Because it's a win, sugar - you get hosed with **** luck on the last two goals and you pull through in the end. A win's a win. And don't give me that about "you make your own luck", such an annoying hockey cliche.
Frustrating end of game, but seriously those 2 last goals were garbage lucky bounces. Price had basically no chance on the 3 goals...
I'll take the win and not start whining about this, for those saying 'Habs don't deserve to win' when they outplayed the Lightning for about 50 minutes, tell me how the Lightning would deserve it for getting lucky a bunch of lucky bounces in the last 5 minutes.
Pacioretty-Galchenyuk-Gallagher should stick together. Good passing, and some great chances, they need some games to gel, but they could do some damage, all very fast. Eller played great, he's such a solid stick handler and puck carrier, I just hope he gets a shot at decent linemates. Also, I know PK screwed up a few times but I did like he decision making in the Ozone tonight. Didn't go for the big wind up, he got the puck on net and it paid off.
Well, well, well... Not really sure what to think about this one. TB scored two fluky goals tonight to tie the game and barely had any chances throughout the whole game. I found Montreal barring the collapse were playing well at shutting down Tampa's big pieces offensively. Eller and Plekanec had their best of the game of the year defensively, they were stealing pucks from the Bolts all night and were always 1 play ahead defensively. Kudos to Markov who also had a strong game defensively. I recall two plays where he deflected the puck wisely to break some good scoring chances. I felt the effort was there for Cole tonight but the execution and the results still aren't there. But this team is starting to make me pull my hair, that's 3 games in the last 4 games that the team could have easily won but due to lack of discipline, mental collapses or just plain badluck they blew leads. I know the team has this new motto of 'No excuses' so they have nothing but to blame themselves. I'm starting to fear that this core is too weak mentally to have success at this point, I don't think Gionta is good leader. I know he's the quiet type but it's in times like these where you have to speak up. You can't keep losing points on stupid things just cuz **** happens, especially in a 48 game season. I almost had an heart attack when I heard RDS say that Bouillon was taking the second shot in the SO
Anyway, I'd be great if you guys could check out my video for Markov.
It's not like they really sit on their lead. Tying goal was extremely unlucky. 2nd goals hit Hedman's glove and went in, not much they could have done about it. Is there really anyone that we should singled out for a really poor performance?
