Ben Bishop looked human last night. I think the Hedman injury is gonna hurt more than the Stamkos injury did. Garrison and Stralman are good, and no matter what the advanced stats say about how good a first passer someone is, you need defensive D in this league.

It looked like someone had to tell him that they had won.

The Habs have two young D-men that are left-handed and chomping at the bit. Tinordi is 22 Beaulieu is 21. I think Gorges was traded for space but those two will anchor the left side when Markov retires and Emelin will be on the outs at the end of that contract regardless.

Manny Malhotra is a ridiculous 66.7% on Faceoffs this year. Eller and Desharnais are above 55%. Pleky is at 47% and overall the Habs sit 3rd in the league at 55.4% on draws. Consider that we have 4 away games and 2 home games, (its harder to win draws on the road cuz your stick is on the ice) and we have a nice little trend going here...

Morning Ron, Speaking of great D-men in Tampa, Victor Hedman took a shot off the hand and is out at least a week!

Bob Cole is a die-hard Canadiens fan! You're absolutely right in saying you would barely know it from listening to him call the game. Great post UCE, I was a bit scared when you mentioned the color commentator's name that the whole thing would vanish. As for Damien Cox (countdown until his name gets banned...) I lost respect for him when he reported the leafs jersey thrown onto the ice was from a Habs fan...at a Wings-Leafs game...

Montreal vs Boston Due to cap issues, they had to trade a 2nd pairing defenceman Bergevin trades Gorges for a 2nd rounder and gets Gilbert. (saves 1.1 million in cap space, signs Malhotra) Chiarelli trades Boychuk and gets 2 2nd rounders. We have a shrewd management team!

While the Habs have had slow starts this season, they've also been part of 2 home openers and it's normal for a home team to come out gangbusters in the first period, particularly in the first week of the year. Secondly, the next two games are 4 point games as Tampa and Boston are the other contenders to win the division. Wins against those two teams could matter a lot more in April.
