The grittyer teams always win in the playoff. Softies just disappear. Just like Plekanec did against the Bruins last night and in the playoffs. You need players you can always depend on. Not the case for Plekanec.

White wasn't disciplined and he needs to be smarter, but I don't blame him. His penalties were very harsh. No need for 4min, and you could have called Ott for going low. I mean, the refs know who the heck Ott is right?? He isn't this innocent player. Also, Brennan who was sitting on the bench actually tried to grab White and touched him. That should have been a penalty too.

I hate blaming the refs, but come on..

As for our players, the kids definitely need more ice time. More of Eller and Gallagher, less of Cole and DD.
The reason that the play continued was because the puck lay loose between Budaj's legs. If he freezes the puck the game is over and we're not freaking out here.

The reason Pacioretty-Desharnais-Cole will not be broken up is simple...DD can't be on a line Gallagher or Gionta.

wow

new to forum just wanted to chime in, I watched the game tonight, and I have to say i was very disappointing how could we squander that lead.

I dont know whats going on with cole, he reminds me of zednik except instead of skating and crashing into the net, he crashes behind the net accomplishing nothing, he is brain dead this season.

White was the reason we lost this game, a double minor in the third is never a good thing, as bad as budaj is we still could have won if we didnt take that penalty.

Everybody has been signing the paises of Therrien (and that's fine with the great start) but I kepy hearing "he's leant from his mistake". And I thought to myself : well let's wait for a little slump and see if he actually leanred anything... If tonight is an indication, not sure he has.

It's easy to stay cool when everything goes your way.

Budaj had a better sv % than Biron on a much worse team last year and is making slightly less money.

Budaj is looking like trash right now but let's not pretend Biron is Marty Brodeur just because they have the same first name.

MT on White.
Deserved. It was egoistical and had nothing to do with team concept. Just a dumb dumb play. I hope calling out players in public doesn't become common but tonight, it was deserved.

Let's move on and hopefully, he understands.

Why isn't the defence being mentioned at all? Outside of the PP we have a brutal backend that can't move the puck or clear the crease.

Its not a level of idol worship for a 4th liner.......Ryan White.

Its more a level of incredulity that we have a piss poor backup goalie who is worthless and a referee that always screws the Habs in a game.........while watching a portion of the fanbase go ape **** crazy in their attacks on Ryan White.

I cant wait for the first time Prust takes a penalty and the other team scores a PP goal with him in the box.

That should be a good one, eh?

I was impressed with some of White's shifts before he was benched. The guy was flying, and throwing hits. But fairness of his penalties aside, it does bother me that he does this in his first game back after being benched for the same thing. You'd think he'd be trying extra hard not to flip out.

How many good games has Cole, DD and MaxPac as an individual this season?

1 for Cole
1 for DD
I don't even know for Max.

The slow start excuse should stop now. 10 games already, more than 20% of the season. Eller got scratched once for playing one bad game (like the rest of his teammates) but he played 2-3 good games in a row.

I made a comment back before White was scratched the first time, when the usual suspects accused me of being a "pacifist" for proposing that White needs to learn a lesson.

I find it interesting how much of these same people applauded when Eller was scratched for less, and have been calling for everyone from Cole to Desharnais to Subban get punished for making mistakes.

Apparently fighting a lot is the one skill in hockey that makes you untouchable.

I hope White isn't chased out of town...at times he looks like a great 4th liner, hitting everything that moves, defending his teammates and showing an ability to take faceoffs and play solid defensive hockey. But that was stupid, just too stupid. For those who worship the Bruins, you don't see the Bruins ever doing that...they pick their battles.

White's confidence must be at an all time career low...ouch.

I have faith in MT in getting him together.

This is true and like it or not this will spell the end of DD's time in Montreal at the centre position. The kid isn't strong enough to play the body and not skilled enough to make up for that. He might find a place on the third line but I doubt it.

They should try Galchenyuk on the first line for one game just to try it and change things for that line.

I'm not saying 100% of the blame should fall on White; I'm taking issue with the fact that you're suggesting 0% of it should.

But it's your shtick, so I only have myself to blame here. White could turn around and rifle the puck into his own net and I'd be arguing with you about why it wasn't a smart thing to do.
