    My only concern with this team right now is where is the toughness? Perfect example was last night when PK makes his mental mistake that led to the penalty for slashing. If there was proper retribution for the player who upended Markov by the bench, then probably no one would have any problem with that. Standing up for your teammates is important in the overall scheme of things. PK handling it like that I agree was stupid, but I wonder who was stepping up to enforce the situation? And nothing happened the rest of the game to that player. If guys like Kucherov, Connolly, and Johnson can flutter around like fire flies all night without getting so much as a whack on the hands, or shins, let alone a full body contact then no wonder they put up the points they did. Their team ran around running guys like Markov without fear of any sort of repercussion. That concerns me. You beat teams like Tampa Bay by taking away their space, shutting down their scoring opportunities, and hitting them every chance you get and instilling a little fear in them. We don't have the present team chemistry for that it appears and last night was a perfect example. We were out hit, out shot, out skated, and out muscled, by a team that should not do any out muscling of anyone. Johnson's 2nd goal from 2 feet in front of the net never happens if he is flat on his can. But we were more interested in playing the puck than putting him on his butt where he belonged. And, he is 5'9 165lbs. That is sad. If that is what Max was talking about afterwards, when he said they were "not competing" then lets see them compete next game and throw some darn body checks.

    White in for Weise. Otherwise Ok. Briere has been playing better lately and deserves more ice time. Egg line back together. And Vanek up front with Patches for some definite size advantage on that line. Looks good. Now score some goals. "A cannonading blast from the wing, by Lafleur"

    Not necessarily. We gave them three goals and we were still right there. It was the fourth one that killed us. I think just making a timely save could have proved the difference last night. That 4th goal to me was inexcusable. That gives players and coaches nightmares. "A cannonading blast from the wing, by Lafleur"

    In a one goal game when your team is busting it's ass to tie the game late in the game and your goalie gives up a terrible game ending goal which takes all the air out of the tires that is where the game is lost. It was not lost because of the players being tired, two games in two nights, and all that BS. The game is either won or lost usually by bad plays. PK knows that scenario all too well. So lets let the blame lie where it belongs for once, not on PK shoulders, not on the players, how about a weak untimely goal by the goalie. If you can't admit that then enjoy a life of mediocrity.

    How so? You didn't see the Habs dominate the second period. You didn't watch them have a goal disallowed, while a Phoenix goal was allowed that should have been disallowed. And then Budaj lets in the weakest goal I think I have ever witnessed to take us effectively out of the game when we were down by ONE goal with plenty of time to tie it up. Yup, that's the game we all watched. Which game was it that you were watching? "A cannonading blast from the wing, by Lafleur"

    Yup agree. "A cannonading blast from the wing, by Lafleur"

    Good one. It is frustrating that the difference between a starter, like Price, and a back-up like Budaj, has to be showcased in just about every game Budaj, or another back-up plays. Can't we ever have a guy come in for us, and stone the other team like what happens to us at least 10 times a season. Oh, wait a minute we thrived on that situation for years didn't we, with Dryden, Penny, and then Roy. I guess we've used that trick up. "A cannonading blast from the wing, by Lafleur"

    Absolutely. Two weak wrist shot goals from bad angles against Pittsburgh. The terrible 4th goal last night. 1-2 weak ones every game. They cost you and last night his 4th goal allowed cost us 2 pts. The team could not bail him out. "A cannonading blast from the wing, by Lafleur"

    Exhausted? They out shot Phoenix 11-1 in the second. We were down only one goal with 7-8 minutes left in the 3rd, until Budaj lets in one of the stinkiest goals ever. Which effectively took us out of the game. if I am a player on the team I am not happy with my goalie today. Plain and simple. it cost us the game. "A cannonading blast from the wing, by Lafleur"
