I did... they were outmuscled and need to get bigger. Oilers manhandled them.

that is about it...I think the Habs played a very ,very good 1st, they gave up after the 3-0 goal and sucked bigtime in the second but shouold never have been down 3-0 to begin with..just did not exectue but not outplayed. Then in the third I think they were likely screamed at and told to play good hockey in the third and played about even IMO. I think the teams actually match up pretty evenly against one another.

Sorry, I had it backwards...Montreal actually was the team getting the better shots ...I was looking at chart wrong at first.

well Habs outshot them too.. http://gametracker-nhl.tsn.ca/18032 Here is the shot location chart and hit chart as well. Habs had as many shots from good positions, Also regarding hitting...please take note of how few hits happen anymore in todays game anywhere but along the boards. You can see how teams protect the middle and do not want to sacrifice good position for a hit...so next time you knock Diaz or anyone who you perceive to be "Shying away" or whatever realize this how they are taught. Whoever gets their first will get hit and if you do not have time to make a play you risk getting hit adn turning the puck over and being on the outside of the play looking in. Habs actually got more shots from better spots. This game is moore a result of more positional gaffs, blown coverages, then anything to do with being outmuscled.

Just for the record...HAbs 32-25 in hits last night. Habs outshot LA 31-30. HAbs got trounced 6-0. Sometimes teh score makes people created their own reasons the team lost...it is hockey ....crap happens, you win some you shouldn;'t , you lose some you shouldn't (hello Oilers game!Isles beat San Jose last night, etc). That is hockey ...Habs did not get beat because of their size or any other crap reason people are coming up with. They didn't capitalize when they had chances, the Kings did. Habs made a few costly mistakes...LA converted..good for them.

yeah...ok. 2 points is 2 points...HAbs lost but the attitude on here that they were totally destroyed is ridiculous beecuase everything after the 3rd goal that shouldn't have counted doesn't matter.

That is because Gallagher plays that way iin the offensive zone...as are the guys Diaz is competing against. MT clearly has his players stay "inside the play" in their own end and play conservatively. We often get frustrated with long possessions where it seems noone knocks guys off the puck but it is calculated risks within a conservative system. He wants the guys to maintain inside position, block lanes, block shots, keep everything to the outside. Where the real trouble was was getting beat so badly to the puck that the Kings had too much time to decide what to do with it...however, I take that with a grain of salt given the state of the game when they looked really ugly. Guys visibly got lazy once they knew it was over.
