What do you do against the best team in the league? Just nowhere to go with the puck..nothing...but if this is to be the low point of our season, 2 losses..than i aint too worried...gotta be stellar against boston tmr though....huge, huge game.
Every team goes in slumps, Chicago and Anaheim are going through some rough stretches too. Habs have a very small team not built to grind in the playoffs and their finishers are not real good at finishing. I still appreciate this team and their efforts. When I get upset about a loss I think of what I witnessed last season.
Some of you guys must have way too many marbles loose in your heads.
Their goalie was better than Price??
The Pens were dominating???
It took a ridiculous laser of a shot to beat Price in this game. And it came from the best player in the world. Absolutely ZERO goalies in the history of time stop this shot.
The Habs dominated this game through and through. However, the inability to get the bounces go their way (Ryder somehow missing two sure goals was baffling). These games happen. After seeing this, I have no reason to think the Habs can't hang with the best of them.
But the biggest head scratcher is to continually put Bouillon/Gorges on the PP. Wtf is that?? It hasn't done **** all season long and pretty much kills the PP every time it happens.
Hard loss to digest. We played well but we missed some key chances against a top team and they didn't. Atleast it wasn't a easy win for Pitts. This show how we can compete against anybody in the league.
Feel sorry for MAF. Even tough it wasn't is fault at all, I am pretty sure people will blame Gionta if MAF is out for a while
Can someone explain why on earth Georges and Bouillon are on the powerplay, like wtf's the point. Is subban and Markov that exhausted that they cant play for both units, like cmon, a tired Markov and Subban is already better than 2 defensive defensemen.
Even if MT doesn't want to play PK and Markov for the full 2 minutes at least give Emelin a chance over Gorges.
