The same things were happening last Thursday against the Ducks. The goal that blew the shutout was a coaching error and not Gorges' fault. He had been overplayed. Gorges had been on the ice for three of the previous four minutes. PK had been on the bench for five straight minutes when the goal was scored.

And how did that work out? Lesson learned?

Speaking as someone who had listed Lars as my profile "Current Favourite Hab" since O'Byrne was traded, there is no further up on this team than being given the teams's hottest scorer on his proper wing. All the line needs now is the proper amount of power play time.

Per TSN player transactions... "Columbus Blue Jackets traded Steve Mason to the Philadelphia Phillies for Michael Leighton and a 3rd round selection in 2013." He really better work on his glove hand.

Now he is ahead of Komisarek in a team's depth chart. Actually a good pickup for the leafs, he was in a really good pairing with Liles in Colorado.

If you want to get really pissed about the "Toronto Sports Network" go to their game tracker for last night's game. Photo not available?

Why did Eller, after the type of game play to score that opening goal, get a whopping TWO SECONDS of powerplay time? Just wondering.

What I would like to see is no power play special teams. The team has three scoring lines, roll them. We have two blueline parings with offensive ability, leave them as be and play them. No more awkward post power play pairings with the resulting confusion as we try to re-align the defense back to the normal pairings.

You missed "they are out there banging each other hard"

Bergeron, Picard and now Diaz. The worst defenders I have watched with the Habs, but somehow they all get or got so much love around here. I don’t have a clue why. Diaz was on for three goals tonight and was directly responsible for the second and last goals. The second goal he backed off Moulson to bump a$$ with Moen rather than cover Moulson who was open in the slot. On the OT goal, he completely stopped and didn’t get over to cover the scorer. Go to the Behind the Net stat sheet, Diaz and Georges are our only defence men with negative Corsi, and I am not blaming Josh. That paring is lacking a puck mover in the worst way. They can’t get the puck out of their zone, and the forwards always have to hang back and wait for the centre to go back and dig it out. It does not seem to happen to our other pairings. Maybe there is something to the Georges/Subban crap. They don’t ever seem to be out together, but they need to be. Until they play together and Boullion and Diaz are the third pairing playing 13 to 15 minutes a game, this team won’t be able to move up to elite status. Diaz has been playing way too many minutes and has been making brain oxygen deprived mistakes as a result. PK was on for all three of our goals and still can’t get out do the dog house. Go back and watch the video of the first ten Habs power play goals, we scored six of them with the defence playing on the off wings. They have to start bringing it into the zone on the off wings.
