I don't think you'll find my name there. But when I got home from work and learned Patch and Gionta were out also, I thought we were done.

It was to be expected considering how bad his injury was.. But I agree, Karlsson was clearly the best defenseman in the league before he got injured..

Should Tinordi be moved to the 2nd pairing? He has played well in the past 4 games... (2 in regular season and 2 in the playoffs)

He should not have been sent back to Hamilton.

Do you think Bourque is okay?

How about Bouillon?

Not sure what is their definition of a giveaway but with mine Karlsson had at least a couple of obvious ones.

Just got back from the game. Wow. By the way, Tinordi is a beast. This kid is ready. At one point Neil was pushing Ryder around...Tinordi just steps in and Neil backs down. Just wow.

Bourque, Price and the Kids (Gallagher, Galchenyuk and Tinordi) with an honorable mention to Prust and Plekanec (who is just a beast defensively).

I think White is starting to find his game...that is, learning how to play on the line and not crossing it.

I told someone this morning Price needs something to happen to really get him on the edge. Get involved in a little fight, maybe a little controversial incident... I don't know, something needed to happen for him to get on the edge... and I really believe that would turn his game around.

I think that "edge" was chipping his teeth. I know it sounds silly as hell... but he looked pretty pissed off. Afterwards, he was just spectacular. It helps they were leading 1-0 at that point. It helps ALOT. I think we would have been talking about a different game if Sens took the lead. I know it's silly.. but it's the little things. Carey's play of late is not an issue of technique, it's mental... I think it helped alot..

This game was huge for him. He was just spectacular.

Now someone else who was spectacular? Ryan *** White. He really... really got under Neil's skin it seemed... among other players. Just freaking great to see. His chirping at the bench was terrific.

Great to see Player 31 and Player 53 tonight with HUGE games.
Player 61 also had a strong game which is good since he had an awful one last night.

Keep in mind, was Karlsson playing overseas? A lot of the players that played during the lockout looked better than the players that did not. It took awhile for many players to get back to game shape and timing. Karlsson is better than he is playing right now but also I always believed he is easily intimidated if you hit him unlike Subban who will take a hit to make a play.

I couldn't believe how much we were hitting them. Consistently and all over the ice. And I love how miserable we're making Karlsson's life. I'm sure the injury is bugging him but he really looks like he's off his game.

Seeing Price bounce back with a great game was awesome but I thought our energy players were a big difference as well. Moen, White, Prust, Dumont, Halpern were all excellent.

On the negative side, I've stayed off the DD-bashing bandwagon most of the year but he has been abysmal in both games. He needs to find a way to be effective, especially with Eller out.

With everyone, including Bourque, throwing the body around, the Sens must be a little stunned at the physicality being thrown at them by a small Habs team and, in particular, at Karlsson. There was a lot of hitting on some of their star players tonight. Karlsson and Alfredsson got rocked hard. Most importantly, no one backed from the scrums. Price was spectacular. Every single player had a role to play in this win. Great game by the Habs.

My one gripe (I know, I know) is that we let the sens just park their rear on our doorstep.

All I saw diaz do was attempt to disrupt sticks.

These are how tips, screens and rebounds are created, weak defensive coverage.

Oh well, im sure the boss man is on it.

Good win, Carey Price showing that when he has emotion in his game he's a top 5 goalie.

Secondary players all stepping up.

Gally with hussle that will make him a legend in Montreal in the playoffs to come, this man has hero written all over him.

Chucky with more constant flashes of greatness, some of these moves just make me giggle like a school girl.

Niel putting his eyes to the ground when our 6'6 rookie stepped up to him gives me hopes that my *****ing about crease coverage will be null and void with in a year or two. He's showing lots of late-bloom potential, now I know why timmins wanted him so badly.

I somewhat disagree. I don't think this is entirely injury related. This is Karlsson when he plays a team with a strong neutral zone game, his greatest skill is blunted and a bunch of his limitations are exposed.

He really isn't as amazing in the offensive zone as he is made out to be. A big flaw in his game is that he runs his team's game in the ozone. This results in a lot of set up from the perimeter and an over reliance on point shots from distance. This results in a ton of shots that the opposition finds fairly easy block and less efficient use of the offensive zone.

Contrast to how Subban plays. He let's the forwards do their thing and plays to support them instead of running it himself from a disadvantagous position. This is disadvantage of your best offensive player being a defenseman. He's much better off with Spezza in the lineup so they can run the offensive game through him.


Karlsson is hell on wheels for transition but the Habs (particularly Markov-Subban) are doing great at their own transition and the Send are getting solidly beat in the half court game outside goaltending.

What a game! Just finished rewatching it since I had watched it out at a bar downtown. I'll say I didn't like our chances going into the game with Pacioretty, Eller and Gionta all out, but man what a great character win. I love it!
