Winning games regularly despite Price not being at his best. Who would have thought this was possible before the season started?

What we've seen this season is a different set of forwards stepping up each game and carrying the load successfully. Today, it was Eller.

The scariest observation I can make is that Subban had a sub par game, but still looked good overall. That's just an indication of how good he is, and who knows where the ceiling stops rising.

Eller has forced himself into the PP lineup IMO. Of course that doesn't mean he'll play on it , but he has proven over this season that his puck protection and hands are what we need. Habs biggest problem is controlling the puck and setting up, and with Eller and Subban (our two best puck handlers) we can cut down on time wasted on the PP. Play him as a wing, but PLAY HIM, for logic's sake!

Also, his added weight this year has him playing like a true warrior. He's way stronger than alot of players are thinking and they're getting burned. Hopefully he can get Galch the puck more and break his slump.

When Bourque is back:

Bourque-Plek-Gio
Pac-DD-Gally/Ryder
Galch-Eller-Gally/Ryder
Moen-White-Armstrong/Prust (if healthy)

One good game does not make Eller a superstar - unfortunately.
He needs to play like this every game.

The defense on the first two goals was awful (more like the PK system is awuful).
Price was awful on the 3rd goal.

Glad MT didn't put Gionta on the SO.

Eller was a beast.

Subban made some fantastic/breathtaking plays, but he also turned it over way too much at times. Which is why we're seeing completely different opinions on his game in this PGT.

There was a shift in the 2nd where he made like 3 key blunders.

Galchenyuk should be a fixture in the SO
He already is. he's been our 1st shooter in every SO this season.

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.

The fact that Plekanec can put up 50 points, more like 60+ with good wingers in extremely difficult minutes means there's no reason to not use him in that role. Eller is good defensively and should be given a two way role himself, but the status quo is working decently, if anything needs to be tweaked it's the wingers and power play.

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.
This. I doubt he gets time over MT's boy Armstrong but man has he impressed me. Also you're right about the shootout. Those three should be the order every time.

You nailed it, Kristo would be beautiful next to Eller. But our GM is MB not PG

The thing is over last month and a half Eller has been arguably this team's best centre. Goes beyond this game. He's slowly been reaching what he has shown tonight.

As a DD fan, I have to say, I love Eller too. He's becoming a very good 2 way player on the Plekanec mold, with maybe even more natural talent. This season is quite exceptionnal as we're able to keep 4 legit top 2 centers on the team. I hope they manage to find a way to keep them all long term!! Awesome "problem" for Bergevin.

30 mins of ice time for Subban? Yes please!

I would honestly play him for the entire 2 minutes of PP time.

Hopefully this continues.
Isn't Galchenyuk's potential compared to Hossa?

Two Hossas?

Notes:

-Eller. There is nothing left to say. From being a scratch in the season opener, to his game tonight, this kid has skill, two way awareness. Him and Galchenyuk are a great duo. What do I feel Bourque would be a perfect fit on that other wing?
-Subban is playing with so much confidence right now that it seems every shot will go in. He's really excelled in Therrien's system. Him and Markob have developed great chemistry too.
-Price seems to be a bit loss, but I'm not worried. We know what he is capable of, he as proved it. He will get back in his groove any game now.
-Probably Plekanec's worst game of the season. His plays were not working, bad decisions all over, no defensive awareness during certain instances. One bad game though, not worried.

Other than that, first home game after a road trip, I'll take the 2 pts.
