Sekac Eller; big strong and quick. Very tough combo to deal with. Come playoff time they will become a real force and they are young which bodes well for the playoffs which is the second season. Oh to be young and strong!!!

As Jean Beliveau said the great Montreal teams were built from the net out. Great goal tending solid D. Excellent game from PK and the rest of the D. This team could go a long way.

Someone commented that the Eller Sekac line should be on the powerplay. Totally agree and have been saying that for weeks. The problem is not Markov Subban or Gomchar. The problem is up front with a less than aggressive fire check. The puck is lost too easily. As for the play of Weise I remember commenting to my son that the Rangers knew what they were doing when they took him out in last years playoff. His fore checking was killing them.

Was really impressed with PK last night. He was really pumped as you could see during the anthems but he stayed solid in playing the system. His strong physical play behind our net was key in the second goal. He kept the play in front of him and no passes that were risky. Rock solid. This was a good team they were playing but the Habs kept their shape and Price as in most games makes the saves he has to make.

Tinordi as we need his physical presence to take pressure off PK. When the playoff arrives the physical aspect of Tinordi's game will be needed even more. I have other issues with Beaulieu.

So glad to see Therrian recognize the strong play of Eller by having him on the ice at the end of the game. Has not put up points but I can't help but notice how many times an intense shift by hime is follwed up by a goal from the shift following i,e. the intensity level of our game is raised. Drew a penalty and the power play scored. Bourque needs to step up to the same leve. Eller is our most effective centre against the Bruins at playoff time and to win the cup we need his size, agility and intensity. If Bourque can't handle it play Bournival; a player always at full speed and full effort.

Great game for Markey last night but I am concerned about his minutes. I have said before Therrian needs to take a page out of the Greg Popovich (Spurs) game plan. Greg limited the time of his veteran players during the reg season and worked in the young talent. By playoff time the older players (Duncan, Parker, Ginobli) were not leg weary annd they obliterated the Heat. Last year in the series against the Rangers Markey looked terrible from fatigue. He was on for 3 of the 4 Ranger winning goals. We will need Tinordi's toughness in the playoffs so increaase his ice time/games. As for PK dial it down a bit. But in his defence this guy is such a "force Multipler" (miltary term) Plus 3 last night as his mere presence opens up the ice for every body else. Teams have to pay so much attention to him. Who was Markey playing with last night? PK Subban. Galchenuk! This guy will be a superstar.

Felt bad for the Bourque Eller line. Their heavy forechecking got it going and created the energy for the tying goal. Bad luck on the 2 almost goals. They had a strong game. They have the physical presence for a game like this. Will be needed against Philly.

Glad they kept Tinordi. He does need work but we need somebody at the back that can rumble. The thought of PK busting a finger in a fight is not good. As for Parenteau he doesn't need to wear a cup as he has no balls.

This is for "PAZ" Saw your comment on Parenteau "punking out" on the checks this morning. His lack of balls on a few occasions was rather noticeable. Is Patches going to be the tough guy on the line? PK defending pleks etc. Bergevin better find some muscle somewhere. Are the Kreiders going to skate over Price every game and there be no reply?
