Man, I wanted Weal to get ice time, but at the expense of Kotkaniemi?

Damn the announcer for proclaiming "Mete - Scooorrrres" as I was glancing away. 

 

Only to have been tipped in by Gallagher.

 

My heart skipped a beat.

The young lad has played a lot of hockey. I don’t think it will hurt him to watch for a game.

 

With the way the kids constantly learning and watching that actually might be a good thing.

I dont like weise in the lineup, especially with KK sitting.

 

Not buying the kid is fatigued line.  Hes been scoring points in 7 of his last 12 games and his analytics are as good as they have beem all year.

 

That said if its one night... it cant hurt too bad to get weal in there.  I would have had weal over weise a while ago.

Ideally the 4th line should be Lehkonen - Thompson - Weal, with Nate and Jordan alternating faceoffs depending on the side.

 

Weise and Deslauriers should be helping Laval right now.

Lost in the Mete Almost Scored hype is that Gallagher has his second 30 goal season.

 

He makes $3.75 million.

If Gallagher would give just one of those goals to Mete, he'd have 29.

I think Tatar will score today since this is game #67.

I don't mind Kotka getting a break, in fact I wouldn't mind other key guys getting a night off now and then.  Unfortunately our defense is so paper thin that it's impossible for Weber to rest.

Weal scores in his first game as a Hab.

 

Mete:  “Am I a joke to you?”

Well, not the most entertaining game but is 2 pts.

4pts for the Weber-Meat pairing.

Price played solid again.

So that win ties Price with Plante in wins as a Habs.

 

As romantic as it would be to see him break the record in Montreal, I most look forward to seeing it done tomorrow night in SJ.

If Price is sick, sit him against SJ, rest and the Anaheim win is more important. 

 

Even when healthy and not back to back Habs have a slim chance against SJ.

Weber's goal gave Montreal their 11th player with at least 10 goals this season, tied for 1st in that regard with San Jose. 

 

Lehkonen is next closest to 10 at 7.

Mete will reach 10 in 2054
