He seems to do that reverse hit a lot lately as he carries the puck around the net. New signature move?

Can't beat the "wrap around the net, gather speed and touch the ice" move
On the other hand, he should really the drop the "I'm gonna wind up so high, my stick is gonna hit the roof" move...

We can't tank. That much is obvious.

Hopefully Habs send Leblanc to the AHL soon. No point having him up playing 4th line minutes. I think he should follow Pacioretty, Plekanec, Desharnais, Subban and be allowed to dominate in the AHL offensively for a season. Why deviate from what seems to be the best development method for this team? He's a NHLer but I believe he can develop into a top 6 NHLer with some offensive development.

Why did the Habs win? Because Buffalo brought Sabres to a SHOOT out.

Agreed, although he's proven he can play an effective third line game already imo, but under 10 minutes of ice time is not enough for a developing player.

He can get used to playing with Geoffrion as well, maybe they can gain some chemistry.

Habs trolled me pretty bad in my first live game. Every single player I hate on this team scored.

haha feels like he hasn't done that in forever i dont remember seeing it. The teams playing some solid hockey lately they're scoring goal although the defense could be better. But they seem to be playing more as a team offensively and they look to be working better together and growing together i cant wait for the years to come

I know it's a stupid thing to even consider, but damned if Miller didn't look sort of ready to tank in the shoot out. He made the save, but let it go, twice.

I know, that's sports, bad year, bad bounces and all, but... the skill to keep the puck out was there, the will wasn't. Twice.

Miller has been like that all year though.

Yeah that's what happens in a Tank vs Tank battle. Habs lose the tank, win the game.
They can't do anything white.

doubt the players wanted to lose, only fans are dumb enough to hope for their team to lose.

Hopefully someone youtubes the whole PP shift that led to the Kaberle goal. Best shift of the season right there.

Reminds me of that episode of south park where the guys just want to lose the baseball games so they can play video games all summer, but the teams they play try even harder to lose on purpose.

And I find it hard to believe that there are fans who truly believe that there are NHL hockey players out there who will try to lose a game on purpose.

I agree...but at least he is playing good. I'd have more of an issue with it if he wasn't playing well.

Speaking of guys who are playing well..P.K. Subban..awesome.

if he wanted to tank, he would of let in a goal in the 3rd period easy instead of getting the point and then in the shootout trying to let goals in haha

Darche is our superstar. He could be a very effective serviceable player for a team looking to go on a long playoff run. Gauthier might get a 4th or 5th for him.

He's a young power forward, needs to play to develop.

As for the game that was an ugly win with the strangest scoring sheet ever

DD's line struggled yet they scored 1 and the 2 goals on the SO.
Still it was an off game for them. It happens.
Just add everyone of them that talks about it to your IL...It's really cool.
