You guys are being blinded by the score so far. Sure we're playing better, but the point is, the Plekanec line is still not giving a great effort consistently.
But hey... I'm often focussing on negatives. I still think they'll put it together sooner than later. But right now it's not going good for them.
It's the first period and you're talking like it's the end of the game... You can't give your full effort all the time... It's just a cliché... You have ups and downs... Great players have more good days than bad days... I completely understand your point of noticing what wasn't good enough for the Habs during the 1st but the game is played with 2 teams on the ice therefore there's a lot of things you don't have control on.
