Max Pacioretty is a star player and he showed it tonight, this kid reminds me of the player on the left hand side of my post. The difference is that we wont make the same mistake twice. The hockey gods smiled on us tonight, what a win. GO Habs Go.
I'm on the fence on the Brown call but it was at a very dangerous place where Gorges could have been seriously hurt. Is the NHL that primitive that only a serious injury gets a 5 minute major?
I'm all for having tough players but just running around and not even playing the puck is the moronic part of hockey. Emelin gets a penality for hitting Khadri like 18 inches from the puck but clowns like Mclaren and Orr can run your best players like 5 seconds after the puck is gone.
For all the Leaves fans complaiining about missing key players...
1-Diaz and Bourque are just as important if not more than Frattin and Reimer
2-The only reason it wasn't 5-2 after 2 is the two empty nets missed by Pacioretty plus the post by Emelin. Toronto was playing the Ottawa rope a dope and mostly hanging on.
