And now we at least know we have to focus on scoring a goal. This might bring about some order to this mess.

Not all trios are generating chances

seems like the Habs are chasing the puck all the time 

 

Ds are not joining the attack as usual.

 

Caufield is playing well. Price is just awesome 

 

Habs need a lucky bounce or a dirty goal. TBL is not giving them any space

On Staal.

Easy opportunity to get the puck out and he eats it along the boards. Why battle when you can just dump it out.

 

But don’t play the guy that is the 2nd line centre of the future. Play Eric here’s another turnover Staal.

There’s no friggin reason that he should have been in the lineup. He’s done squat for at least 5 games, and that goal is on him and his line like. We need goals and sit a guy who’s scored for us in desperate situations for a guy who is clearly done.

 We’ve only really had one really good chance and Anderson and Caufield both flubbed it. Price is really the only one who has show. Up tonight. The D has been horrid. The vets lousy and the kids clearly nervous. 
next time we get a PP, may as well just take a penalty by running Vasilevskiy. I don’t know why they have to use a set play to carry the friggin puck through the neutral zone. Not sure if this an issue of over-coaching, instead of making the available play.

We need a sniper 

 

Price has been amazing. 
 


Not a fair comparison as we were unable to enter their blue line - we stunk

It’s because they are trying to use a friggin set play to get out of their friggin zone and go through the neutral zone.

Only player other than Price that’s put in a consistent effort is Evans. The rest of the team has basically sucked.

This would be a good time for gally to get going…

 

For sure. He has been a ghost these playoffs. Must be injured but should be playing down the lineup at this point

It would be nice if Toffoli started to do anything.

You mean besides giving the friggin puck away and curvilinear back to the blue line and losing it??

Second period showed some life and some good chances.  There no way this game ends up in a shutout.  Habs just need to score the next one.

I am following this game via online comments and live blogs, unfortunately. But is it wrong to observe that the Habs’ PP was more dangerous when Gustafson was on it -?

 

You're not wrong.  Petry's injury has made him borderline unplayable on the power play.  He can't shoot and zone entries haven't been his forte as of late.

There it is. Good night. 

 

You know there's no prize for being the first to call game over, right?

They use these set plays frigging everywhere. Another reason I’m not a Ducharme fan

He can shoot when set up and he can hit the odd guy if he's not moving too quickly. Much better for the regular season. He's more of a detriment most of the time .

Put Armia and Toffoli together and Gally with the vets.  Pull out all the stops this period!

More specifically, something positive.  He has done a few dumb moves in this series that have resulted in negatives.  He has largely been neutralized in the last couple of rounds.

I disagree. Danault, Gallagher, Byron and Lehkonen are also working their asses off. No goals, but they are doing a stonking forechecking job.

This is probably the worst I’ve seen Caufield. Seems tentative and not decisive when he has the puck. When they showed his face on the bench when Tampa scored, you’d think the score was 5-0.

Vasilevsky has shut out every team this playoffs in the game they were eliminated.

Yep, he'll score the 1st goal.

In his defense, he did try to draw a high sticking penalty.  I hope Toffoli gets the 2nd goal.

Evans will get the 3rd goal.

Gallagher is falling down constantly and swiping at stuff… something isn’t right with him..

Safe to say we win if we score then?
