By the way, these are our faceoff averages for the year:

Plekanec - 50.4% Desharnais - 50.2% Eller - 49.0% Halpern - 56.1%

Another issue that's not really the weakness it was hyped up to be.

It depends on the games we play.

Actually we would be in second place if that were to happen (assuming it was regulation win for Ottawa) since Boston plays Ottawa in one of those games.

If we win Saturday, Boston needs at least 3 points in their final two games to win the division. If they lose either against Washington or Ottawa in regulation, we finish 2nd.

Much better game overall (I couldn't watch the NJ game though). We had a few bounces going our way but hey, last time Pacioretty had bounces going his way, he went absolutely red hot. Just in time, baby.

A quick look at the standings would tell you all of this, though.

I hope we beat Toronto in regulation Saturday, and Boston only wins 1 of their two finals games...hoping for 2nd place. Otherwise, bring on the Leafs!

Liked what I saw from Tinordi and Price tonight, Price just seemed way more confident tonight and if not for the terrible defensive blunders probably would have had a shutout. I liked Tinordi, he looked like a veteran for tonight at least. He should have been here since Emelins injury and I feel that his days in Hamilton are over. Good skater for a man of his size and a decent first pass should be enough to keep him in the lineup.

I would also sit down Boullion for the TO game and give his spot to Beaulieu.

It's because we're in the same division as Boston. Automatically lowers our faceoff% a lot as we seem to lose 100% of faceoffs against them every game.

As usual, after a win I don't come to the board right away as a coping mechanism so I'll take a crack at it then go in reverse order seeing what everyone thought until I come to an unreasonable post

- I was defending Boullion prior to the game and while I still think he moved it alright on the PP, I wanted to smash his head in most of the game. On further review, pass was on Cube's skate blade, but still, wtf, was so mad. And the second goal - why do all other teams fill their net with three D in that situation while we just stand around and watch. GET YOUR BODY ON THE GOAL LINE. Not a good game by him at times, but again, I don't know if LJV wouldn't have made more mistakes.

- Price was awesome. I don't think anyone disagrees that this was the Price we remember, even better than in tampa IMO. Hope that it's the way he plays going forward.

- Atta boy Tinner (à la PK)! Keep him in. I'm sure he'll make the odd mistake, but more than makes up for it. On that partial 2 on 1, he not only took the man out, but got his stick in the way to block a pass. On the PK, he got it behind the net and with lots of pressure flipped it out - something our vets fail to do time and time again, rather weakly pushing it to the point and the opposing D man. Physicality was good - exactly the right timing. You can differentiate knowledgeable hockey fans by those who know what it means to take a hit to make the play. Jack Edwards, for e.g., will call any hit on an opposing player monstrous and devastating while that player effectively takes a bruin out of the play while getting it to a forward rushing up. Takes effort and sacrifice. Tinordi did that all game.

- Bourque played his best game since back. I still think he bobbles the puck compared to the silky smooth guy I used to see with the Flames (no really, he could handle a puck), but he got it deep, forechecked hard, and most of all, HE SCORED! Great finish on that play too. My heart sank when Chucky's deke got picked off, then scramble, then reaction by Habs players

- Ryder has become useless again. All that talk about winning the trade seems so far away now. He better pick it up cuz for a fast team, he looks like he's dragging a hippo. Also can't make any smart plays with the puck ATM to make up for it.

- Much better game by Pleky, but I wonder what Michel Bergeron is thinking. Of course, shot is better than a maybe pass, but it was FINALLY a wide open Gio (who was playing well). Not a biggie, just funny that Pleks actually NEVER passes on 2 on 1s anymore even after being admonished by Bergy.

- I know people will , but I thought Chucky was off. Battled hard, as always, but in terms of execution, thought he had a sub par game in one where he could have dominated. His awareness was also a bit off, like when Subban was rushing up the ice tapping his stick and chucky tried to do a toe drag in front of Buff. Just an example of a bunch of missed passes, flubs (whiffed on a shot), etc. Just pointing it out cuz it's not fair to only point out everyone but the golden child. Gally gets it occasionally, so just being fair.

- It seems we can only score on 5 on 3s. The PP otherwise has too much pressure on Markov and Subban and when they send it to the guy on the halfboards (sooooo predictable), we then just become stagnant. Look at Toronto who goes cross crease for the open man regularly and even 5 on 5. We have no ability to do that. Every team seems to adjust their PK so that it looks identical. Passes into the slot seem pointless - we just don't open up the opposing D. Gotta fix.

- Wanted to shove DD through a wall the whole game for his paaaaathetic passes. So soft, just coughing them up. Then lucky break and well, seems like all of a sudden he played the last 10 minutes much better. Then one of Patch's innocent shots benefitted from Pavelec not giving a **** and so I hope for both their sakes, this means opening a can of goals. Patches had a great game anyway, just no support. I think Gally's (also lucky) goal that exemplified Gretzky's famous quote might also have been a result of a manque de concentration from Pavelec, but whatever, it went in and tied the game.

Just prior to that I was asking my friend when the last time we scored off a shot was (wrister or slapshot from outside the crease and not a Subban blast), the way every NHL team does regularly. Couldn't remember. This one technically counted, but seriously, we need to "snipe" a little more (which really means shoot like NHLers).

- Gorges played well. I've been on his case, but he held himself up to the std he set. PK was dancing towards the end and it's really sad that we don't make the most of these opportunities. He's forced to pass to someone who just can't score and/or they don't give it back to him when he's in great position to score.

- Doesn't seem like we're missing Moen, although I'm sure he'll draw back in at some point. Armdog does a good job of finishing his checks and keeping the puck deep and he's an MT lapdog so it's cool, he'll stay. Lately, Dumont would have been more useful than Ryder - I'm dead serious. That said, when Ryder gets his chances, I think (hope) he'll prove his worth.

---

AC comments:

- WTF is wrong with everyone not caring if we come second? They want to rest everyone and Gauthier being a dick basically saying Markov is a no-compete lazy guy at heart (clearly cuz he's Russian.)

Langdeau was the only one who seemed to get it. He kept prodding everyone about 2nd being better than 4th, which it freaking is, by a LOT! Asking Carbo what he'd rather have and Carbo saying it's better that they be ready for game 1.

Reason?: What if Toronto sends their goons/plays physical on Saturday risking injuring players?
Do they know who we will be playing in a much tougher 7 game series, basically without question, if we do not get an ROW (to be safe and still not a guarantee) on Sat?

So shy away from playing a team cuz they might injure you in one game. Uh, why not avoid them in the first round by lining your cards up for a good possibility that Boston loses to one of Wash/Ott in a back to back???

We must win. If they play physical, just keep a cool head, that's all. Prust, you're no allowed to fight, that's all. Just beat them. Someone made a good point (might have been that dumb dumb head Gauthier) that if they lose to Toronto, it'll leave a bad taste in their mouths - which is true. Oh and also we'll be playing them the next game, and the game after and again, and so on (doubt Boston drops their two).

At least the AC crowd is impressed with Eller and considers him our best center, while considering Pleky a versatile one. They seemed dejected when they found out it was Pacioretty's goal (as if DD did anything on that play).

Just for the tally - Price stole this one for us...

If Montreal beats Toronto and Ottawa wins twice in regulation, then Montreal plays one of the NY teams.

Toronto can not be lower than 6th.

Ottawa with 2 wins (1 of the wins will be to Boston) will be in 5th.

Montreal with win and 1 Boston regulation loss gives Montreal 2nd place, Boston 4th place.

Pittsburgh - Isles/Rangers
Montreal - Isles/Rangers
Washington - Leafs
Boston - Senators.

We need a gif of that sequence. Man PK has superswag.

That was pure awesome! It was even better the way the camera was fixed, with him coming in from off screen. I'm sure all of us were like "OMG NO, broken stick we're screwed, get another one!", then he pulls it off. Has to be on highlight reels on NHL.com with a stupid tagline. BTW, great play by Patch there to hold on to it and make the play until Subban had time.

He still made terrible passes on the PP, and seemed ineffective overall besides the 5 on 3.

He did win faceoffs, but not many of them turned into offensive opportunities. I'm glad he scored and hoping he steps his game up because I'm really rooting for him and I was trying to detract the haters at the beginning of the season, but he hasn't made me look very good this year.
I'm not at all mad that he scored, I'm very happy in hopes that it will get him back to his old game. He looked very good after the goal, even...backcheckin. But what DD (haha) said, prior to that he was his usual ineffective self.

Pfft. Eller is the one who brings the puck up ice, battles really hard cuz he has the frame and sets up a ton of plays. Sometimes the secondary assist is a harder play than the primary just FYI and it goes both ways in terms of Chucky's production. Eller is awesome.

Good luck to you guys, I feel we both our teams have the top two fan bases in the league.
I'm just glad that it wasn't us who eliminated you (you were beating us at the time you got eliminated). Great fans and I really hope to see playoffs from you guys.

Maybe we could rest a couple of players too. Especially Markov and Prust.
Ya, we're not Anaheim and they a) haven't had to fix stuff (we still do) and b) don't have to play their bête noire (Toronto). I do realize some guys need a rest, so I would not mind Dumont in for Prust actually, but sadly we can't win this without Markov. I really wouldn't trust Beaulieu to deliver in this game. In for Cube, fine. In for Markov, nah, we need him. Markov looked a little more energetic than last game. I don't know what his recharge meter looks like so does 2 days vs 5 days make a world of a difference? Maybe, probably, but I don't see us winning without him and I still wan't 2nd badly.

Kudos for not telling me about my stupidity after that one... ouch.

HEY SHUT UP! They're a different breed I tell ya...
Haha, having moved to Ontario since awhile now, I've met a lot of Habs fans native to the area and they're awesome. Though that's why my sig is written as it is, just for clarification that I'm a gars de chez nous. (Though, again, Ontario Habs fans and I'm sure from elsewhere are terrific!). I think all of us living in Ontario are far more concerned with the Toronto situation than people in MTL. I go home often and most of my friends don't have the same intensity of hatred because they don't have many friends who are leaf fans, haven't been exposed to the circus of leafs fandom, haven't had to spar on a daily basis with them. I can't tell you how many official functions I've been to where in a very important, completely non-hockey-related speech, someone will say "**** the Habs". Then again, whenever I get a chance to speak in a similar situation (given everyone knows my colours), I make sure to return the favour.

Much appreciated! Glad that everyone seems to have picked up the same elements from last night. The DD "bashing"/misinterpreting I expect will last a little while longer until we devolve into Price discussions and how it was "only ONE game!". Patofqc seems to have come out of the woodwork, which normally happens when Price wins a game for us. He's our groundhog. That's how you KNOW Price won a game for us

It's even more sad because if I just looked at your name I would've known you're a Habs fan! I'm in my second year of University, but luckily today is my last exam of the semester so I won't berate you anymore! Congrats on finishing University!

Do I ever feel for you! Watching every game for the Habs is a stress-affair for me. The playoffs are a borderline heart-attack. If I live in a city FULL of the fans of the team we are currently facing in a 7-game series... I'm not sure I'd make it out alive!

If we play the Leafs, this series will either be extremely painful for you if we lose or euphoric if we win! For your sake, I hope the Habs take it I'm thinking you may want to lock yourself up with fellow Habs fans and resist going out into the real world for the next two weeks
