Looks like Thompson is in and Cousins has been promoted to the 3rd line:

5 shots on net in a period...unreal.  Pens could have had a Jr A goaltender in there and been alright.

In fairness, Pittsburgh had 7 shots.

 

Neither team wants to open it up.

Something tells me Claude Julien will like that first period.  They were a lot better defensively than they have been.  It came at the expense of anything resembling an offensive attack but at least the defensive structure was there.

Something tells me Claude Julien won't like that second period.  The Crosby line beat up the Habs in transition and the Penguins in general did a much better job of exposing Montreal's defensive weaknesses.

Poor Price, only guy out there who makes a difference, 

 

With all due respect to tatar and suzuki who are basically the only habs offense now a days 

 

Price will just have to pick up his game and start scoring goals 

 

Looks like the mustard has come off the kavalchuk hot dog

Defenders chasing crosby and leaving his teammates open was the cause of all.3 goals.

 

You dont need both chiarot and suzuki to chase him to the side of the net and leave zucker open on the one timer

I believe they teach you at age 5, on a 2 on 1, d-men take the pass, goalie gets the shooter

They look like an unmotivated bunch that's just playing out the string at this point.

For whatever reason, Montreal's strategy seems to be try to take away the pass and most of the shooting lane.  It looks great when it works but when it doesn't (which happens a lot), it's ugly.

I think the news that Weber was out for the rest of the year broke the club.

 

They have been trying hard all year to overcome the obstacles but that really sealed the deal and they are playing like it.

But did Claude Julien like or not like that third period?

Its on Bergevin for not upgrading the D in the off season. Its the same team as last year, with the same weak D core as last year. Now  Weber is out and this group pretty much other than Petry is full of bottom 6th / 7th guys

I guess it was a good night to cuddle up with my loved one and miss the game.

 

I hope you all had a good valentine.

Something tells me he would be okay with that period.  Lots of shots and some decent chances which wasn't the case early on.  The production wasn't there obviously but I thought the effort was and if they made some adjustments to try to kickstart the attack, then it wasn't all bad.

Suzuki tied 3rd rookie scoring.

After 1:10 and 1a yesterday, Mete now has played total of 3:20 PP time this year, maybe Weber's injury will allow him to show that he deserves more?

Let's hope this helps Mete. I think that with more playing time on an offensive role he would start producing and become a threat, he is a great skater and has good flair

I didnt see that.  The team seemed to work hard to.try and come back.  They may not have scored but i didnt see them quit.

Gotta have the flair.:nuts:

Kovalchuk had 8 shots

Getting close to (already past) "mathematically" still in it; but really not a chance in hell.
