Sens fan coming in peace. Just wanted to say as an outsiders view who doesn't look at "what have you done for me lately?"

Despite this slump, I think you guys will do pretty well in the playoffs. Every team has a slump and you guys have a few games left to break out of it. I haven't been impressed with how hard a team dominated us than you guys during the 2-1 Sens SO win at Scotiabank Place.

Good luck!

Not to go off on a tangent too much, but this is exactly the goal of terrorism, at least in the 9/11 Al-Quaeda/American context and also thanks to the media fear factor. High security in MTL? There are so many other domestic issues that should draw that kind of response apart from what happened in Boston. Not to get political, but there was a recent declaration by a certain head of our Province that IMO is more likely to cause a "situation". That said, not sure if the Boston thing has been confirmed as non-homegrown.

Or maybe the security is for the players in case, in their last home game of the reg. season they go down 3-0 in the 1st. (Not being facetious or making light, just saying, that would be a hostile environment).

I think tonight the Habs come out flying, that's my hope anyway. I will admit I didn't see all of the game against the Pen's, but I did see most of the 1st period, and it looked like a team in disarray. I think this is a confidence thing, and that can be contagious. Doesn't matter who it starts with, it can affect other players, especially in regard to the defensive side of the game.

Playing good defense relies on all players on the ice in the defensive zone to work in sync to neutralize or minimize any offensive threat, and to keep most shots to the outside. When one player starts to struggle, it causes other players to try and compensate, either because they are trying to help the other player out, or because they are not confident that a player is going to make the right choices. That's when the breakdowns begin and everyone seems to get out of sync. The result is a bunch of guys running around all over the place giving up high % scoring chances.

Although i didn't see a whole lot of both the 2nd and 3rd period, the team showed resilience even after being down 4-0 and managed to come score 4 goals, some of which were very nice and flashes of what the team has been doing all year long.

My hope is that this carries over to this evening, I'm sure it helped build some confidence in that dressing room, and Price seemed to settle down considerably compared to the previous games. Maybe that's just what he needed, to come in relief of Buds, in a game that looked to be a blowout, no real pressure to stand on his head, just relax and do the best he can.

We will find out soon enough.

Army being that far along is great news. I know people don't think too highly of him but we need all the options we can get.

Why just Price and not the whole team? They all sucked hairy balls this week.

Price or Budaj didn't make a lick of difference, whoever was in nets got shellacked.

I think you're greatly exaggerating......



No way Lecavalier scores 5, maybe 4...

It would be more like this

St. Louis x 5
Stamkos x 2
Bishop x 2
Pouliot x 2
Vinny x 1

Gio's strength is at getting tips and finding loose pucks in man advantage situations. The problem is that he has very little composure or play making ability with the puck.

As long as the habs can get set up, and gio can park himself around the net, then he can be useful. But he should never really be used on the perimeter.

Having said that, I've seen a decline in the post injury gionta. He's not winning as many puck battles as he used to, and doesn't look as hungry for the puck as he once did.

Good post. Add in the fact that we have other, better players who can fill the role of Garbage man (namely Gallagher).

I'm definitely hoping Armdog can go tonight. With White and Prust out and Moen playing terribly, we have zero grit in our forwards.
