Agreed, we made it hard on ourselves. It's not just this game, but too many point shots are piercing through. If we're gonna leave the point men room, the least we should do is clear the front of the net. If we won't clear, then we need to pressure more, it's ridiculous at how many shots get through at the point. Like I said, 6 of the last 8 goals have been from the point of those 6, three have been deflected. Hope the coaching staff, the players and Price notice and adjust their games accordingly.

Often he's too deep in his net, I just wish he'd challenge a bit more in those situations.

Of course, the D needs to help him out too. No question about that.
Yah I think he should challenge more as well. One of things I think he needs to work on. I think his puck tracking is fine, but like you said he's a little too deep at times, so even if he sees the puck, he gets caught, regardless.

At least we're mostly limiting those odd-man rushes now that PK has settled down. Picard is playing better too, thought he was brutal vs PHX.

I hope the Habs consider sitting Spacek when Markov is back, but I doubt it happens.

A long shot is Weber gets called up to help our PP, which desperately needs to get going. The Isles PP was all about puck movement, too often our guys are standing still.

What?

If anything he's being more active. He's jumping into plays all the time. He really seems to trust Subban to cover him which is awesome because Subban does the same to him.

The stick-lift and clear with about 2-minutes left in the game by Picard was just awesome. So effortless but so huge.

His first pass is quickly becoming the most consistent one on the team.

"In the third period, John Tavares scored 13 seconds into the frame to bring the Islanders to within one before Halpern scored for the Canadiens to give the Habs a two-goal advantage again.

Islanders defenceman Radek Martinek was given a penalty shot midway through the frame after being tripped on the breakaway, but couldn't beat Carey Price."

If memory serves me right it was Pouliot on Rolloson...unless i missed a minute of play
Holy crap! It's still there! How can they make such a stupid mistake hahaha

Noticed that, but its less of a surprise considering the we're tied for first in the league and he's started every game. Still, its good to see.

Yah, I'm really impressed with the D. I find they are making quicker and smarter plays this year. Last year they looked hesitant to make a pass which often resulted in brutal turnovers. Maybe they are now familiar with the system? Maybe because MAB is not on the backend? Even when MAB wasn't there, O'byrne was and Picard is much superior than O'byrne especially at puck movement. Adding Subban and Picard along with Hamrlik and Gorges improved puck movement we have a lot more mobility on the back end than last year. Imagine when Markov comes back, I get the chills!

Great to see Kosti stepping it up. And we're actually outplaying teams too. And no it doesn't matter that it's against poor teams. We're winning the games we're supposed to and outplaying them. That didn't happen very often last year.

And I'm really happy for Price. It's about time he got some support.

I agree with everything here. Almost surreal.

We're winning games by outplaying the opponent, scoring 5 on 5, contribution from the bottom 6, limiting shots yet we are

1. Missing Markov
2. Not scoring on the PP
3. Don't have Gomes and Gionta producing.

I'm intrigued to see how it unfolds. And you're right about Price getting support, he didn't play great, didn't play bad either, played good and was still able to come out with the win which didn't happen a lot last year!

Perhaps I am overly harsh, but the last few games he's looked a bit indecisive out there. He was good in OT against Phoenix leading to the goal, but a few times he just seems caught between going for it or hanging back. Like he's always remembering at the last minute where he is supposed to be and changing course.

I am not advocating kicking him to the AHL, just taking a game off to the press box before the team is forced to waive one of the two of them and giving O'Byrne one last kick at the can.

At this point, I'm sold on Picard, just think he might need a reminder he's mortal. He was by no means bad, just not as impressive in the last four games as he was in his first couple.

Against Phoenix was the single worst performance I'd seen from a veteran NHLer from him. I literally counted how many even marginally contested pucks he came away with and the final count? Zero. It was embarrassing.

Tonight he was a non-factor and to me that is a 200% improvement on last game

Darche and Halpern played well together. I like Darche going to the net. Picard is playing better and better. Subban is exciting to watch. Plekanec is so much better than Gomez. What worries me is Gionta and Cammy both firing blank. They have missed a lot of chances.

Letting MAB go was addition by subtraction. We've got some mobility, but we're still lacking the offensive firepower. Markov and Subban are our only bona-fide point producers back there. As of now, it looks like Gorges might be a guy like that too, but he hasn't shown that in his career yet. Both Hamrlik and Spacek are finished when it comes to offensive play, both used to have shots, both of which have disappeared into oblivion. And Gill...McGuire suggested we try him on the PP down low a la Chara. Interesting.

I disagree. Picard is doing okay with Subban but lets not forget that Martin is trying to protect these guys as much as he can by not giving them the opposing first line to contend with.

Picard has been caught multiple times for bad pinches, which thankfully, have not ended up in the back of the net.

I'll accept that Picard has been okay for a #6 guy, but lets not throw out words like "awesome", or "effortless" to describe this guy. He's still the guy you take out of the lineup without second thought when markov is ready to step back in.

Agreed entirely. It was difficult to watch the guy struggle with the routine clearing attempt. Ugh.
