OK, now I am concerned for the tank. The only good news is it won't count in the ROW. We better lose both this weekend. We SHOULD lose in Ottawa and then hopefully we run out of gas on Saturday after so many games in a week. If we had to win one of these three games, I am glad it was this one.
RC is coaching like it's the playoffs and it pisses me off. Riding his top forwards for 22-23 minutes. Subban playing 28 minutes. Barely played the 4th line in the 2nd half of the game. Just cementing his spot as the most hated coach we've had in recent memory.
AGAIN, one line did all the scoring. They won't keep scoring 2 goals a game - that's a 160 goal pace over a full season. No line can score at that pace over a long stretch. Not sustainable.
I love RC.
Playing to win! I ****ing love it.
Guy is fighting for his job and his players seem to be finally fighting for him.
There are lots of good players in the Top-10 and there is always a prospect who falls - probably Galyenchuk or however the hell you spell it.
PS. The first goal was assisted by two 4th liners. Palushaj is completely responsible for Cole even getting into the offensive zone. He made a great steal on the backcheck and then flipped it out right to Noke.
Markov is such a calm player in the defensive zone. Circling back and never panicking with the puck, then making perfect outlet passes to forward. Love him. Thought he would have used his old school backhand move in the shootout.
Desharnais needs 4 more goals to reach 20.
Desharnais needs 5 more points to reach 60.
Pacioretty needs 2 more points to reach 60.
Cole needs 3 more goals to reach 30.
Plekanec needs 5 more points to reach 50.
Subban needs 8 more points to reach 40.
Eller needs 5 more goals to reach 20.
Palushaj needs a damn NHL goal.
even though i'm pro tank watching games like this makes me shake my head. we can and should be between 4-6th. the sens are not a better team. we've had so many ****ing injuries -- top 3 in league i believe. no markov, no wingers for Pleks...no white no staubitz no grit until game 60 or whatever. no dmen outside of gorges and subban - and maybe emelin...one line scoring all the ****ing goals. address this **** asap and we'll be back. but now i want a top 4 pick
I always think I support the tank but winning just feels too good. The draft pick will sort itself out.
Agreed. I want the Habs to get a high draft, but I cheered when DD scored and when Price stopped Alfie. I like winning too much.
Plus, when you see Cole working his ass off out there & continuing to put his body at risk despite our record, it's hard to really get behind the tank. Ditto with Gorges, Subban, Patches, Pleks, Eller & Price. I love the character of these players.
