I thought Koivu' s play in overtime along with playing very well in regulation should granted him that third star (not that Kovalev didn't deserve it because he also played great).

-Winning the draw in our own zone when Tampa's most dangerous players are on the ice
-Gaining the zone beautifully by passing it to Plekanec on the opposite side of the ice (freezing all four bolts at the blue-line looking all flat-footed)
-Finally, the goal (everyone knows how that went)

So, anyone still doubting we should re-sign Tanguay?

I honestly felt he made some really tough saves, and was really unlucky on the two that went in. Its tough to get no action, then get a few pucks thrown at you.

If there was anything negative, I'll still have to pick on Hamrlik and his inability to clear the defensive zone, or hit the ****ing net with his shot.

Koivu has a ways to go before he gets in my good books, he was a no-show for far too long.
I'm sure he'll try harder for you down the stretch and in the playoffs.

Good win, they looked really nervous after that second crappy goal. Price either needs to hang a rabbits foot off his pads or see a voodoo doctor. Any time a weak goal(regardless of redirects) goes it the tires deflate on our weak minded team. Put they played a solid 50+ minutes of hockey and kaptain klutch is godly!

We finally looked everything except what Carbo and Benoit Brunet hope for. We passed the puck, made fancy plays and kept control of the puck instead of dumping it...

Some of you will never be happy

The Habs DOMINATED Tbay for the entire game. Both Tbay goals were rather lucky. Price was looking to cover up on the first one but didn't see it in the scrum, while Komi whiffed on a clearing attempt in the crease. The second goal was deflected twice off of an uncontested point shot because of a weak clearing attempt.

Quit with the "Price almost lost it for us" arguments.

The PP moved the puck well all night AGAIN with Tanguay/Kovy/Koivu, and those of you bashing Schneider are just plain retarded. WE NEED THAT BIG SHOT TO ADD TO THE PP THREAT. This was a great addition by Gainey.

How does Rick Tocchet ***** about the penalties? The Bolts were outshot 24-8 at one point, and it seemed the Habs hemmed in the Tampa d-men for 20-30 seconds at a time in the offensive zone regularly. Anyone notice a higher frequency of the 2 man forecheck? I sure noticed.

We kept two of the most notorious "Habs killers" in check (St. Louis / Lecavalier - whom I dream will both one day suit up for us).

Continued performances like this by our Habs and things will be shaping up nicely for the playoff run..............

A note on being chased by Florida -- Montreal has a 2-point lead, a game in hand, and the tiebreaker (more wins). At this point of the season, that's quite a bit to overcome.

To make the playoffs, Florida needs to finish ahead on points -- that means at least one more win and one more OTL than the Canadiens in their remaining 7 games -- and that's if the Habs lose that game in hand. If Montreal does win that extra game, then Florida needs to beat them by five points in seven games.

It's doable if the Habs falter, but it's in the Habs' hands, now. If they keep winning Florida is just going to run out of racetrack.

For example, if Montreal goes 3-5 over the rest of the season(possible, but certainly disappointing), then Florida can only make the playoffs with a 4-2-1 or better result -- fairly tough sledding already. Montreal going a mere.500 (4-4, or even 3-2-2) forces Florida to hit 5-1-1 or better to make it. If Montreal manages to go 5-3, or 4-2-2, then Florida somehow has to pull off 6-0-1.

this is what happens when one team is a step behind the other team for almost the entire night. The lightning looked like the habs when they did their western conference road trip. Guess what, the habs were taking a ton of penalties back then too.

Tocchet just needs to review the game when he is in a calm state, and he will see that their problems ran much deeper than any supposed bad officiating.

The "What to do to the next fan who fears facing Montreal in round 1" thread definitely qualifies here... wow. Whatever it takes to rally up the courage to face the inevitable.

Habs played a great game. That said this game had no buisness going into overtime or even a one goal game. The Habs wasted too many excellent chances. Guys are still having problems hitting the net.

You should never go by the "on paper" remaining schedules, however:

To add to your analysis - have you looked at the Rangers remaining schedule? IT IS BRUTAL!
Pitt, Jersey, Carolina, Bruins, Habs, Philly X 2
3 at home, 4 away
We have a game in hand

The Rags need to be as desperate as we are!
Florida might get in ahead of them, as could Buffalo if they get a lift from the return of Miller............ OH THE DRAMA!

Koivus celebration at the end looked exactly like that picture where they came back against the Rangers last year.
Overall great game, team looked dominant out there. Heres to a strong stretch run.
