I can't believe how good the Panthers D is making the Habs transition game look. They're just dreadful team again this year. Florida just keeps getting caught with three guys down around the goal line.

Of course, the only goal happened because Kovalev couldn't/didn't stay with his man on the back-check, to the surprise of nobody.

I agree there. I'd take it a step further and I hope they go 0-5. And the Philly fans and and

The Leafs might need to clear some, but I assume that's who Gillis was referring to with "not who you think"

I can't imagine it would be a Western Conference team.

Could it be the Flyers? I could see them looking to improve from Bryz, and they are pressed against the cap so having a deal contingent upon them moving another player (maybe Bryz himself) makes sense.
Philly is the one that jumped to mind as fitting the statement. Would be kind of ridiculous though. Luongo may be an upgrade, but Bryz is good enough for them to win with and has looked good in the first 2 games. If they're going to burn up trade assets it should be to improve their defense.

Didn't look good there

2-0 NJ.

EDIT: Deflected off Flyers skate, so not Bryz's fault.

Devils have only 3 SOG in the 1st. Two of them are goals.

In this short season, each game has a relative value that is 1.7 times that of a game in an 82 game season.

Therefore, a three-game streak is roughly equivalent to a five-game streak in a normal season.

So a five game would be an 8 game streak. Yea 5 game losing streak would be

Capitals look ****ing brutal, no character at all in that locker room. Never understood all the Holtby hype. He had a nice playoffs with Dale Hunter's 6 goalie system but he never impressed me otherwise.

It was but it was more of a love tap than a cheap shot, Marty definitely sold it a little..vet move.

Could see this game getting ugly if NJ scores again, Philly loves resorting to goonery in blowouts.

Markov has 2 PP goals for Montreal tonight..knew he was going to be a steal in fantasy, that guy does wonders for a powerplay.

18 year old Alex Galchenyuk scores his first goal of his NHL career to give the Habs a 4-1 lead over the cats. The rookie talent this season is absurd..

That might happen, but I think they're well prepared for that with guys like Janssen, Carter, Bernier and Matteau in the lineup. Would be nice to se Hartnell up against one of them

Is the Montreal/Florida game and the Nashville/Minnesota game not available in HD for anyone else on FIOS? I'm thinking of ordering CI but I've noticed a lot of games haven't been HD, and I find it difficult to watch SD games now on my tv..the games show up as a tiny box.

Did you see Ovechkins effort on the first PK that led to a goal against?

Philly is a total mess. They're so bad right now, I did not see this coming. It isn't even Bryz, it's just their defense and one dimensional offense.

Washington is a mess. Getting pounded on by the Jets. Awesome.

Carolina is overrated. Shocking. Their defense is terrible, and the Staal brothers have NOT torn it up.

Tampa looks dangerous.

Chicago is unbelievably scary on offense. Holy ****.

Eh, I'm sure most of what I just said will be irrelevant in a week, but it sure is fun to have hockey back <3
