  1. That was a better period and it was nice to see them get one. The Habs are getting shots through but I wouldn't call a lot of them as quality chances. Some more of those would be nice for the 3rd.
  2. The front line had a nice flurry towards the end of the period and the fourth line had a couple of opportunities but that period resembled last week in terms of not generating a whole lot.
  3. Montoya's DTD. (I think Jason Labarbera retired last season.)
  4. You should have caught the last couple of London games on Sportsnet. He's undersized but he's still a very effective player at the junior ranks and his speed really makes him an intriguing prospect.

    Lineup for today's game:
  6. I wouldn't necessarily say that. Therrien gave Lehkonen quite a long leash this year and his ATOI under each coach is practically identical (after factoring in tonight's 11:37, it's probably within a second or two). Lehkonen spent a fair bit of time in the top six under Therrien too.
  7. What happened to the power play? It actually looks good for a change.
  8. It wasn't pretty on the cycle game in the defensive zone on quite a few shifts. Not exactly the most inspiring start after a tough game, that's for sure.

    I'm a little late getting this one posted as the first game was already played. It was the opposite of the last couple of games as this time, it was St. John's pulling off the comeback. Tied at three apiece in the dying seconds, Keegan Lowe picked up the winner and the IceCaps get a crucial victory. The other goals came from Julien Brouillette, Jeremy Gregoire, and Yannick Veilleux. It wasn't all good news, however, as Chris Terry was injured in the third period. http://theahl.com/stats/game-summary/1016874
  10. This weekend, the IceCaps (31-25-10) look to rebound from two blown leads and get back in the win column against the Bears (38-19-11), the highest scoring team in the league. (Line combos are based on +/- data.) C. Bourque - Stephenson - Mitchell O'Brien - Boyd - Galiev Walker - R. Bourque - Walker Vrana - Sill - Barber Djoos - Gilbert Backman - Lewington Bowey - Labrie Copley Hudon - Terry - Carr Matteau - de la Rose - Friberg Scherbak - Audette - Farnham Veilleux - MacMillan - Gregoire Hanley - Lernout Lowe - Johnston Brouillette - Didier Lindgren Puck drop is at 2:30 PM EST for both games. AM 930 has the call.

    Just by sheer odds eventually more than one line will (should) score at a time. It's encouraging to see some of the slumps end over the last few games, now the key will be to build on that and not just goals to reset another potentially long slump.

    You're right - I don't think Carolina would win a game if they were to somehow sneak into the final wild card spot... At some point the Habs are going to start to score a bit more often. That time needs to come soon though.

    Petry looks a lot more engaged than he has been lately. Perhaps this is the night he ends his lengthy goal drought.
  14. I gave up on that a while ago. He's too inconsistent to really be relied upon long-term. He's a 4/5 on average but even if he plays in a #4 role, I don't think he'll have the impact many were expecting (or hoping for) just a couple of years ago.
  15. An hour until game time and still no GDT so here's a quick one: McGinn - Staal - Teravainen Aho - Lindholm - DiGiuseppe Skinner - Ryan - Stempniak Nordstrom - Rask - Brown Hanifin - Faulk Slavin - Murphy Dahlbeck - Pesce Lack Pacioretty - Danault - Radulov Galchenyuk - Shaw - Lehkonen Byron - Plekanec - Gallagher Martinsen - Mitchell - McCarron Markov - Weber Emelin - Petry Davidson - Benn Price
