The last game against the Blues in 2012 was both brutal and beautiful. Brutal because we were totally dominated; beautiful because the Blues played an almost perfect game of puck-possession and speed. Who cared -- the Habs were out of the playoffs anyway so why not appreciate the other guy's skill.
Halak stepped up for that game, he'll probably step up again tomorrow. Habs only chance is to play a more West Conference style of tighter, bigger defense and wait for mistakes. Boring but effective against the Blues' strong D.
I always thought of steen from his days in toronto as a bit of an underachiever given his skill set, but this year he's got 18 points in 12 games with 12 goals. Maybe he's making up for all those years..... Wow
All that while playing for a Hitchcock team, no less
