Out of 57 games this season, the Habs have led at some point in the game 41 times. Their record in those games is 23-10-8 or if you prefer they lost 28 points in those games. IF the Habs had only lost HALF of those points (which is the average points lost by any team leading at some point since the lockout) they would have 69 points or if you prefer tied for 4th place in the Eastern Conference and just one point from the NE division lead.
How do you lead in 72% of the games and be in this position?
Was a great, chippy game. The smurfs are dead. This team is a lot bigger now than it was earlier this season, and bigger players get more ice time. We were definitely the "predators" on the ice tonight, dishing out the biggest hits and looking more intimidating.
