Habs fight back

  • The Canadiens showed last night that they can still play hockey from time to time. They actually looked like hockey players, playing as a team and they managed a huge win. A win while coming from two goals down, something they haven’t done in a long time.

    Aebischer let in the first goal and then another on a penalty shot and it started to look like the same old story for the Canadiens.

    It didn’t look great when a cold Mike Dunham comes off the bench, having not started in 19 games and stoned the Canadiens on 3-4 good scoring chances. Basically outshining Aebischer at that point.

    The Habs key players started doing their job.

    The best game by far in a long time for Guillaume Latendresse, Michael Ryder, Chris Higgins and Andrei Kostitsyn. Hopefully this is something they can build on and produce consistently down the final stretch.

    Yvon Pedenault made a great point, letting us know Guillaume Latendresse now has more goals than Alex Kovalev. One is a rookie, one is a veteran earning over $4 million.

    The log jam is even tighter now with 5 teams within only 2 points of each other. All of a sudden the Islanders don’t look so secure anymore. Especially with the future of Rick DiPietro uncertain. They are by no means safe. Which is good news for the Habs.

    #147 Xhabsfan “Georges Laraque declared himself “100 percent” after the Penguins’ practice Thursday. He had missed two games because of back spasms. Since the Penguins won both games and coach Michel Therrien generally doesn’t like to change his lineup after a win, Laraque said he didn’t know if he’d play Friday against the Canadiens.” – Pittsburgh Tribune Review

    Still Roberts to worry about…

    This week will make us or brake us. Its all on the arms of the rookies because half of our vets are injured and the others dont seem to have the same drive as the rooks.

    Aebisher still scares me when hes in nets but it definitely makes the games exciting because every shit, no matter how weak it is has about a 75% chance of going in.
