Brian what do the stars beside Beaulieu and Bourque mean?

Bourque was questionable last game with the flu and likely isn't 100% today either. If he can't go, Beaulieu will have to replace him in the lineup. I typically use the asterisks when a players' presence is uncertain; the potential replacement player gets one as well.

Last game the Habs had their struggles at the faceoff dot. That may continue tonight as Nashville sits 2nd in the league in faceoff percentage (56.2%). The Preds are also unbeaten when leading after 1 or leading after 2.

Also...I would like to add that the Predators are unbeaten leading after three.

Habs continue to suck on faceoffs (18th) and PK (19th)

Last 3 years Habs faceoff ranking was 17th-22nd-25th and looks to be off to typical year again. I know some seem to downplay importance of faceoffs, but sometimes it does cost game(s), to basically hand over puck on majority of PK faceoffs in own end.

Habs are 33% on PK faceoffs, coincidence the PK sucks?

#14 is worst @ 11-20 and although he is a super penalty killer, I simply wouldn't have him taking PK faceoffs..

The one thing we lack on the team is a true faceoff specialist. Faceoffs are one of those things that are really underrated it seems. The importance on winning faceoffs is huge since you don't need to try and win back puck procession

Every time I hear that PK might not make the Olympic team my blood boils.

Norris winner. Leading Points for D. Solid D. PP quarterback. Grew up playing in Belleville on international surface.

No brainier, unless it's the old guard with a bias!

Once again, Subban gets called for everything!

If they leave him off the roster and lose, there will be hell to pay.

Galchenyuk seems to be fighting the puck a bit lately.

As they started putting the kids up against better lines they have cooled off a bit. It isn't easy playing against top lines.

If the vets would pick up their play it would help immensely. One line teams get smothered.

Habs are stuck in first gear. They look terrible. Can't complete two passes in a row and are really struggling to put anything together.


Was that Gorges with the wicked deflection?
