I'm dreading the game against the leafs. Hopefully it's not a repeat of last season.

Who cares... and why did you make this thread AFTER the game? You didn't believe in your Habs? Since the mise o jeu segment was before the game.

Pffff half of them pick the Leafs. It makes me laugh. I really don't think the Leafs can win this game. And if they ante up -- it's not the playoffs yet -- they'll get like 8 penalties and the habs will bury them quickly then Martin will send the 3rd line for the rest of the game.

If somehow we could package him with a goalie this summer and keep both of Moore and Metro, I'd be extatic.
Agreed. I'd rather keep Moore over Lapierre as things stand right now.

The 4th line played fine. Lapierre and Darche play really well together. Both are big bodies who can forecheck and cycle the puck. With Metro, they had some great shifts in the offensive zone cycling and taking the puck to the net, especially in the 2nd period. Lappy should have had a goal tonight. He missed two great chances.

Best 4th line of the season.
Thanks...Just saw the hi-lights on TSN...No mention of Gomez being hurt so that's good news..

That might have been the most technically sound game played by the habs all year.

But I must say that I was shocked at the lack of urgency shown by the rangers in this one. Avery was the only one playing like it was the biggest game of the season. They don't seem like a team too interested in making the playoffs.

Two guys who were struggling a bit before the break and have been playing very well lately are Spacek and Moen. It's awesome finally having a good third line who can score and shutdown other teams.

No kidding. The ice conditions were a disgrace even by MSG standards. It was a match for the pluggers.

This was not a game won by superior goaltending. In fact, Lundqvist lost despite his excellent goaltending. Rather, it was the way the Habs kept pressing the Rangers on both offense and defense. The only this that displeased me is that the Rangers' goal was credited to Avery.

The different on this team IMO, other than the old guys getting some rest during the Olympics, has been Moore's play and his chemistry with Sergei after the break when they moved Moore to center.

Forget the 8 points in 10 games, forget that he has been taking all the important faceoffs after the Olympics break, its the little things that amaze me. His positional play is outstanding, he takes space away from whoever he is on the ice with and despite not being huge is really good on the cycle, keeping the puck on the opposition's end.

Lapierre is not bad, but he is a reckless player, much more suited for the wing. Moore brings such a stabilizing presence its incredible.

Just got back, what a game that was. Habs had a very good representation for a random weeknight, maybe 65% Ranger fans 35% Habs. Overall a great game, important game, and most importantly, fun game to be at.

honestly, if there was a cinderella story in the east...


talkin playoffs baby. more than a round.

of course it's not a lock. just saying that right now they're showing that they are capable of playing consistently well, as much as being healthy. so the possibility is now there.

Rangers played like we did at MSG in the second last game of the 07 season where all we needed was a point to clinch. Dreadful game by them.
