You may have a Canadiens bias, but your opinion is not biased. It is entirely accurate except for the part saying Emelin is known for embellishment. Emelin gets up as soon as he can, even if hurt.

A few things: 1. No physical edge, as many of us pointed out before the season began. This despite the presence of Prust and Tinordi in the lineup. Just no response at all to that cheap shot that took out Emelin for a while. Nothing. Nada. Something lacking in team spirit there. 2. No net presence. That's probably a result of having no physical edge. See No. 1 above. Other teams deal with the Canadiens very easily. They simply park a bus in front of their own net, knowing none of the timid Habs, Gallagher excepted, are going to rush in. The bus also stops long range perimeter shots--P.K.'s blasts included--and there are no onrushing Habs to get any rebounds. This is a bit exaggerated, of course, but it's generally true. 3. So why, then, do the Canadiens sit atop the league? Carey Price for one thing. Some good luck for another, including few injuries. And I think they're in better early season shape--fitness--than other teams, which would account for their superior third period performances.

What's a pick for one is not a pick for the other. Some very fine line drawing there by the referee. In fact, I thought the line was invisible.

Check on Emelin was late if you ask me--initiated after puck had left Emelin's stick and entirely avoidable at that point. A cheap and dangerous shot since it caught him on the head and off balance. Finishing the check? He hadn't even started it until the puck was already gone.

Well done to the lads. A lot of composure tonight. In control most of the way. A wonderful start to the season that will serve the team well later on.

The Plekanek-Galchenyuk combination is poetry: Boone likes their complicity And me their synchronicity They give us felicity End of the ditty Not too witty. I'll get my hat.

The Canadiens deserve to be up by more than 1. The comment numbers are low on this blog because the Canadiens are winning. They'll pick up if the Canadiens lose a couple on the trot. So far the Canadiens have shut up most of the negative nellies who love to tear the team, coach and management apart.
