Montreal Canadiens 4 Toronto Maple Leafs 5 (OT)
Montreal played well but an unlucky bounce off a ref caused the loss imo. Anderson was so fun to watch and Suzuki is the real deal. Guess the Habs management kind of lied when they said Romanov was on the third pair...(He played 22:49, 2nd most on the team behind Weber). He had a great pass that led to a goal and he played well too. I liked KK and Toffoli had lots of good chances just couldn't finish (including an open shot in over time that he shot straight in the goalies chest) Overall a good but unlucky game for the Habs. Next up: Saturday vs EDM

Yeah, it was a good game, but the bounces didn’t go our way. And I don’t think that Romanov was meant to play so much. He just ended up playing a lot because of all the PP time, and got time on the PK because we have D in the box. He still spent most of his even strength time with Kulak. But he looked really good, and I could definitely see him playing higher in the lineup if they wanted to make the D pairs less even.

One of my takeaways is how good the powerplay looked. When they’re in the zone it isn’t too different, but the zone entries were exponentially better than they were last year. My only gripe would be that I would want KK to shoot more, rather than just trying to dish the puck away every time. Even if he’s taking a stationary wristlet, his shot is still deadly, and worst case scenario the puck has a better chance ending up on another hab’s stick than when he’s passing directly through the PKers.

It's only a matter of time before he starts to shoot more

I now like the Domi trade a lot more, Anderson did great, Romanov is definetly NHL ready, Price is in good form even though the stats don't reflect it, Toffoli did well, Suzuki will be 1c by the end of the season

Great game all around. Petry continues to burn his former team. Carey was just stellar tonight. He absolutely shut down Edmonton’s PP.

Edmundson looked good, and Romanov continues to impress. Anderson’s skating is very similar to McDavid’s, and his big body is going to make him real dangerous in the cut towards the net move that he likes to do.

Can’t wait for the rematch on Monday.

@GMs @Blazingbat11 @MTLaveragefan @SevenLeg @math731 @Habs4ever @jpsnow13

I thought I’d tag some people so that you know that this exists. The team forum posts can get buried down pretty low in the forums section, so they don’t get seen as much. Anyways, this is probably an easier way to discuss habs games or news than it would be in the comments of AC-GM teams.

Also, feel free to tag anyone I forgot.

Happy to see someone recognizes Edmundson is playing a good game. He is leading the team in blocked shots, plus/minus and is tied for the lead in Hits. He has come as advertised, nothing fancy but efficient in his own end.

I am glad someone else is seeing Toffoli is playing well. The points may not be there yet, but his wall work, passes and d-zone awareness are much better than I expected. I liked the Domi trade right away and Suzuki is a stud.

Toffoli has been playing well, but it hasn't not translated in the scoresheets just yet. I really feel like Armia is slowing them down with his laziness & lack of implication. I'd try Byron on Kotkaniemi's LW for the next game.

I agree with you i feel like Armia is more well suited for a grinder line than a scoring line, he’d do better with Evans and Lehkonen

I cannot agree more. Armia on the 4th line is the best version of Armia.

Yup all in agreement!! Armia on the 4th line with Lehky and Evans. Byron with more speed to compliment Toffoli and KK.

Evans and Edmundson really redeemed themselves after the Leafs game.

Romanov was recalled this morning I wonder if they would consider sitting Kulak for a game and running

Chiarot-Weber
Romanov-Petry
Edmundson-Mete

I feel like playing Romanov with Petry would be more beneficial for the kid. Petry is one of the best 2 way defenders in the game.

Well Edmunson has been doing well with Petry so i'd be hesitant to switch it, but maybe play him with Weber since Chiarot hasn't been great

I don't see CJ doing this as it means 2 young guys on one unit, but IMO it would be the right move.

Well 2 kids on a powerplay unit isn't too bad and Mete has decent NHL experience

What do you mean? They (Chiarot - Weber) have looked just as good as they have since they’ve been together, and their xGF% is 3rd out of D-pairings.
