Other tidbits from around the league tonight The Panthers scored 2 goals in 12 seconds in the game's 60th minute to earn their SIXTH OT loss. They are at 17 games played and if they can win some of those games in hand, may contend for a wild card spot and face the Habs in the playoffs. The New York Islanders sweep a home and home to catch the Pens at the top of the division. As badly as the Habs were beaten Tuesday, I think the Pens will have a mighty amount of trouble getting past either the Isles, Rangers, or Flyers. I would be surprised to see Pittsburgh make it to the third round unless Fleury stands on his head.

If Montreal had that many bodies out of the lineup, we would be crying and moaning as much as the CBC guys did. We played an AHL team tonight. That being said, I will take the two points and run! My whole family cheers for Boston so it's going to be a particularly Merry Christmas at my house this year!

I am not sure I see the acquisition of Bryan Allen as a diss of Beaulieu or Tinordi. I think that is simply what Murray was willing to give up for Bourque. The fact that Bergevin was able to get 2 serviceable players for players many of us would have traded for a bag of pucks is nothing short of incredible.

5 straight wins with margins of at least 3 goals and we are up against the two teams that have allowed the least amount of goals so far this year. Something will have to give!

ESPN has the Habs number 1 now, and it was written by Pierre LeBrun.

Morning Ron, That 12th makes him the best of all the Canadian teams. Poor Gallant gets 29th despite taking the Panthers to a half decent start in Florida, 5 points behind Boston with 4 games in hand!

Ridicule the analysis, not the fact that people like numbers and stats.

Mad props for excellent use of the word husbanded! I want to see more of Gonchar but so far he looks like he is a bit lost when the fast guys go around him. He took a few penalties to that effect as well. Makes you wonder if maybe he shouldnt always play 2 consecutive nights.

Good morning everyone! Boone, I think your problem is more with analytics bullies than analytics "weenies". Nothing wrong with looking at statistics. Some people just like thinking they are smarter than other people. Real stats guys will tell you the numbers can be interpreted any way you like. Also, as a teacher, if I ever find one of my students passionate about numbers or stats, I would never call them a weenie. I acually tell my colleagues that teach math to introduce them to advanced hockey stats. I had to give the math teachers a crash course but it has shown good results so far. (Which was funny because I am a history teacher)
- Comment on Game Within the Game: Brandon Prust is Habs’ tough big brother (2014-11-16 10:25:03)
I am sure it was discussed yesterday, but given last night’s performance, do you think there is any truth to the possibility that the Habs might trade Tom Gilbert to the Detroit Red Wings, as speculated by Elliotte Friedman yesterday? We wont carry 7 D forever. Bournival is closer to coming back, and playing Detroit imminently might be the reason this isnt happening yet…
