Liveblog: Another W; Jets grounded 4-3

160351178_slide

That’s four in a row for your mighty Montreal Canadiens.
Best thing was it didn’t come easily.
The Winnipeg Jets, who were ridding a three-game winning streak of their own, fell behind 2-0 before battling back to take the lead.
A third-period goal by Tomas Plekanec, on the deadly Canadiens power-play, was the only goal of the third period.
Carey Price, who was shaky on the first couple Jets’ goals, made huge saves down the stretch.
Canadiens penalty-kill was great late, when it had to be.

Brendan Gallagher, with a goal and an assist, was the game’s First Star.

His linemate, Alex Galchenyuk, had two assists and was Second Star.

On to Ottawa.

    Great game all around…still some rust with DD but he’s working, Cole seems a bit off kilter as well but he’s always been a late starter…nothing but good so far.

    Prust…what can you say about someone with average skills and tremendous drive…but wow!!!

    ***SUBBANG BABY!!!***

    • HAB-PROFESSOR says:

      Average skills? PRUST? pure N.A.G.
      with great hands, skating and puck control, did I mention he CAN HIT and FIGHT and is loved by his teammates….

      DD is playing scared, but COLE is determined, did you see his goal,
      thats drive.

      Don’t underestimate the PRUST EFFECT…..


      The N.A.G. effect remains the only path to success…

    Kane is so annoying, I was SOOOOOO happy to see him getting rocked by Emelin!

  3. FunkyCrabChairNF says:

    Emelin is racist

  4. Rad says:

    Gallagher 1st Star, Galchenyuk 2nd Star. Sweet!

  5. Wow,what crappy referring in this game. Prust call was brutal. League should fine this set of officials.

  6. Captain aHab says:

    How about the PGA line? Golf connotation is bad but if they keep playing like this, it won’t matter.

    Call me a Pricebot or a fanboy, but none of those goals were Price’s fault. And you can say he had an off-game if you want, but what I will remember from this one is the tremendous save late in the game when it was 4-3. Clutch.

      Halak would have scored the winner though…bank shot off the end boards, hits the back of the goalie’s leg, off the post…and in.

      ***SUBBANG BABY!!!***

    • Chuck says:

      He had a couple of those. There when you needed him, for sure.

    • billylove says:

      Price did make a couple of nice saves down the stretch. Still don’t like his somewhat carefree handling of the puck. He’s not as good with the puck as he thinks he is. This is one area he needs much more work, not much different than two years ago.

    • savethepuck says:

      Maybe he should of smothered the original shot on the 1st goal that went to the guy alone on the side of the crease, he didn’t have a chance on the 2nd bouncing puck, and I slo-mo’d the 3rd goal and I’m sure he didn’t pick up the puck until after it went thru Diaz, i.e. He was screened. Nobody can question he was solid in the 3rd to hold down the fort when his team was outplayed.

    Well another win. Games we didn’t win last year.

  10. savethepuck says:

    4 in a row and the last 2 W’s were against teams on 3 game winning streaks. Having a lot of fun watching this hockey team. They don’t let up, they keep putting the pressure on. Entertaining hockey.

    Emelin deserves a star.
    Go Habs Go!

    Love the Gally’s and for sure Prust…he sure played his heart out there tonight…took a beating and kept digging and working hard.
    This is a very different team than last couple of years.
    Love the work effort and the taking care of each other out there.

  13. PeriodPain says:

    Last year this is a loss. Way more character and much better coaching

  14. Dunboyne Mike says:

    I like Evander Kane (remember Matt Cooke?).

    But I like seeing Emelin wipe him out at least once each period even more!

    Carey had a good 3rd. DD had words with Antropov.

    Another W.

  15. HardHabits says:

    Settle down Internet tough guy. You’re not Prust. And Prust is Prust because he would never do that.

  16. habsfaninboston says:

    Nice to see the boys get it together in the 3rd on the PK.

  17. Captain aHab says:

    Well folks we have ourselves a team…and now we get Subban instead of Kaberle.

  18. CharlieHodgeFan says:

    Emelin was a star in that game too.

  19. L Elle says:

    Glad Bork finally got a star. Great game, made greater by the outcome. ;)

  20. 100HABS says:

    Price had a bad game… but we still won!
    How many times could you have said that last year?

  21. Habitant in Surrey says:

    …thank You Dear Lord for the chance to be a Habs Fan

    …Amen :)

    Entertaining game!!

  40. habsfaninboston says:

    Good hustle by Prust.

  41. twilighthours says:

    $2.5 mil per is not looking like an overpayment for prust

  42. Muckbringer says:

    Not a make up call.

    Pull the goal!,,

  43. I love Prust… Hilarious how he gets at the opposition

    Refs have been inconsistent, not unfair.

  45. Mondou6 says:

    One of the first games of the season last year, we got like 2-3 “embellishment” penalties. I don’t remember ever seeing any of those called on the other team.

  46. Le Jadester says:

    Kane just got Emelined!

    Habs, OLE !

  47. Don Carnage says:

    BOOM BOOM on Kane lol

  48. HabinBurlington says:

    The kinda period you wonder if the league reviews its officials.

  52. Stevie.Ray says:

    I said during the second period that the refs weren’t really calling an unfair game, but they were letting too many hits from behind go for both teams.

  53. McKanadiens says:

    Gotta love these new guys. So much heart added.
