It will be interesting to see how the Habs react to their loss to the Penguins. Adjustments need to be made. The Habs have to do a better job of ‘the small things’ ie: getting the puck in deep for line changes, making good passes in the defensive zone instead of simply shipping it to spots, and keeping the pressure on the Penguins to force turnovers and offensive chances. All the things that Montreal did right against the Caps, the Pens did to them on Friday.
Rebounding will be made harder by the fact that Montreal’s best defenseman Andrei Markov is in Montreal having doctor’s tend to his injury which occurred in the first period of Friday’s game 1. PK Subban has stepped up admirably in Markov’s absence, but the Kid can only do so much.
The first goal will be a huge one.. more so for Montreal. Lets see if we can’t get a split boys.
Go Habs Go!!!
