Will this one be worth watching, last one was a bit encouraging at least?

of course, regardless of final score, I would like to see:

 

Toffoli - Dvorak - Anderson = > drive the net, create scoring chances

 

Drouin - Poehling - Armia = > be consistent and engaged

 

Lehkonen - Suzuki - Evans = > shut down the other team

 

Pezzetta -  Perrault - Caufield = > positive surprise ! not a liability, bring/keep puck in the o-zone

 

Chiarot - Savard = > I want themr to become the shut down pair

 

Kulak - Petry = > while waiting for Edmundson, do not suck

 

Romanov - Wideman = > show that the good play from previous gmaes together was not fluke

 

Allen = > be Allen ;)

If the Habs score but no one is watching, does the puck make a sound ?

No ...... but the bloody siren does

Missed the first. Saw Petry being Mr Turnover on the pp and the Habs score

 

is Allen being Superman? Or are the Habs playing well? 

Allen playing well (IMO), with both teams having their moments ... Habs goal was on a PP by, of course Ben "Boom Boom" Chiarot ... of course they habs gave ups a shortie on one of their other three APPs

From the 17 minutes I watched;

i liked Chiarot, Perreault and the Dvorak line 

 

Caufield seems to have some jump tonight 

 

Wideman is physically overmatched ... I miss Niku

Is Petry Brisebois 2.0 ?

 

This season, yes.  That said, I'm not prepared to call him that moving forward; this isn't necessarily a sign of things to come for the final three years of the contract (I hope).

Perrault may have some "deadline veteran" value ... I felt the whole;e team was physically overmatched ... habs best hit off the night was Romanov ... he took out Poehling and managed to slice up his own face on Ryan's visor

Wideman covered "Gretzky's office" perfectly on the third goal (too bad it was empty) .... and Caufield was (to be kind) not well positioned against Burakovsky, and there wasn't really anything he could do against mom physically

Cale Makar is a beast, 10 goals in 18 games.  Makar and Byram, what a pair of young defenceman to anchor your team on the blueline for the next 10 years. 

 

YUP ... 3-4-5 Dallas, Colorado and Vancouver did well in that draft (Miro Heiskanen, Cale Makar and Elias Pettersson) ... Devils and Flyers (Nico Hischier & Nolan Patrick 1-2) not so much
