WOW Michael Whalen telling Michael Ryder how to play hockey in the interview. "For you Michael, what you have to do is shoot because that's the name of the game for you." If I was Ryder, I would have given Whalen a stick and asked him for a demonstration.

This was deja vu all over again from Dec.6, these 2 teams last meeting before tonight. Montreal got out to a 3-0 lead before Boston cut it to 3-2, just like tonight. And then here's the real crazy stat. Dandenault scored to make it 4-2 in that game, Dandy scores in this game to make it 4-2 and then adds the 5-2 goal. When I saw him score that 4th goal, I freaked out.

Unfortunately, I've predicted the entire road trip right so far. http://habsinsideout.com/main/1849 =Bottom of Page

THIS IS THE NIGHT FOR RYDER TO BREAK OUT!!! LIGHTNING ARE GOING DOWN THE CRAPPER AND THEIR GOALIE IS TERRIBLE!! IF RYDER HAS ONE OF THOSE 6-7 SHOT GAMES THAT HE'S HAD THIS YEAR, 1 OR 2 ARE BOUND TO GO IN.

Even if Huet got the win tonight, Price would have probably started in Dallas due to the back-2-back night games.

Koivu's looking great again when he has the puck. For the first month, he was so great dishing it out front to guys like Higgins, hence all his assists. And then from about mid-November to Mid-December, he looked so bad. He never won the battles for the puck. When he got the puck, he would throw blind passes away and the other team came out of the zone. All of the sudden, last Thursday against Philly, he started gaining some of that offensive confidence back and then he broke out last Saturday against Toronto. Tonight, he was making some great moves behind the net and he battled for the puck to get it to Sergei for the first goal. So if you want to take something positive from this game, it is that Captain K is back. P.S. Saku, you must get a new shootout move

I'm pretty sure Halak saved our season last year. Well....almost saved our season. If he started that last game against Toronto, we would have gone to the playoffs.

For the last few years, they've gone into their christmas road trip on fire and they come out of the trip struggling. Last year, they were 4th, i believe, in the East. On the 4-game road trip, they go 1-3 and from there choke down the stretch. In 05-06, they were top 5 and they went 1-4 on the 5-gm xmas road trip and struggled just to make the playoffs. This year it's 6 games. If history repeats itself, they'll likely go 1-5 or 2-4. But if they can possibly get 9-10 points out of 12, i think the season is turned around. The last few years have been ruined by this trip, why not have the complete opposite and have this trip turn around their season. Because right now, the season is slowly going down the toilet. Let's take a look at these 6 games and the possibility of winning. 1. Washington Dec 20th- Likely win, Huet in nets he'll want to prove himself 2. Atlanta Dec 22nd- If they can shut down Kovalchuk, they can guarantee themselves 1 point 3. Dallas Dec 23rd- I can't see them winning this game 4. Tampa Dec 27th- This is my guaranteed win game. Tampa is slowly becoming the worst team in the East and Montreal doesn't play in bad as Tampa as they do in places like..... 5. Florida Dec 28th- No way we're winning. It's just like going into New Jersey, you know something bad will happen. 6. NY Rangers Dec 30th- tough to say how NYR plays us. They've been weird to figure out all year. Hopefully we can get a point. I say they go 2-2-2 on this road trip which might not be good enough. PROVE ME WRONG BOYS!!!

i thought the streit-lapierre-dandenault line was the best for us tonight. It seemed everytime they came on they would get the puck in the Florida zone and cycle it around. I didn't see the other 3 lines doing really anything consistently like the laps line.
