I guess we'll see what type of team the Habs are really made of tonight. That Ottawa Sun cover needs to be posted in the room and that alone should make every Habs player want to go through a Sens player tonight and the rest of this series.
If the Habs don't come out playing very angry tonight I'll be very disappointed.
Going to the game tonight. Really hope our boys pick it up. Our game reminded me of years ago when we played ultra defensive against caps/pens. We can't allow ourselves to do all those perimiter shots we did last night.
I'd like us to stop taking bad shots. We are wasting scoring opportunities by flipping the puck at Anderson. Half the time he's not even producing rebounds. We are carrying play in their zone but are taking such weak shots on net. I'd rather continue to grind them and look for quality chances and in the meantime prevent some of their transition.
Moen and White need to step it up and actually provoke something for once!
The rest of the veterans were also invisible last night!
I thought Moen, White and Prust were playing awesome the first half of the game yesterday, line was playing very physical and was tiring out the Sens D. Obviously they got out of a rhythm once we were on the PP for a good portion of the second period.
We basically had three players who showed up last night: PK, Bourque and Gallagher. Others like Plecks, Gally, Pacioretty were just average at best.
Some real lows from last night:
Diaz- looked completely lost. Looked like a borderline NHL player at best.
Desharnais- totally over matched.
Markov- Too slow. He is essentially our version of Sergei Gonchar ( a PP specialist at best)
Ryder - invisible
We don't need to do anything different. We outplayed them, outshot them and outskated them. Only thing we need is goalie that can make a key save here and there. Last night if Carey is just a little above average we win the game easy without even blinking.
