Hope they put on a good show today!

Can they shut down the 'big three', who have combined for 119pts.

It looks like Johnston's in again while Redmond sits.  A defenceman who is terrible (on a good day) in his own end against guys like Crosby, Malkin, and Kessel.  Oh boy...

That was a pretty goal to watch. How often does the chalkboard plan work perfectly!

 

they got the pens right d to bite and then they were chasing. 

 

Wish I could see a full replay so I could see whose fake at the blue line did the job for Montreal.

With the assist on Radulov's goal, Paul Byron now has a new career high in points at 22. He also reached this career high in 10 fewer games.

Period recap from my POV in the nosebleeds 

 

Byron was buzzing the whole period. 

Price made 2 crazy saves that had this section groaning. 

Emelin hit - nice. 

Weber missed the net on a great chance 

Pens power play was impressive (last one not so much). Habs had better be done with penalties 

Beaulieu stood out a few times 

Happy with Petry

Max almost cost a goal by failing to clear a couple times on one shift - looked good in offensive zone tho - so not a bad game so far

McCarron had one shift in particular that really showed what we hope he becomes

 

Thats what I got off the top of my head while I wait in line to get my beverage during intermission

Considering the penalty problem the Habs had that period, to come out of it with the lead is pretty good.

Weber looked bad there.

2 on 2 - Weber had the puck carrier ... why Emelin didn't take on Hornqvist, I'll never know. 

 

EDIT! Just saw the replay. I'm too hard on Emelin here. Weber was beaten way earlier in the play and it was Byron racing back to try to get the puck carrier before the pass happened.

I wrote this before the second goal was scored. 

 

He just helped prove it. Now I don't know why he was on the ice so long!!!

Johnson looked like a kid playing against a man there vs. Kessel

The Pens have been having fun all game against the Habs' D. We just have to many weak links back there to be able to reliably contain a team like that, when it's in full flight. Jonson was sad on that play, but Weber and especially Emelin didn't look so hot on goal #1 either. Maybe MT & Muller can make some adjustments for the third, but in the longer run, maybe we should be looking for an upgrade in the bottom pairing come the deadline...

The habs D is awfiull out there, soft slow and can't win any battles. Why is johnston in the nhl? 

 

Kind of amazing they are tied at 2. 

 

Good thing they have Byron

Terrible second period. Habs were lucky to tie it up on a deflection. 

 

I've lost count on how many oddman rushes the Pens have had. The Habs cannot play this wide-open against the Pens!

 

where is da system!

At least Johnston made it through the first before he got completely exploited.  He only had one shift after that the rest of the period.  I know they're not confident in Redmond but he's at least somewhat passable; Johnston's a third pairing AHL player.

Remember that old commercial with NHL stars competing on who could score the most ridiculous goal? ("hit the glass, off the scoreboard, ding the crossbar and in")

 

Flynn just scored a contender.

One point at least is still better than I expected.
