Nov. 7, Golden Knights vs Habs, 7:30 PM

Recommended Posts

It's a matchup that has been 100 years in the making.  After the Golden Knights equalled Montreal's century-old record for the fastest team to reach nine wins in their inaugural season over the weekend (at least they beat Ottawa to do so), the Habs will be out for revenge.  (That may sound like artificial hype but it sounds better than saying that Montreal is facing an expansion team that will either start a below-average minor league goalie or a guy picked in the seventh round less than five months ago that has been traded already...)

Three decent looking lines doesn't look to bad to me.

Looks a hell of a lot better than Vegas.

Hopefully they can take advantage of a tired team that played the night before.

It's the defense that needs tuning. Need someone consistent to play with weber. 

 

I hold judgment on the direction this team is heading, but if Bergevin still feels this team can go for it this year, Ekman-Larson would look damn good go on the top pair. That's more of a dream than anything though

EKL would cost a lotand would become our top Dman.  Hell he is worth more than Weber and I’d take him over Weber, but no GM in their right mind would trade a young puck mover for Weber, unless we were throwing in galchenyuk or something like that.... oh wait, never mind?

If we're getting Ekmann Larsson, then we better not be sending Weber the other way even if the argument was that he's better.

 

I doubt there's much of a reason Phoenix would

do that deal either without myself having looked at their respective contracts.

 

:gohabsgo:

 

I'm looking forward to this one. I'll throw out a 4 or 5 to 2 win suggestion for the Habs. Although with Lindgren in net.... we might do better :o

Shea Theodore will be a healthy scratch for Vegas so Brad Hunt is in.  Brendan Leipsic will also sit so William Carrier will play.  Max Lagace gets the start so the Habs will face the career minor leaguer instead of the seventh round junior guy.

Outshooting them 8 to 1.

A disappointing end to the period with Bellemare scoring.  It was a nice individual move but that was a stoppable shot.  The Habs are playing very well - if they keep that up, they'll be fine.

Good period.. come out flying in the 2nd and get a couple more.

 

Drouin is flying.. he's due for one!

13-2 in shots. 

Petry sucked that period, that is for sure.

Petry makes up for his colossal blunder. Nice tip by Max.

Shaw with a great assist.. he's been one of the best forwards this season.

Sorry to bring down a solid game, but Alzner is such a waste of money

We are at the halfway point of the game.


They have 4 shots... total.

What has he done wrong tonight. 

 

They are getting no chances against him.

He can't even make a pass. Pretty sure dump and chase are his two middle names

He wasn't brought in for his offence. 

 

There is still value to a defenceman who is a shot suppressor. 

 

Whether he is a consistent shot suppressor, that is debatable.  But tonight, the Habs are giving up very little in terms of shots/chances.  Tonight, he's done his job. The whole team has with the exception of one poor play by Petry (which he later made up for).
