Poor Kotkaniemi getting sand-bagged with two offensive black holes. Gonna be rough for him unless he has a Thanos "Fine, I'll do it myself" moment.

Funny ... that is what his wingers have been saying much of the season

"Let the big dog eat!"   Final road trip of the regular season begins, and this is the last chance the Habs' will have to feast on a weaker team. A win here either vaults the team into 3rd o

Let’s keep Triz making these for the rest of the session 🙌   Goal Caufield is gonna score again. You can’t stop talent like that. 

Eric Staal sucks

I wouldn't pick on Evans right now - he has been one of Montreal's better players lately, even in terms of offensive chances.

His last goal was on January 21st. He's a hard worker, I like him, but he's out of place anywhere but the 4th line.

Neither player has scored in the last 19 games and Evans has more assists than Kotkaniemi does in that span.  Right now, neither of them are ideal scoring options but lately, Evans has done a lot more than Kotkaniemi in terms of driving the play.

Are you kidding me?  Kotkaniemi is an offensive black hole himself!

Kotkaniemi - 20 points

Evans - 10 points

Lehkonen - 9 points

 

I'm not saying Kotkaniemi is leagues ahead, but he's clearly not the weak link here.

That’s depressing 

 

Put Caufield with KK and magic will might possibly happen

Was that Merrill with a poor decision, or was Caufield not in position?

A bit of both.  In hindsight, Merrill would have been better off eating it in the corner rather than trying to chip it out but he didn't have an outlet like he seemed to be expecting to see.

 

Re-wound ... both Anderson and Caufield were around the board side of the left face-off circle in theOttawa zone as the puck left the zone and Caufield did not really hustle back ... in fact, CC took the time to glance up at the clock to check how much time was left ... whether he could have made it back to the mid-boards to to support Merrill (who had his back turned when he threw the pass), or to cover the left point who took the shot that Paul tipped (if that was his coverage), is an unknown.

Alright, am I crazy?  I swear thats the 2nd time tonight that I've heard the canned fans chanting Go Habs Go.  It's a Sens home game, so the authenticity of the canned fans is on point.

Even at 20 yrs-old, a 3rd year, third overall pick, with "projected" 1/2C talent shouldn't need a rookie with 5 games under his belt to get him going ...

@revvvrob hopefully that is what happens. 

 

 

The Sens will have a really good team in a few years.  They've got some decent young guys now and they'll have more every year for several years.  They will probably be the next Hawks or Pens. 

 

They probably won't be able to keep their best players, but they're an example of a rebuild that looks to be on track, though you never know until they're actually winning.

 

The Habs, on the other hand, did a half-assed retool and whiffed on the key pick.  Winning the bubble play-in series and missing out on Rossi or Perfetti or whoever and ending up with Guhle might come back to bite us as well.

Can't see a comeback tonight.  Execution is horrible today. They really need to practice cycling. No goals off the rush equals loss everytime.

Jeez, they've looked dangerous in the last 2 mins.  If they can score they could do it again real quick and this could get interesting.

The Sens could score again.  Crap.

Just got home from Physio. Well I guess no comeback tonight.

Not a confidence booster to get dusted by the last place team with a week left in the regular season.

We will clinch tomorrow against Toronto

 

The magic number is three points over Calgary and even if Calgary loses, Vancouver can mathematically catch the Habs still.  It'd take a Montreal win tomorrow along with a Vancouver loss tomorrow and a Calgary loss tonight to do it.
