I have to agree with some of the posters here...The Habs dont seem to be able to put teams away especially if they are deemed to be weaker etc... The Habs of old would've had a field day with alot of these so called "weak sisters"
Koivu line is playing like *****. I dunno how many time Pierre Houde said "Ryder perd le disque". I think that Huet wasn't that bad tonight, he made some huge saves. Also, Bob has to put Kovy-Ribs-Zed in his first PP unit.
God, another period to go but still. This offense is limp and lousy. Especially at 5-on-5. So many passengers right now. I sure hope Gainey makes some big changes come off-season. Who cares about games in hand even if Atlanta loses or wins. We'll still be up or down by 1 if we blow this game. Then there's the Isles and Leafs still around and all the teams we could be catching but choose not to. What a joke our play is. Back to back nights doesn't matter. I didn't want to have to get into such a do-or-die series with the Leafs, but these Habs like to make everything hard on themselves.
Gainey needs to mix those lines... Zednik,Perezhogin,Plekanec and Higgins are the only forward who are awake tonight. just make a line out of those 4. Ribeiro is totally useless tonight.. he never looked so slow...
