Game 53: Habs/Rangers

  • A pretty solid game last night against the 2nd place Devils has left many in the Habs universe scratching their heads. Who is this team? Are we the blowout suffering push-overs from last week, or are they a team that can play responsible team defense and use speed to create prolongued offensive pressure? Maybe both? I guess that is life when you’re 2 points out of 6th place, as well as 2 points out of 12th.

    Pride should be a motivator tonight given how terribly the Canadiens played the last game against the Rangers. If they can pressure the Rangers defense and try to force turnovers the way they did against the Devils we may see them re-coup the two points they gave away.

    O’B is in the lineup tonight. Sergei is a game time descision. I imagine Jaro will see action again tonight.

    Go Habs Go!!!!

    Well just when we expect the team to fold against a superior team we see our team play its A game and fool everyone with a solid performance, question is can we do it two games in a row? I agree with Mats that pride is about to show up tonight and take the two points we lost earlier in the week back.

    It is time for BG to weed out the players who are not performing and bring in other who want to prove that they belong in the big leagues. Lapierre, for one needs a wake up call. Pacioretti should be sent down to Hamilton, also a wake up call, and DAgs is another that needs to be sent down. If we cannot make a trade for a top six forward, then we need to bring up some of our potential stars to see what they can offer.
