The Canes always beating us is like some strange revenge for all the years we seemingly owned the Whalers. But the people of Hartford don't benefit somehow. They could be worst team in the league and still beat us. In fact, last time they were near the bottom (02-03) is also the last time they lost to us at MTL in regulation (following a hilariously awful 7-3 thrashing in November I recall). It's maddening, because we're usually the better team standings-wise. Think of all the points we've thrown away on the Southeast Div. this year, so far it's a 3-4 mark which is inexcusable.

Looks like last night's game, only Carolina seems faster than Buffalo and more willing to play defense. Still a chance for us to come back of course.

I have never been a fan but Latendresse has been playing well lately. I think he has found his niche (comfort zone). Playing on a third line with Lapierre Kostopoulos. He's playing with energy and determination! Hope he can continue the hard work.

first period was badbut the game is still close. And stall needs to get called for his diving once in a while just to teach him he cant get away with it.

I usually dont call out guys who dive, but Staal is a BIG boy. There is no way he should be falling down so easily. Its getting ridiculous.

Nice chance at the end forces a PP to start the 2nd. But it seems to me whenever the Habs get those jam-ups in front, they never put the puck in. It always somehow stays out. The Habs bury their scoring chances a lot less frequently than say, Boston (who is clearly not going to be caught unless they fall apart). Boston actually take care of easy teams, currently leading St. Louis 5-3 after two. If only this team had the same level of focus. But apparently Boston has a full game per game better offensive arsenal

Why didn't Lang passed to Dagos? He was wide open!

Wow I just watched (most of) the first period and came to the computer to find out why Tanguay wasn't in the lineup tonight.

Apparently he is?

Nice shift to end by Begin, Lapierre Kostopoulos and then by Tanguay and Lang.

Plekanec is downright brutal out there though, and I'd say since Begin has came back in the lineup, I prefer him than Kostopoulos. TK seems to be playing like if he thinks he's a skilled player lately. Begin is doing what TKO was doing at the beginning of the year.

Hard period for Plekanec, Maxwell, Sergei, Hamrlik and Bouillon. D'agostini had a so-so period as well, but he was working out there and was better in the last 10 minutes.

We have great energy guys. And we are missing 3 of our best offensive tools (Koivu, AK46, Chris Higgins). Win tonight guys and I'll be more than pleased.

A pretty sluggish start imo. The fourth line was basically the only one to sustain any pressure. The top line appeared to take the first period off. Price looks shaky which is understandable but he has to play his first game back at some point.

Breezy and Bouillon must go. One of the two seems always on the ice when there is a breakdown which tends to lead to goals.
