Another post against Price. Lucky but does not bode well for the series 

 

We're talking fine distinctions here but Price looks slightly less utterly in control tonight. 

 

But that said what we need is offence.

It's good to see the Habs thwart the Flyers PP.  The Habs got quite a few penalties vs the Pens so if their PK is unable to stop Philly it will be a huge problem.

Agreed, time to put Domi in the top 6

Suzuki had the goal right there, Damn.

 

Decent game but we had too little sustained pressure. Hart will be hailed as brilliant, but he wasn't tested rigorously enough.

Price did his job and held them to 2.  Our pop-gun offense did us in again.

Yes. But it was close -- a few different bounces and it would have been 2-1 Habs. Or 4-1 Flyers ...

 

I'm happy to see that the boys are in the thick of it, even if we opened the series with a loss.

God Oulett is garbage

 

 

I'm getting sick of CJ's shit where Oulett is concerned.

I am sure there will be changes for next game.

 

I can’t see him playing both Ouellet AND Weise next game.

 

at least one of t he sits , hopefully both

Well, it's not like we have studs waiting to replace him. But I thought Fleury deserves better than to be benched in favour of that dolt.

 

Habs need to adjust. I thought Philly had a significant edge for 2/3 of that game. 

 

It is hard to win reliably when your "best" scorers (Tatar, Drouin) can't bury the puck.Or even look dangerous.

Drouin I expect to be useless...but Tatar is deeply concerning.

Well.  He was sat on the vegas cup run. Another postseason like this and he’s going to be known as the regular season stud, post season dud.

We proved that this isn't a mismatch.  I expect a long series.

Carey had to be perfect and he was caught sliding on the Faradee goal.  Philly missed a couple open nets where he was out of position as well. 

 

The powerplay finally scoring was a good sign at least.  Hopefully kotka and domi can develop some chemistry, we're going to need offence from wherever we can get it this series.

Move Domi up to Kman's line and let Drouin be useless on the 4th line with Weise. I would like Drouin - Poehling - Belzile as the 4th line

 

Fleury in and Oulette out please

 

We hung in there but Philly controlled most of the play and had many dangerous chances. I feel like CJ is not playing to win but playing not to loose and CJ is too obsessed with line matching.

 

Lehkonen is indeed cursed

It is long past time for Poehling or even Hudson to replace Weise. I loved DW in his first stint with the team but he is done. I know Hudon is ill suited to a 4th line but is CJ must be the only one watching these games that cannot see that Weise is bringing nothing. And Ouellet? 🤬
