The Red Winds were better than I expected, or our Habs were worse. It's great to see Beaulieu showing more maturity out there, and there's hope there. But this team needs reinforcement on defence. I hope the Habs were playing in planned energy conservation mode. We'll soon know.

Desharnais is a stopgap player. He is playing a role, and he is playing with heart. He has to see the writing on the wall, longterm. Play him a lot of minutes. It's Ottawa, as part of a long season. He'll do a decent job, the Habs win the game and if someone gets hurt, it isn't likely to happen on the bench. I'm okay with the B-List players getting worn out in the regular season. You have to protect the A-list, over a long season. Desharnais is a hard worker and a team guy. He has been bumped down the list, and that will only accelerate. But he still plays hard and eats regular season minutes without embarrassing himself or hurting the team.

The Habs are a great show right now. Fast, smart hockey. Sekac is gaining in stature with every few games. I suspect he is going to be a serious keeper. That kid is really good, and seems to have a head on his shoulders. Beaulieu is looking more and more solid. Gallagher has re-aggravated his aggravating. Emelin is starting to maybe find his mojo again. Pacioretty isn't to be taken for granted - the young man is deadly out there. Subban is getting into a groove. He isn't the main show and he's more and more effective as the season rolls on. Price? Yeah. Galchenyuk? He doesn't just score, he loves scoring and he looks right to the guy who made the pass when he celebrates. What is gradually forming up here is kind of special. Young players, future dips and slumps, but something is building and we are finally getting to watch that again.

Last game worked out well - Price was great and Jones wasn't. But then again, there have been nights when they wouldn't have scored on anyone. And while we don't have games, we have food for thought. Is Desharnais' role as placeholding centre done (probably not, but as one of the RDS guys said last night, it's winding down). What will happen with Eller? And down the line, in a year or two, with Hudon? Hmm, I'd rather have a game.

It ended. I was enjoying that one.

Good hands, okay. But Sekac has steady hands, too. Jones is not good, but he isn't getting a lot of support right now, either.

The Kings are a balanced team - tenacious. Liking Andrighetto, and the Habs are liking that goalie. The Kings are letting the Habs get away with some lovely passes though. Good.

Price looks like he wants to play forward tonight.
