2-0 after two

And it should be 3-0.

Video reviews in Toronto missed the angle that showed Josh Gorges fishing out a puck that had crossed the line.

Michael Grabner took advantage of errors in the neutral zone by Brian Gionta and Alexandre Picard to sweep in alone and, of course, beat Carey Price.

Canadiens had a 16-7 shot advantage in the period.

    WOOOOO

    GOAL!

  2. Keith says:

    Nailed that Russian!

  3. Harditya_CareyPrice says:

    Russia getting some real good chances…

  4. VancouverHab says:

    That’s a great forward line.

    But defense & goal? Beer league.

  5. Harditya_CareyPrice says:

    Leblanc had an assist in the 1st, hoping to see him rack up more points as the game continues 😉

  6. Timo says:

    Sounds like a starting All-Star lineup.

  7. HardHabits says:

    Petrov-Koivu-Bure

    MAB-Breezer

    Racicot

  8. Timo says:

    Like MAB? Nobody will ever come close. 

  9. Timo says:

    That’s ok, Keith. Hockey can’t be touch free. Canada also does it’s share of plays that would/could be called. I think it’s been a great and enjoyable game so far. You will understand why when watching Habs vs Islanders tonight 🙂

    Darche, but with a lot more talent

  11. HardHabits says:

    Nice screen by Leblanc on Bobkov.

  12. PK All Day says:

    Really? Darche?  That’s setting the bar low.

  13. Matt_in_TO says:

    Haven’t seen much of Leblanc play but does he normally create traffic like that in front of the net?

    Russia getting away with alot of clutchin n grabbin.

  15. thorandresson says:

    Leblanc is looking good, I’m thinking he’s going to be like Darche but with a lot more talent.

  16. Timo says:

    Nice! Hard working goal! Go CANADA!!!! Leblanc crucial on this play.

  17. sidhu says:

    Leblanc with the nice setup right there on the PP, should have been a layup.

    He goes to the net, helps them score.

  18. Harditya_CareyPrice says:

    FOLIGNO!

    GOAL!

  19. Timo says:

    If this was a Habs player Chris Lee wouldn’t have called this interference. 🙂

  20. Keith says:

    Bout time they were called for one!

  21. Matt_in_TO says:

    No kidding.  Same thing with them leaving the trapezoid painted as well.

  22. Harditya_CareyPrice says:

    I am liking what I am seeing from Leblanc.

  23. sidhu says:

    What’s the deal with the crease at the CAN-RUS game?  Only some of it is painted blue…. anyone have an explanation, aside from a lazy American employee at the rink?

  24. Timo says:

    Khe… driving into the goalie. I like that.

  25. Keith says:

    No kidding. I’m not even french and I find it annoying and unprofessional.

  26. Harditya_CareyPrice says:

    That was a brilliant individual effort by #11.

  27. Keith says:

    Excellent pk by Canada!

  28. Matt_in_TO says:

    Someone please tell Gord Miller it’s Leblanc, not Leblonk

    wow timo, start your own blog guy, this is getting embarrassing.

  30. RetroMikey says:

    Aa mucgh as you and others including myself want Weber to succeed in Montreal, I really can say I do not see it happening based on watching him play many times in Hamilton. 

    He does have a wicked NHL point shot  but he is so small, easily muscled and prone to defensive lapses. 

    Not a good combination as Boone will agree with me.

    A player in progress IMO.

    Sorry to offend any Habs fans but them the facts.

  31. OneTimer says:

    Big, hulking, knuckle-dragging team lays a few big hits in the opening minutes, and then the faster, more skilled team scores…what is this, Habs-Leafs?

  32. Timo says:

    Boys are too focused on hitting… little on positioning. How Subban of them.

  33. Timo says:

    Can Subban still play junior? Would be good for him… JM’s just wasting him away anyway. 

    Canadian boys looks pretty big.

  34. Timo says:

    Alright… Let’s go Canada! Let’s get our gold back.

  35. Timo says:

    Did you try turning the TV?

    I made it

  37. kempie says:

    Does anybody have an online feed for the Jr. game? I’m working and the TV is facing the wrong way.

  38. likehoy says:

    I believe PK just began believing in his own hype. With everything from rumours swirling around Markov’s future and his injury status, and PK being talented enough to play big minutes.

    PK needs to take a step back and not take things for granted. It’s the only way he’ll gain composure on the ice.

    I think that’s PK’s biggest fault, he lacks composure with the puck. It may seem like a stupid thing to say with  his ability to carry the puck and his incredible stickhandling…but in spite of these talents, he doesn’t know when to do what with the puck yet.

  39. Shiloh says:

    Weber could grow into a star offensive defenseman (like Streit) and so I’m glad he’s getting a couple of games in a row. It can’t be good for him to sit so long. That being said, I don’t like PK sitting out again. It’s almost like his own club is supporting what that weasel Richards had to say. I would have much preferred JM to respond by supporting PK. But then again PK has made some big mistakes on defense. Maybe the coaching staff has it right. Go Habs!
