Can the Panthers stop the Habs?

  • What can you say about the Habs? They have been nearly flawless in their first 5 games of the year, pocketing all but a single point in the season opener.

    The guys who are supposed to produce are producing, the goalies are stopping the puck. Any doubts about newcomers have quickly been put to rest up to this point.

    Alex Tanguay has started on fire, averaging more than a point a game. Not to mention providing an important shoot out winner. Georges Laraques has certainly more than answered the bell whenever necessary. In only 2 starts he has overhauled the whole perception of the Habs.

    The injury to Andrei Kostitsyn is the only real concern at this point. He will join Chris Higgins on the sidelines for the time being. The Canadiens are deeper than ever, and the impact should be little if any.

    Will the 2-2 Panthers be the first team to really test the Canadiens? If not, who will? A long break follows tonight’s game until Saturday against the visiting Ducks, dead last in the league at this point.

    Are the Habs benefiting from an easy starting schedule? Or are they just that tough to play against?

    I have a funny feeling that its going to be one of those games where we come out flat. Florida might surprise us tonight……hope i am wrong.

    I hear ya Pac. For some reason the Panthers always scare the crap outta me, more so when we play in Florida though. I think SKost will rip it up with Kovy and Plecs. Halak will play well. I foresee a 3-2 type of game.

    One suggest to Habsblog:

    This is a BBS site where messages should be playing big on the screen, and messages should be in the easiest way for scanning and reading. Something should be modified here otherwise losing the participants.
