Either that, or he's learning from experience. He saw how tough strong forecheck was to deal with against a team that has the horses to do it (TB, MTL) and TB has a weaker defense than Montreal.

You must mean Devils, not Rangers because the New York team lost. Although there were three points given out in that game.

I love watching these games with my dad. He doesn't have a favourite team, he just enjoys watching hockey and what he calls "good players". He's actually pretty unbiased as far as I can tell.

You know who his favourite player to watch on the Canadiens is? Alex Kovalev

Solid win. Dominated the game. It would have been a shame to lose that one.

Don't know if it's been mentioned, but Carbonneau had Streit play in place of Samsonov late in the 3rd period.

I've been critical of Streit, but he's been very good as a kind of rover (maraudeur?). I actually think he's more valuable as the 12th forward and 7th D because he can be used in so many different situations. Definitely one of the bright spots this year. Also someone who deserves to be in the line-up every game.

Kovalev great game, 3pts (second 3pts game of him this season).


Plekanec stand in the slot for the rebond for once he can finish, was about time.


One more point for Koivu and he's already at 40pts.

23-11-5

Next game against Caps, full team effort of 60mins like today and the habs will own.

BTW; I notice that, I didn't miss any game of the Habs this season. I'm on pace for 82 games
It didn't hit Ryder. He got his stick on it--you know, BATON.

Solid game by the habs. The habs controlled the game and played well. I am impressed with Mark Streit for a while now. He is versatile in that he can play 7th d or on the 4th line as has been mentioned. His game is simple and effective.

Tonight I thought Kovalev and Plekanec looked great. It was nice to see these guys going. Samsonov looked alright as well. Koivu and Higgins were work horses as usual.

Agree. IMO he's a better utility player than Dandenault.

All 5 goals were by players on the 1st 2 lines. That's encouraging.

Dandenault's a better defenseman than Streit, but Streit is better up front. Streit is definitely better value, but I wouldn't say straight up better.

Streit makes better passes and has a much better shot.

Indeed, Streit gets bonus points from being a PP point man -- pretty good for a second unit point man, actually. Not a lot of teams have that luxury.

You might not be crying, but you are sure as hell whinning.!! Garbage goal, what is a garbage goal? Don't they all count. Of course that EN goal by Higgins was a masterpiece of fine play. Latendresse has 8 goals, look at the replays, and see how of many the goals were finesse plays. They all help the team to win, so, who cares how they go in the net. Did you ever stop to think that if the puck did not touch Ryder's stick, the goalie may have stopped it. At the end of the season there are no asterisks by any goals depicting how the goal was scored. It does not matter how the goals go in, or who scores the goals, if you are a true fan of your team. Are you???

oh yeah,

anyways I am happy the line worked tonight, I think that the diference tonight is that all 3 moved better keeping a distance between them, they use to be to much off position, it happened tonight too though, like sammy kovy and pleks, all 3 in the same corner and it wasn't even a pp.

Hopefully in next games they keep skating like they dido tonight

That 5-2 win over Buffalo or the 2-1 OT win over Buffalo were better IMO.

On the "how will Carbo use Streit next" watch: Streit subbing in for Samsonov to protect the lead at the end of the game. Carbo trusts him, obviously.
Great post, great observation, hadn't noticed.

and agree, the crowd was LOUD tonight. Much more than most games. The game was exciting , not many powerplay, fast, great hockey.

Some Streit talk, of course I'm gonna partake...

There was a first tonight. He flattened someone. Behind the net toward the corner, good simple hit, the guy didn't FLY but he fell. Usually when he throws his little body at people he kinda just bounces off them (Let's face it, he's alot more likely to win the Lady Bing than he is to win Checker Of The Year...It's just not in his toolbox.) but I always give him points for trying. Tonight, though, he actually completed a hit.

And the winds of popularity are starting to sail for Das Mannschaftfuhrer. The media are starting to discover the guy. Usually, they only ask him insipid questions they'd ask anybody and he answers, well, what everybody else answers. but Martin McGuire of CKAC asked him about the "losing streak" and he went passionately & long about pride, tradition and about how they had to win.

McGuire said, and rightfully so, that Streit was speaking like somebody who wore a letter.

And who knows? He might show himself worthy of a letter next year or the one after that if he keeps improving and we lose a few of our "Obligatory" lettered names (e.g. Craig Rivet) It's clear Carbonneau and the whole organization likes the guy, what's there not to like about Mark Streit from a hockey or a corporate stand point?

He's clean cut, nice, cerebral, billingual (Quinilingual, actually), does what he's ask to do, and for now he's cheap. And all he asks for is to play. He's on his way to play the most he ever played in a year in league play, Swiss seasons last 40 games or so. And that his AHL outpost is to be in Zurich. Nothing bad there.

My faith in and allegiance to the Zurich Lion remains as strong as ever. This man could be a gear on a Stanley Cup winning squad.
