Montreal's fourth line is an odd trio but it seems to be working.  Galchenyuk can have the puck on his stick more often and Martinsen and Ott are doing well mixing it up along the boards.

Pleks truly is useless. He is soft on the puck and does nothing. Chucky is really playing to get traded and a shitty contract.

Down 1-0 heading into the 3rd, got them right where they want them. Seems to be the strategy of late

I've been thinking about players like Galchenyuk that always seem to get a bad rap for defensive play. Every coach wants them to be something they are not. But has a coach ever told a player like Bryan Flynn "I need you to score 20 goals this year or else?"

Defense is teachable, skill isn't

3 times this period i thought the rangers should have been called for icing and they let it go. 

 

Oh and there is dwight king getting the great chance in the slot.  Glad its him and not Chuck shooting that.

Putting your second highest PPG guy on the 4th line is a problem.

I didn't say it was his fault.  I said (sarcastically) that I'm glad he was in the position to take the shot instead of chucky. 

 

The clear implication is against the person who put him in that spot.

Time to flip King and Galchenyuk. Should be Danault for Galchenyuk, but that ship has sailed. This hockey thing is won by the team that scores the most goals. Same problem every year.

More fun when we're winning. That first fluke shot set up the whole psychology of the game

Danault is a loser!!!

 

What aggravates me about this game is that the Rangers have had about five minutes of solid hockey. The Habs can't win 0-0 with credit for being first on the puck. They have to make something happen.

If the team is traumatized 10 minutes in after a goal, this series is over

They are not traumatized... its just the same problem we've seen time and again, this year and previous years.  Not enough skill to finish the plays they make.

First game jitters.. tripping over your feet.. we all do it. 

Then the Rangers thought.. why not win the series here tonight and came out gangbusters.
