Glad to see Price making those "big saves" when it counted early on. He looked really focused all throughout the game except at the end when he'd been sleeping for 30 minutes because the Panthers were too busy eating each others *****.
Tonight, the first star is Gomez, even though he didn't play. The guy is probably the funniest player we've had since I started watching hockey.
''My three stars are 1. Scott 2.Carlos 3. Gomez.''
Nice shot at Spacek as well. Gotta love G-Love.
As for the game, great game for Pleks once again, the guy is ready and looks better than ever, albeit in preseason. White is making it really difficult for Martin to cut him, I'd love to have him in the lineup on Oct. 7th.
Great game for my boy Eller as well, he wasn't that noticeable but 3 points isn't too shabby. It's good to see Price get some support from his D and also from the fans. Great confidence-building win.
"Spacek realized we were wearing red jerseys tonight and didn't have 5 turnovers, so he gets a star." - Gomez amazing
No disrespect for Saku Koivu, but he would never say something like that. I love the loosey-goosey attitude of Gomez and our new guys, it could be worth a dozen extra points on the season IMO. Go Habs!
I know it is only preseason but that is how to do it, Price saw mostly easy rubber, got beat on good goals. White is a beast and no reason he can't stay(got some hands too). Lots of puck control and speed by our guys and really no real pressure by Florida.
