode like they did with JM. They attacked, tried creating something offensively and mostly played like, I would guess, the way they played the entire game.

That was the problem with JM. A one goal lead automatically became a huge defensive and boring game in which the opposing team eventually scored and won.

No, they're not. Best to get out of your mind right away.

They need to go .670 the rest of the way to get to 94, which is Toronto's point pace. .670 would put them third in the NHL. The Habs are good, but they are not THAT good.

Winning in 2012 is fun, but it's most likely futile. Firing Martin and replacing him with Cunneyworth has already shot the season. Even if Cunneyworth somehow turns into a good coach from here on out, that ham-fisted usage that led to the 1-6 record to close out December sank the team.

It's unfortunate, because the Habs are actually a pretty good team. Injuries and all, they've managed to outscore their opponents on aggregate outside of empty-net situations. Despite a PP that's been ridiculously unable to finish, this supposedly talented bunch who can't score just inched their way into the top half of league scoring. Their goals against remains respectable despite the defensive gong shows we've seen immediately following the coaching change.

What might have been. A shame.

Angry that Pacioretty said he was tired.

Angry that the Plek line didn't have good scoring chances.

They're grasping as straws here. Really. I mean, why not talk about Emelin making Malone look like a pinball marble?

Very solid win. Nice to see the team aggressive in the third period instead of sitting. So anxious moments in the third at times but overall a good effort.

Need a lot more of these types of games.

Andrei K. was the best forward tonight. I was surprised to see he wasn't among the 3 stars. The Eller line was the best line. Pleks line was the worst.

Our transition game is still a problem and it's 95% due to our D's. We have no real puck-moving D. There is Subban but he has changed his game quite a bit. BTW Campoli plays like a slightly faster Gill.

That's where we really miss Markov (more than on the PP IMO).

Some notes:
-DD was the most used forward with more than 21 minutes and had a great 3rd period in the face-offs circle (went from 40% after 2 to 58% after 3).

-Cole got his point streak extended to 5 games while DD got his point streak extended to 4 games (his career high, for the 3rd time)

-Emelin sure likes to hit

Yeah all 6ft4 of Malone tries a big open ice hit on Emelin and gets bowled over. You fail Malone!!!

It works against Tampa, which is a bad team with a very shallow defense. Against a team with a skilled back-end, it'll get ripped apart in transition, but hopefully Randy will gameplan differently.
