Rookie goalies that comes to replace an injured goalie have a history of playing very very well. Dryden, Roy, Lalime in Pittsburgh, Ward in the playoffs last year...let's hope Halak can repeat history!
Since when is MTL a dump and chase team? MTL is supposed to be a speed team. I cannot believe this dump and chase garbage I see every night.
SPECIAL NEWS ALERT: Dump and Chase rarely works effectively in the new NHL.
Well, that's not true! Dump and chase works very well against the Montreal defence which always waits one second or so after the dump in before turning to go get the puck. Then, the D who gets to it first waits another second to make a play, by which time......TURNOVER.
The Habs, on the other hand, too often play a Dump and NOT Chase style.
