I think that Eller's defensive game has been extremely good this year and he was very good last night.
I'm glad someone else noticed.

Well deserved for Carey and about time, he should be at 4 shutouts already

My thoughts on the game:
Thriller, both teams playing well, impressed by Huberdeau.
Kulikov is very good and the Panthers played a tight defensive game.
We were the better team in periods 1,2 & OT, Panthers outplayed us in the third.
All in all we deserved the W, I think the 1-0 score is pretty fair in regards to what happened on the ice.
Don't whine about the refs Floridians, the Habs outplayed your team.

If you traded watching the game for a hot date, you definitely came out on top. No pun intended.

Should have been a trip called on Pleks, but also a dive...he really tried to sell it and neither ref took it on...that says something...

Plekanec didn't move his skate to trip him though iirc, Huberdeau skated into it.

Loving Eller's play. He's so fast out there and is looking really comfortable with the puck.

Hope Prust drops to the 4th line and Eller, takes his spot with DD and Cole soon.

Somehow off topic, but I hate how people keep comparing Gallagher to Gionta. They're not the same kind of player at all. Gallagher has way more puck skills than Gionta, he's more of a pain in the ass, nastier, he hits more than I've ever seen Gionta hit in his career, and he has a much better wrister.

Sounds good, with Eller on LW in that case, and Prust at Center.

That leaves Patches with the Gallys, though I wouldn't mind seeing him and Bourque switch. Pleks should get more minutes than Chuck, and Patches more than Bourque. Also, Pleks' line lacks a bit of vision, Pacioretty is actually a good setup man, better than Bourque. So each line has at least one guy with vision, DD on one, Patches on another and Chuck on the third.

The Pleks line can now take the most minutes (30% at ES), the Prust line can play either a banging style or a shutdown style for 20%, and DD's and Chuck's lines are both offensive threats and should play 25% each of the ES minutes.

At the same age, Gionta certainly had better puck skills than Gallagher.
I don't think anyone would claim otherwise. But they play such a similar game.
Both drive the net a lot, especially for little guys, and shoot a lot from everywhere.
And of course very similar in character.

At the same age, Gionta was playing for Boston College... Gallagher is producing at a decent pace in the NHL.

The fact that some players are still in college at 20 doesn't reduce
Gionta's hockey skills. We are talking about a player that scored 48 goals
in the NHL, at a time when defenses were thought to be too dominant.

05-06 was a weird year. Gionta hasn't hit 30 in any other season.

The 2005-2006 season in the NHL was an aberation in many ways. There's a reason why Gionta scored all those goals this year, is that there was literally zero, zero tolerance on hooking and holding. Guys like Gomez had a blast out there too.

I personally never saw Gionta skate and dangle with the puck in a similar way Gallagher does. His speed and skating have always a notch above Gallagher's, but the most gifted of those two is Gallagher IMO, and it's not that close. I think we're just comparing them because they're both diminutive wingers who charge the net. But besides that, I don't see many similarities. Gallagher is also much better to gain the zone with the puck.

Great road trip!

This had probably been mentioned in this thread a countless times already but I really want to see a line of

Pacioretty-Galchenyuk-Bourque
Gallagher-Plekanec-Gionta
Eller-Desharnais-Cole
Prust-Nokelainen-Armstrong

Good game.

Plekanec, Subban and Price were the best players for the Habs as far as I'm concerned.

Emelin struggled and Pacioretty is trying to hard - he needs to calm it down and use his vision more. He's playing with low hockey IQ and it's concerning.

Okay. I think there you have another difference in opinion. I don't think
Gallegher is going to be much of a " dangler " in the NHL.

And I still wonder if you're swayed too much by this older version of Gionta.
I know he hasn't scored 30 or more since that one big year. But he's a lot
of 20's, and has been a solid top 6 winger for many years. That is setting the
bar high enough for Gallagher. I'll be very happy if he gets that good.

And I still see many similarities other than height. For example, I could
see Gallagher wearing an A or even a C, for much the same reasons as Gionta.

I had forgotten that particular "crackdown" attempt. It could easily
have been a factor in allowing a small player to be so successful. But it
takes a lot of skill as well, and many good players didn't get 40 goals that
year. So I guess I'm still disagreeing.

not whining it was clearly a horrific call. My seasons are a perfect view but dont take my word see below.

Regardless, Very good teams overcome poor reffing; we didn't.

It was a good game to attend overall score reflects even three periods very enjoyable and OT is the luck of the draw. Congrats on the win! looks like we will play each other alot next year based on what im hearing.

Cheers.

Have you forgotten that Gionta once scored 48 goals for the Devils? Were they all on slap shots?

He hit 29 twice. Once with us in 69 games, or so. 65 ? Still, it was an odd year.
