And your Montreal Canadiens beat a very good hockey team.
300 ws for Vigneault?
Not in this house. Amazing
Eller’s fine on the fourth line. He’s largely carrying it anyway. As the Ottawa game demonstrated, that line can be a disaster area without him.
Here’s the weird (and slightly worrisome) thing about Carey Price: statistically, he’s having the second-worst season of his career. Worse than last year.
He may be racking up more wins than last year, but his save percentage is actually lower. He’s stopping fewer pucks.
Which is really weird because none of the goals he is giving are softies. You’d blame the Habs defense but they’ve really cut down on shots against.
Of course at this point a couple one-goal games will fix those statistics but it really seems odd that at the time everyone (including me!) thinks Carey Price is playing great, he’s accumulating some really pedestrian statistics. I wonder what the numbers are trying to tell us.
Habs better stay far from the box tonight. Canucks coming in with the best PP in the league at 29.4%.
“It must be love!”
Changes coming to the All-Star game format. Fans would still vote for the starters and Team Captain would draft players from pool assembledd by Hockey Ops.
Doesn’t that put the Captain in a very bad spot? They will all feel like Stevie Y did when choosing Team Canada. But there is a possibility this concept would fly.
Pass or fail?
Well, might as well not watch tonight.
My money is on crosswords, but it could be sudokus.
Man if the team in front of Carey only allowed 20 shots on him like Brodeur gets in NJ, he would have a 1.5 GAA
On the other end, if they scored 3+ goals he would have an awesome record
I’m huge on statistics and numbers don’t lie. As much as i hate making general observations that can’t be backed up with facts, Carey does look more confident this year. He is making the big stops when they need to be made. I’m not sure if last year was marred by unlucky breaks (although that can’t always be the case) or what, but he does look better, even if he’s at .911, instead of .912 (which can, and likely will improve, i think).
A 2.45 and a .911 aren’t mind blowing numbers, but they’re good enough for me right now. Especially since goaltending is not the biggest of our concerns.
Goaltender duel tonight boys?
As per Dave Stubb’s twitter…. Chris Lee is the ref tonight… *gags*

Do you agree with Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin's decision to stick with a defence-first identity?
