This board is hilarious. We're first in the division and on an 8 game point streak and the knives are out for 1/2 the team.

Some guys here are only happy when they have something to b1tch about and tonight is the closest thing they've had to an excuse to complain in 2 weeks and they're taking full advantage.

Looking forward to the leafs game. Same effort as tonight and I like their chances.

Go Habs.

8-9 players in their line up tonight have under 50 nhl games in their career and they still beat us. Give them some credits.
There is no credit to be given for tonight. I conceed they have done metric f-ton better than they should be considering the injuries but tonight's game was a **** show. COMPLETELY dominated in all aspects. This game can be a 5-6-7 to nothing game 4 times out of 5.

Honest question: David Desharnais or Pierre Dagenais? Hey...wait a sec. I think I found a pattern.

I don't know why but these kinds of losses hurt more than when you get outplayed by a good team and lose. It's like studying very hard for a test and only getting 60%.

I just hope the team will be able to bounce back after this.

I hate shootouts. The game was actually pretty exciting during regulation and overtime but I guess the "fans" in the USA want a lame shootout to decide the outcome of a game.

Except one, in goal. Bishop won the dual and it was enough for them to win the game unfortunately.

I am of the same mindset, I'm not even mad we lost because I know we played well and were the better team. I just hope we keep it up through this tough week of games.

Sorry if I seemed insensitive about the Senators. We all know they are dealing with injuries which is why they look so bad. Their goalie was the difference. It sucks, but it happens. Like you said, as Habs fans we should know what it's like more than anyone.

MTL should have won tonight. You ran into a hot goalie.

That said, the team and Ottawa fans deserve this. Three injured superstars and two more critical players injured is a lot to bear.

Man I hate PGT's after a loss. So many random posters freaking out.

I don't blame Therrien for putting Gionta in on the shootout. He's the captain and should be expected to perform in pressure situations. Therrien needs to test that theory. He wasn't the one who put the C on Gionta's jersey.
As for Pleks in the shootout... ya, that was a bad move. I love Pleks but the shootout is clearly not his thing. And there's nothing really wrong with that because he shows up big when actual hockey is being played.

Deserved win by Ottawa !!

Ben Bishop is a monster.... he is going to be a good one !!

Brian Gionta, as I predicted when the habs got him and Gomez, is garbage... The habs will never do anything good when someone like him is the Captain !! Completely useless player and undersized smurf...

Definately the worst captain in the history of this team by a fair margin.

Wanted to see Eller getting more ice time and have a shot in the shootout, but didn't happen...

Also, P.K Subban was garbage and is the 5th or 6th defencemen at this moment.

He should be mad at himself for having Gionta on the ice on PPs and the SO.
He F'd up and has been F'in up in that respect all season long. Just imagine where the Habs would be if Gionta wasn't on the PP or the SO.
SIGH!

He's useless on the forecheck. He never creates anything. His shots are weak and easy to stop. And for one of the only places where he could be useful to this team, he doesn't even get a shot on net.

Yeah. But blame Galchenyuk. You just show how much you have an agenda.
He points out Galchenyuk to highlight the hypocrisy of posters such as you. Agenda He obviously has an agenda against the best prospect we've had since Price

Also, this is terrible, re-hashed ********. If anything, you have an agenda against Gionta.

To make you feel better: We're gonna get outplayed badly by a team soon and we will be saved by Price/goalposts.

To make you feel bad: Gionta and Kaberle both have another year on their contracts. Thank you Gainey & Gauthier.

Just think about how hard it is to force yourself to even BE a Sens fan with that ridiculous centurion bs. They're not a far cry from leaf fandom. BTW, they never ended up winning a PO series against them all those times, did they?

Let them chirp. I really hope it's mostly about their goalie, or even more so, the god damn posts. I didn't even think Bishop was that miraculous. Well-positioned, yes. Solid, yes. Lucky, YES! A decent finishing attempt on one of 5-6 gimmes would be goals. We got snakebit by the pipes more than the goalie. His strongest suit was taking space away from the shooters.

Tough to blame the goalie for only letting in 1 goal...but you could just tell Price was off from the get-go. Never looked comfortable all game long. Should've had the regulation goal and he didn't look great on either shoot-out goal. Oh well.

Really have to question Gionta to win it in the SO. He hasn't shown any more offense or creativity than a fourth-liner all year and he's your guy to win it? Come on Therrien...Gionta's attempt was that of a guy who had no confidence and knew it. Ugly.

Meh..sucks to generally play so well and not get a win, but at least we did play well. Onto the next. Undefeated in regulation in over 2 weeks.

Gio played great tonight, but I guess HF always needs a scapegoat. Subban, on the other hand, played his worst game of the season.

Gionta bashing is almost as stupid as Cole bashing. I wish some people would kick the internet habit.

There's Rinne who is very consistent but how many of these goalies above deserves a solid top 5 spot?
Only 2 goalies on this list are clearly consistently top 5 and have been for more than 2-3 years. Lundqvist and Rinne. I guess Thomas would have made the list, and you could make a case for Luongo, but I hate Luongo and I think he's just playing behind a good team in Vancouver. I'm not his biggest fan.

The rest ? Maybe none of them are consistent top 5 guys and they fluctuate, like Price. That's basically my point. Why Price more than Luongo, Quick, Miller, Ward, Fleury ? He hasn't done anything more than them. In fact, he has done probably less than most of these names.

We played pretty good, we dominated the whole game. We should have won 3-0 or 4-0.
Most of the players had a good game. The one that stood out the most is Desharnais.
On the negative, I'd say Gionta, Emelin and Price. The performance of Price in SO was mediocre, even his saves didn't look convincing. He made awful move on the last goal.

I can't really argue on that.

But as a coach, you want your captain to get going that's why he puts Gio in the best situation to succeed.

Hard numbers to mesure hands quality, hmm... Eller has 7 double-jointed fingers on each hand which allows him manoeuvrability and wider range of motion

Subban really needs to learn how to play a team game in the offensive zone ; Sens were waiting on him every time with his spinoramas, pivots and predictable useless one-timers. Diaz much more effective than him thus far.

Other than that, I thought the team played a great game. Gio is clearly on the down slope ; no need for all the hate though
