From Newfoundland to Yellowknife, and I watched my Beloved Habs put a trouncing on them unGodly Flyers. Honest to God, I think the Flyers are responsible for putting the "H" in "Hugly"!
All I can say is speed, speed, and more speed. That's what we witnessed tonight. The Flyers cannot score or jam the crease when they don't have the puck.
Going to bed a happy camper.

On most occasions, pulling the goalie for an extra man don't pay off. The second empty netter was the one they didn't get against the Sabres. I was scared again, but they did what they have been doing consistently since the break - they won.
Since we're on about trends, Habs fans (maybe we're not an anomaly) just love to beat up on ex-Habs, whether they're doing well with their new team or not. Not so long ago folks 'round here were looking into the "Cristo-ball", touting Kovalev Koivu, and their lost boy - Lats. Carey Price, the poster boy was the savoir...and he's still here. Latendresse's good fortune in Minnesota is living testimony to the old adage - "there has not been a bad wind yet, that didn't blow somebody good"!
We're all fools at sometime, and as I keep reading posts on HIO I am reminded of that.

First of all, I wouldn't call it a collapse. Lindy Ruff is a superb coach, and he showed it with his smart and bold move swapping out Miller for a 6 on 4. However, had the Habs got control they could (having been short-handed) iced the puck and shot for the open net. It could have been 3-0 Habs and we would have been talking about the "complete" game. But, the Sabres are a good hockey team, and they are well coached - never mind they have the best goalie in the league. They pulled it off as good teams do.
Having said that, bad things happen, even to good teams. The Habs played very well and they have collected 16 out of a possible 22 since the break and have and have lost in regulation only twice in that span. As much as it hurt to watch the last 3 minutes of the game last night, I went to bed knowing that they are playing good, solid hockey. I do know good hockey when I see it, and I watched it last night.
