How did S. Kostitsyn play today?

How did he manage to do in his first game back? I saw the stats but other then that?

His line was invisible tonight, but he was probably the best player out of it. He had a good scoring chance on a breakaway. But Andrei is still in a deep, deep sleep, and that doesn't help anybody who plays with him.

He played really well, imo. I noticed in one shift he was trying to do too much as he had collapsed back around and behind the net like a centre would do, taking the spot of Plekanec.

I think he'll be up for the rest of the season, but that could be me.

He was ok.

Got a breakaway but shoot wide.

The line didnt do anything good but i thought he was the best player of that line.

I think that line will start clicking soon. Although they didn't have an amazing game, they had some chances.

If Gainey keeps them together, they'll become a good line imo.

I saw 2 really hard hits from Andrei though. I watched the game and canadiens express after to check who did those 2 hits and it was Andrei. You know those kind of plays you see for a second on the corner of the screen? Just saying he was not a real non factor because those hits slow a player down for a while. He can be dirty at times.

I'd look into putting Higgins on the line instead of Sergei, but Gainey will likely give Sergei some time to get his NHL game back together. If the line stays cold for another 2 games, you will likely see Sergei back in Hamilton and Higgins on the second line, with Stewart back on the fourth.

I would rather put Andrei on the pressbox and dress Stewart.

I'd rather put Breezy in the pressbox, put Dandy on D and dress Stewart.

I was impressed with Sergei's backchecking. That was new. At least 4-5 times he got back and deflected or intercepted passes from Atlanta. It was great work.

The line itself wasn't working, but I think Plekanec and Andrei just had off nights. Given lines 1 and 3 seem good, I'd give this trio another turn.

No, no we do not. Worst case, make Markov play two minutes. Sergei can play the point on wave #2 as well.

Long term we may need a secondary QB, but for this year, it is not worse the constant Brisebois-ian gaffes.

They had some chances and played pretty hard. I don't think Benoit Brunet was of the same opinion... "E ayoyoyoye, E cé juste pas acceptable, E le trio de Lapierre aurait été le meilleur E avec plus de temps de E glace, E Patrice a joué E tout un E match, E ayoyoyoye, Serge, E un autre revirement, E André, E, cé juste pas acceptable, E, cé inconcevenable, E, Guillaume joue tout un E tout un match E, le 4e E trio, E cé dememe qui faut joué, E, Higgins yé pourri sur le 2e trio, E mais cé tout un joueur sur le 4e E trio., André cé juste pas acceptable E."

Benoit Brunet can blow it out his ass. I am so god damn sick of that guy.

The Plek line wasn't bad at all. If you compare them to the Koivu line, then yes, they were "bad". They didn't spend much time in their own zone and only got scored on because Brisebois is as soft as butter and Pleky coughed it up. The Lapierre or Metro lines weren't any better last night.

You can tell Andrei is in a major sophomore funk though, but he'll come out of it.

Sergei was skating, which is exactly what he needs to do. That was his problem this whole year, he wasn't skating. Last year he was flying all over the ice. If he keeps doing that this line will be good. They might be prone to getting trapped in their zone, but if they avoid that they can succeed.

Too be honest I really liked Higgins with Metropolit, it is the 4th line but Higgins will see tons of ice time on the PK which he was awesome on yesterday. Our players played well last night because they had assigned roles, we had two scoring lines, a grind line and a checking line and it worked out perfect. Give the Kost bro's and Plekanec a couple games to gel and i'm sure those 3 will click.

I enjoyed his explanation of the 3 on 1 goal. He was clearly analyzing on the fly and first excused Birsebois's blown pinch, saying the guy made exactly the right play.

Then he realized it was Latendresse who blew covering for Brisebois and you could hear how much it pained him to say it was Lats fault.

Of course, regardless of this, in the end, they all had a great game and the Kostitsyn's sucked. But yeah.

I invented a new drinking game to help people stop drinking. Take a shot everytime Benoit Brunet say something good about André.

I prefer my current game... Take a drink everytime he says "ee" as filler between words.

*is drunk for days after Habs games*

LOL

I thought Sergei had a good game. Best player on his line without a doubt.

Andrei lacks confidence I think. His stick his too tight in his hands. He can't control the puck like he can, and he's not passing as he should. But it will all comeback...

And I liked Sergei. It's incredible to see how much the puck stays on his stick when he's in control! It's like it is glued on it!

Sergei was on and off all night. At times, he looked good, but at other times he looked like he forgot how to play his position. Basically, same ol', same ol'...

Sergei Kostitsyn was pretty good. Like most of you have said, he was probably the best player on his line... by far.

On the other hand, Andrei Kostitsyn is just plain terrible... Seemed emotionless out there, no vision, no effort... What happened to that guy serioulsy ?! I mean his brother came back... he's suppose to show at least emotions that may indicates that he's happy, but nothing, zero...

And Tomas, well... too inconsistent...once again unfortunately...
