Lundqvist typically plays very well vs Montreal at MSG, but poorly at the Bell Centre.

The Rags were also the last team to allow a Scott Gomez goal

I guess Kaberle did feel like a heel on last night's shoot out gaffe. He was instrument on getting the Rangers running around on the goal.

For everyone saying Cammy never gets goals from in front of the net.... go to NHL.com and watch all his goals from this season.

4 of his last 5 goals as a hab came from right in front.... a rebound vs ottawa, converting desharnais pass vs Tampa.... tip ins vs San jose and vs Carolina.

Yes, that is exactly where he can score from. The problem is he doesn't have many goals because he wasn't going there very much. In some games, he never went there. Cammy is the one who needs to watch that tape...

Easy goal for Pacs, but he needs them. A few goals and his confidence will be back and he will loosen up on the stick.

Strong start by the habs.

I'm a fan first, before I play coach and GM. I believe Gauthier acquired Bourque to address the need to get bigger. First impression? He's fast and huge!

Agree that he needs to go there more.. just saying, he "never went there" isn't exactly true.

No doubt Cammy wasn't playing as well as he is capable of.

When Bourque is motivated, he's a dominant player. When he isn't, he's invisible. Think of him like a poor man's Rick Nash.

Good, he has a very manageable cap hit.

Let's hope that the pressure cooker that is Montreal supercharges Bourque to be a maniac :clap:

If he can score five on five and play motivated for the Habs, he'll be fantastic for Montreal. He has the potential to put up 30 goals and 50 points a season, which is a steal for his cap hit. Unfortunately, he couldn't do that in his own home province so I think that's un unrealistic expectation for Montreal. 20 goals and 40 points would be great. It won't replace Cammalleri but this trade wasn't about replacing Cammalleri.

Oh it was Eller... that was bad defence there. Uncharacteristic for him.

It's always something this season really. Eller didn't do well on that last goal. Next game Subban will blow a tire or there will be a bad penalty. Always 1 or 2 little mistakes or bad bounces that amount to a loss. Sigh, always on the bad side of a 1 goal games sucks.

This could be seen positively... as in Eller and PK (your two examples) are both young and these mistakes will be less and less frequent as they mature.

We have had some bad luck, but I really think the team will be excellent soon! As long as management doesn't screw up toooooo bad haha

These mistakes kill us because we don't have the offense to win with a mistake or two. Having to play perfect hockey and have a goalie stand on his head to win is not the sign of a great team.

I've always said, the youngsters in your system have until they reach age 25 to make mistakes. Once they hit 25, they should be scrutinized for the mistakes they commonly make.

That sounds exactly like Cammalleri. When he was motivated, he scored goals, so long as he was healthy and not too longer after he returned from an injury. Then there was this season.

When Bourque is motivated, he's a dominant player. When he isn't, he's invisible. Think of him like a poor man's Rick Nash.
