    Occasionally the opposing goalie also has something to do with the lack of scoring.


    There were some great saves made, but there were also too many high/wide shots on great chances that let Markstrom off the hook.

    Matheson is exhibit A of an example of a dman that at times looks like a legit top pairing guy, but clearly isn’t one. He is an elite skater very skilled, but just makes too many bad decisions.

    Agreed...he makes big mistakes far too often.

    Yeah, we're in tough. But like they say - that's why they play the games. 🤷‍♂️


    Exactly.  The purely logical part of my brain is saying that the Devils will win handily, but after watching New England beat Buffalo this past Sunday I am reminded that outcomes don't always make sense.

    It seemed to me that the Gally line started the game strong and then gradually lost its way (maybe because the opposition coach made an adjustment targeting that line? I dunno). By the third Gallagher was flailing around out there, coughing up the puck and losing battles like I've never seen from him before. Embarrassing. I want to say "that can't go on," but I don't know what the Habs can do about it other than paying him $6 mil to eat hot dogs.


    I was of the 'give him 10 games to maybe prove he's turned it around some, then pressbox him if he still stinks' mentality.  But after watching him for two games, I don't think we can afford to give him that long with him being as useless as he is now.  If he shows nothing in the next 3, then let him sit and eat hot dogs.

    I have a funny memory from when I was 10 or 11 years old and watching the Caps vs NYI game and it went into OT. 


    I remember watching that game too.  That and the Flyers Penguins 5OT game stand out in my memory as the best long games I've watched.

  5. Now that the Oilers are out, I look at the remaining teams and ask myself who I want to win the cup.  I dislike Carolina (history with Habs), not a fan of the Kraken (too new, the far-left city they represent, dorkiest home barn name in the league)...so I guess it'd be most palatable for me if Dallas or Florida win it all.

    Probably. I would have been watching the Habs under Perron/Burns, so that’s what I remember - and it wasn’t exactly freewheeling hockey, let me tell ya.

    Same.  Back then, out of market hockey games were not a common on TV.  You'd get the odd glimpse of a series featuring American teams on TSN, which was the only sports channel on Canadian cable.

  7. Can't help but feel disappointed that we didn't have some luck and move up a bit.  By the time we pick, Fantilli will definitely be gone, and almost surely Carlsson will be gone too.  Michkov will surely fall, so we have to pray someone takes Benson over Smith if we want a blue chip centre prospect.

    It’s not just the Leafs of today. If they win the Cup, you are going to hear about it endlessly from the media cheerleaders for the rest of your life, presented as the Greatest Moment in Hockey History when All of Canada Cheered the Team that Everbody Loves. Over. And over. And over. And over.


    I’ll take a slightly lower pick to spare myself that. 



  9. This is a must-lose game.  Every guy on the ice should be aware of what's at stake, and do just a little to ensure they come up just short.  Take a penalty here, miss a check there....but for God's sake, do not screw up and get a point in this meaningless game!!!


    Also, tonight we celebrate the last time we have to see Drouin in a Habs uniform!   😁🍾🎉
