Regardless, Habs are in:  

I don't have the lineups or anything else for you. What I do have is the facts. We need a point. Period.  Get your butts out there and get'er done boys. Can't wait on Calgary losing to

Yes, and maybe their coach will actually spread the ice time around as a result. Have never seen a coach cater to one player so much, from double shifting, to putting him on with opponent goalie

I do wonder if Weber wasn't injured would Ducharme have sat one of Merrill or Romanov in favour of Kulak? Because I gotta say, I'm not sure Romanov would be in my playoff lineup at this point, and Merrill isn't too far behind him (though I wonder how he'd be on his strong side.)

The Habs need to be a lot better with their sticks in their own zone.  In that PK it sure looked like Suzuki could have easily put his stick in the way of the 1 pass to McDavid.  However, Suzuki made no attempt to stop it.

Ducharme has been adamant about playing Romanov on the left which bolsters Merrill's case.  Chiarot has had his moments on the right but if they want to reunite him with Weber, that would leave Petry/Weber/Merrill on the right and Kulak/Romanov battling for the third LD spot.

On RDS2, Boucher analysis showed how EDM is countering  MTL’s 3rd man pressure by having their 3rd man cut behind the pressure and be ready to rush as the far D gets the pass under the pressure 

 

it is creating lots of space for EDM on their breakouts.

 

and in the O zone, the D are playing the system and trying to for the plays with 2 Ds to one side but again EDM is working around it

 

According to Boucher, the Hab’s D need to be more active in the O zone and the 3rd man needs to support the D and cover the pass/net-from when the 2 Ds are pressuring

Evans needs to be above KK on the depth chart.

 

That line has been used more this game. 

 

Which is fine by me, give the ice time to the line that is going well.

Play the guys who are going well the most...simple concept, but one that Ducharme fails to grasp more often than not.

Was that third goal on a PP ... because it looked like it.

End of season NHL speed is too much for Romanov.

 

He kneeled on that goal expecting to make a save. But of course, stopping McDavid is almost impossible

No, was just Mc David deking the crap out of Tatar and leaving him out of the play.

Hmm, "Byron chopped the puck back to the blue line".  Thats odd, I saw him get crosschecked and as he fell he pulled the puck backwards.

Ds are carrying the puck deep and generating chances

 

Evans line is very fast and that is creating havoc for EDM

 

Go Habs Go!

Staal staying on his ass sulking about the non-call, rather than hustling back to the front of the net to be a factor on the upcoming shot, is the last straw for me...lazy old bastard shouldn't be playing.

They need a clean period from Allen in the 3rd.  For all the talk of the rebounds that Koskinen is putting out there, he's putting a bunch out as well.  The Habs are playing decent enough to get one more goal but Allen can't afford to cough up another one here.

Couldn’t follow it during the play, but did Dom/Richardson switch the D pairs?

Seemed like Kulak was back with Merrill and Romanov with Chiarot a few times.

Merrill hasn't been good. 

It seems like he struggles on his off side
