Halak didn't start every game in that series and he didn't finish every game he started. Looking back, the Habs were extremely lucky they faced inferior defense and goaltending. The same was true against the Penguins. Eventually the Flyers caught on to Halak and reduced him to he is this season while in the nets for the Blues.

As for the coaching in this game, the Habs outplayed the Bruins in every period. One bad sequence and the Bruins got the goal they needed to win...just barely. Without Thomas, the Bruins would have been routed. This was the Habs team that scared the pants off the Bruins in the opening round of the playoffs.

I think Subban cut himself with a razor to make the high-stick look more realistic. You know, a la wrestling.

That's a laugh. What this league is about is 'what have you done for me lately'. Subban has zero PP goals this year. Weber has 3 hence his PP time. Your rebuttal is awful, but hey, keep talking about last year.

The reason the Habs play such a tight defensive system that can reduce even the Stanley Cup Champion to 18 shots with a depleted defense is mostly because of the coach. Don't get me wrong, I love Emelin, Diaz and Weber, and St-Denis is looking unexpectedly good. But this isn't a great defense this early in their career.

Where Martin failed though is assessing his offensive tools late in the game and on the powerplay. I admit I was mad that Cole wasn't on the ice late in the 2nd when the Habs were on the PP. I wouldn't call myself a supporter of Martin, but it's my opinion some people are exaggerating his flaws. In my mind, he's a good coach.

That said, if he doesn't start using Desharnais, Pacioretty, Cole and Eller more, I'm going to start losing my faith in him.

I guess the Habs have 3 players who have to do all the scoring for us otherwise the ship sinks. Patches, Cole and Gio. Pretty hard to make an impact when so few players contribute on the team.

Seriously, the Habs threw a lot at Thomas. He deserved his shutout but his team didn't.

So everyone was wrong when they watched Halak make amazing save after save? The guy dragged the team through both series. Just because Halak has cooled off doesn't mean this is his "level" just like since Price has looked like **** in the playoffs that doesn't mean that is his "level" either.

The habs outplayed the bruins? You see this is amusing because had the roles been switched it would be said the habs played strategically and JM is a genius. Face it the bruins got to every rebound and kept all of the shots to the outside. Makes an easy night for timmah who is an average goalie with an exceptional troupe of bodies that love to cloud up the shooting lanes. The bruins drop like flies in the crease and make it near impossible to get a shot through. Since the habs had no interest in getting rebounds the outcome was obvious after the first period.

As I predicted some time ago, the Bruins have finally begun to notice Emelin. That's good.

Who are you? IMO you're not worth reading. How come the Bruins announcers kept moaning that the Bruins were having trouble getting the puck out of their zone all game long? Cole in particular was dominating them.

Emelin remains one sexy, sexy tough guy. Sooooo many board crunchers but he doesn't go out of the way to hit guys. Mancrush is growing. Mancrush is growing.

With all due respect for your post, if Thomas is an average goaltender, how do you explain him breaking the record last season for Save %!! Every season, his stats are at or near the top and he's won 2 vezina's past 3 seasons!! I think the man has worked real hard for everything he's ever won!!

you do know we average 1 goal or less once every 3 games to date this season, and 11 times we've been held to 2 or less goals.

We dont win with those stats... As seen tonight, the margin for error is too minimal.

Furthermore... the run you are talking about had A LOT to do with Halak.
Jaro has the ability to go white hot. The problem is, he can follow it up by going cold.

Halak was the reason we got by Washington, AND Pittsburgh.

These games are far too frequent. I dont think it's a scorer as much as it is we need better presence in the slot. Way too many turnovers happening in the slot. Not enough shots in danger zones. I read a post somewhere alluding to missing AK46... Something is not entirely clicking. We are too easy to shut down.

Average goalie with an exceptional troupe of bodies that drops in the slot. Countless times I watch the bruins dive into the crease blocking good shots and allowing perimetre shots. Never seen a goalie with such terrible rebound control. I really don't give a **** how hard he has worked that has nothing to do with any of this.

you are wrong. go back a few pages, most of our shots were on the inside, not the outside.

yeah, that's their system and they executed it to perfection. you are correct to say that not many of the shots were dangerous, but they were not from the outside. but still, timmah did have a good night and we shouldn't take anything away from his performance.

that's a matter of opinion i suppose but i will simply say that they got to the rebounds before we did. the habs buzzed timmah's net more than they buzzed ours.

Bruins fan here, in war and peace. ;-)

Habs speed suffocates the Bruins. Takes away space & time, got the better of the territorial game. B's were able to compensate somewhat with strength in the puck battles, generally sound positional defense, and of course Thomas, but not by much.

This was a hard-hitting yet drama-free game (at least on the ice!), unusual by Mtl-Bos standards, and perhaps a harbinger of things to come. It's always a fascinating encounter, between these two. The teams are built off different templates, but they're becoming more like each other as time goes on, as Habs add muscle and B's add speed. In a weird way, the teams are made stronger by the other's existence.

I don't look forward to the day Markov returns.
