Scary how much better that lineup looks, on paper, with Galchenyuk dressed...

 

It's nice to see some players back in their more ideal spots thanks to Galchenyuk (and Shaw) being back.  Mitchell and Flynn are much more ideal fourth liners than top nine (or even top six) options.

Now if only we could plug in Markov and Pateryn on the Blueline, then we'll get a better Idea of just how good this team really is!

 

I've got a bad feeling about this game. It would be easy to take the Red Wings lightly.

Wings at home 8-10-3...not quite the powerhouse anymore are they.

The Wings are a classy organization, but they feasted for an entire generation on the sheer, insane good luck of drafting two elite FWs in the nether regions of the draft. The praise heaped upon them over the years consistently overlooked this BS luck. They are loooooong overdue for a sustained run of crumminess to compensate.

Shaw and Nate will have big games.

Habs may lose but will be a close one.

One lineup change for the Habs from Saturday night - McCarron sits while de la Rose will play.

That was one of the most boring periods I've seen in a while.  The second pairing combined for a bad turnover that led to an Athanasiou breakaway that Price made a big save on.

i don't know, the 5 shots the habs mustered was exciting for you? 

 

need to be way better than that to win this one

Fortunately, Detroit wasn't much better that period either.  Both sides need to pick it up a notch...or two...or six.

They had a breakaway and a couple of scoring chances. i'm not even sure the habs had one. 

 

maybe they will get the wake up call between periods

A couple of scoring chances generally doesn't constitute that good of a period most games.  Athanasiou's was a prime chance and it was nice to see Price make a key stop early.

Weber's breakout passes are awful.

Well, that looks like the game. 

 

Habs aren't going to score. they are just floating around out there.

Both teams played better that period although that doesn't really say much.  Tough break on the Vanek goal as that one was going wide.

I picked quite the game to do a 3 Stars column for - some creative writing may be required if they don't get it going in the third.

How do you not score against the wings, going through the motions. 

 

Atleast they didn't give up 4

Well, that was one wild and exciting game, but outshot 20-18.

Hey, at least the PK shut down the powerhouse Wings.
