The coaches are in mid-season form with the platitudes.  

 

Kinda strange to have this Superbowl-weekend schedule in October, might be an advantage to be the road team in this situation.  Feels like St. Louis should put up a stronger effort than they did last time, but maybe they're sticking with what works for them and aiming for last place in January.

Price is 1 shutout behind Dryden.

Habs goalies will split the back-to-back starts.

Will Domi look for payback on Pietrangelo cheapshot?

We know he will, but I wish he wouldn't.

GOALLLLLLLLLL! Weal from Domi tip in. 1-0 Hab


It was the second PP unit again, it’s been the better of the two by far so far this season.

Overplay Weber. Go ahead.  We got options.

The key is to use those options instead of Weber taking all the shots. They did, and Drouin picked up a nice PPG. Good work!

Suzuki is having a game. I was going to mention it before the goal.

Suzuki's goal started with Gallagher going hard at the defenseman that had lost his stick. I'd say it was a great decison by Gallagher, but we all know that it wasn't a decision... it was proclivity.

Armia was scratched, too. Any word on him?
