Habs need a good road win over a hot team. Islanders just beat Hawks, Devils, Wings on a fout game winning streak. Halak vs Price. Should be a good game! Habs opening shift against sens was great the other night. Chucky line should start again.

Would be nice to see some free wings at Le Cage tonite. Little too far for me to go but the goals are nice. Halak getting chased would have been great. Wanta see Galchenyuk and Patches put up big points tionite.

Looked.. from the little I saw like Emelin got caught standing still setting up the 2 on 1.

'bout right?

We ever lost to Brooklyn before? Don't seem right.. Montreal losing to Booklyn...

Not a bad PP. Gally came real close.

Shots 3-3... but theirs had a 1 in front of their 3....


Poor Islanders. Such a great period and only one goal. Theyre screwed now. We will win 3-1.

Brilliant strategy to let them feel good by letting them score and pretending it wasn't part of our trap... :nuts:


How come you guys ain't out shopping??

What an awful period. It looks like they are already on xmas break.

I wouldn't Tavares was lucky, I would say Andraghetto is incredibly soft.

I'm not sure which they had more of, shots, hits or battles won. Each less than 5 I'm sure.

Nit a shining moment alright.. but am I wrong or are the guys not working pretty hard out there.

Maybe it just looks like hard work to me.

What a drag to see its THIS habs team tonight.

Powerplay for first 90 seconds pleks, dd, parenteau (has that ever even been a line)..... not a shot. nice

Gonchar and emelin paired together have fast young forwards drooling.

Is Douglas Murray better handling a puck then Emelin?

This is probably totally unfair.. but I was expecting quite a bit more from Emelin.. for no particular reason...cargo cult syndrome perhaps..

They work hard. On the road mt does not even attempt to match lines. Some opposing coaches will turn that into gold. Not like the habs have been shut down on the shot clock on the road. Especially in the first. Count on another marathon night for pk and markov

I am a Murray fan, but would/should never pass him the puck, same as Emelin.

Just stick to what got you to the NHL, keep it simple, shot puck around boards and out, hit people hard and often
