Also, I have always been a fan of Perreault. He does have a lot of talent, and I was surprised to see him in the doghouse so much this year. Well, to some extent at least. He is very soft, but Im glad to see that he has taken advantage of his opportunities (now at least).

Anyways, dont get down on your team. The have lost 2 in the past 15 games in regulation. Say what you will, but those numbers are ridiculously good. Good luck in the playoffs!

As for me, Im just going to keep hoping that Buffalo can win out its remaining 6 games and have a chance at the playoffs...
Buffalo gives the Habs fits... and have now what seems like forever(Biron 10W3L)the Sabres are a good young team, and I would love to see them sneak in at the Isles expense!

Guy!, as a goalie, I have noticed this before as well, and especially so on last night's goal. It's not so much Ryder's overall positioning that is baffling, but the position from which he actually shoots, if that makes any sense. It's like his timing is deliberately off a half second. He has a real knack for shooting when goalies are not expecting and for placing it in odd spots.

Last night's top corner goal for instance: it wasn't like it squeaked in the very corner or bounced in off the post. No, it was vaguely in the upper right, a shot most goalies would save with ease had it come from somewhere else. But, you could tell how surprised Biron was and this will give Ryder continued success I think. Unique. Anyway, glad you noted that.

That's because Ryder can get his shot off from any position—standing on one leg, falling backwards, a defenceman draped all over him—it doesn't matter; he can get the shot off. If he's in the slot and Ribs or Koivu have the puck, you as a goalie have to expect that a good shot will be coming your way. That's tough to deal with.

Totally agree GCarb. It's still bizarre to watch though. Even last night, after watching him score all year long, I was still surprised.
