Tonight, Lars Eller looked like Marian Hossa. He used his big frame to his advantage, and won several puck battles along the boards. That puck he stole at the Ottawa blueline (to set up Galchenyuk) at the end of regulation was Hossa-esque.

Hopefully this continues.

Poor Galchenyuk.

His superb shot is already forgotten.

If he could start finding the net a bit more, my god, what a player the habs have and if he doesn't, he creates so much space and turnovers while playing solid in his own end.

so strong on that puck!

Thought pk had a meh 1st, and got better as the game went on. Played 30 minutes but you couldn't tell.

Pacioretty with an off night, and galchenyuk feeding on eller's play was nice to see. Gallagher did his thing and the young guys were the difference!!!!

oh ya, Pateryn with another solid start!!!

When Eller plays with confidence it's a joy to watch. Besides everything else, 7 shots on goal (the team as a whole was feasting, everyone but Moen and Pateryn got at least on SOG and most got more, but only Pacioretty and Eller got that ridiculous amount) and a high end two way game.

Of course blowing the lead sucked but at least it hurts the Leafs.

Eller is become the big body center we need in the top six. It's just unreal how dominant he is lately. He needs even more playing time.

Seriously, Eller was simply dominant. He is so strong and poised with the puck. Very Hossa-esque or Forsberg-esque.

How can you not get excited about this core.... ELLER, PATCHES, GALLY X 2, SUBBAN, PRICE, DIAZ, EMELIN....and with other potential core players on the way....TINORDI, KRISTO, COLLBERG, BEAULIEU... And even more just starting to make noise...the darkness has definately lifted, great time to be a Habs fan

Eller and Gally need to be in the shootout pretty much every time! They're both studs in it!

What is really impressive is that absolutely nothing was given to this kid. Just serious hard work, focus and determination.
He was given something: the third line center job. And under Martin, he had found his niche, and as long as he was playing good defensive hockey and didn't complain, nobody was bothering him. But then Therien came, look at him, pulled the rug under him, and told him he needed to want it. And look at the result. This year, Eller wants it. And in the end, like you say, the solution came from him. He had it in him.

I'd like to reread the post i made at the beginning of the season where i was saying that Eller under Therrien will become a Jordan Staal type player.

Well i see some similarities alright.

Always loved the kid and knew he would bloom soon his time might be now. He has a mean side when he puck handles it's truly a beauty plus what a takeaway machine.

Great win for the Habs. I like how Carey battle at the end to make sure we got the win.

Eller
DD
Galchenyuk should be a fixture in the SO

I always say we're the Blues of the East while Ottawa is Nashville.

There's no denying Plekanec plays harder minutes and is the better defesive player.
But offensively Eller seems to be better player.

The way I see it, more Eller on offense: Good Thing.
More rested Plekanec to play the harder minutes: Good Thing.

Dumont, Plekanec and Gionta can be 3rd line. When Bourque comes back he replaces Dumont to make the same line from the beginning of the year.

In the meat time Ryder, Eller, Galchenyuk can be a strong 2nd line.

Indeed, Therrien has handled him very well.

Eller and Subban will get very nice raises on their next contracts if they keep playing like this.

He reminded me more of Vincent Lecavalier in his prime than Marian Hossa.

The Sens are so hard to beat.

Good to see that different players are taking charge each game for the Habs.

Eller is onnhis way to become a key player for his team.

Habs need muscle.

Beast game by Eller, Lehner and Subban.

Dumont > Armstrong.

I feel confident with Galchenyuk, Desharnais and Eller as our first 3 shooters during the shootouts.

1st in the East; business as usual. Deal with it league.

Eller was everywhere tonight, looked really good

A perfect future winger for Eller would be Kristo. I have a feeling those two could work magic. Hopefully MB gets Kristo signed and I don't think he will need much time in Hamilton, he should make the jump about as fast as Gallagher has. Eller was definitely the best forward tonight, I could not believe his forechecking and puck stealing he did in the third. I was expecting the police to take him in for theft
