Continuing with the trend of a different person stepping up for each win, today was Carey Price's turn.
Devils had some really good gap control on the habs today, so it was almost impossible to get the speed game going. But the habs also did a good enough job in their end, and Price was there to cover up some mistakes.
Tonight was no masterpiece, but good teams find a way to win even when they are not at their best. Last season, this would have been a loss.
Wisdom is this.
Well, sleeping on the couch after trying to mount my wife like a wild bronco while swinging my Habs jersey in the air. YEEEEHAAAAAAAAAA!!!! She was sound alseep of course...
Good teams find a way to win. Someone always seems to step up.
Tinordi is a great skater for a kid his size. He looked very comfortable out there. He will be a regular come playoff time. He is about ready.
Remember guys, next time some mouthbreather says Price doesn't steal game, bring up this very game.
Thing is, this is one of hundreds of games where he's won it for us, but people forget fast. He will always receive the same criticism.
Very happy with this win. I don't care if they are boring, it just means we aren't getting pwned by the other team. Although this one was thanks to Carey, there were some good D plays and I'm super impressed with our prospects. Aside from Chucky and Gally, Dumont and Tinordi have shown us how good our future will be (I'm not lumping Eller into prospects).
The only person I thought struggled was Markov, but not a big deal.
Forgot to add: IMO Subban's best game yet. He honestly should win the Norris, but people just cannot see how he's become such a great all-round D. Would much rather have him than Chara or Letang. And thus...I am very happy.
