That game was stupidly lame. No further comment.

This coming from a sens fan makes this comment worth nothing :) You guys are the better team but I don't mind you that much, just alfredson. Habs on the other hand.... we're 2-1 against them.

I didn't get to watch the game, but from what I saw the only reason Ottawa beat Montreal last night is because Huet did not show up to play. When I was watching montreal was playing fantastic. It is nice to see Rider actually taking shots and getting back to form in the past two games.

Ottawa was probably really ticked off that they lost to Toronto on Saturday and Montreal was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

You should have stopped there.

Huet was not the problem. Heatley, Alfredsson and Spezza were allowed to skate around and connect on passes at their own free will. I've never seen a team allow so many players to cross over to the middle for a good shooting opportunity like I did last night.

If you want to blame anyone, it's the Habs defense that let the Sens skate around unscathed, and our forwards for once again, not being able to bury their chances. The first 2 goals, the Sens had no problem making cross ice passes and skating to the net. Same with the 4th goal. That being said however, Huet didn't steal us a win either. But he was not the problem

We have a stupid schedule of 6 games in 9 days, including 2 back 2 back games.. Not enough rest for the amount of games in such a short period. The schedule is ridiculous.

You probably saw that sequence early in the 1st period where Montreal got off like 10 SOG in a short period of time and sustained 2-3 shifts of pressure. Well that was the only positive from Montreal that game. Guess what, they didn't score in that sequence, and you're blaming Huet?

I did was just able to watch the early part of the game, other than that it was looking up from homework now and again. Perhaps it was wishful thinking when i thought htey were playing well. Either way I would be pleased as punch for Huet to play well, the two first goals just seemed pretty effortless, but perhaps it was just like you said, that the defense weren't there for him. I am just hoping they continue to win games, and for my benefit, while Huet is in net.

Flyers played well today even though we did lose in overtime. Defintely looking like they are ready to play to win again. Pretty confident Saturdays game in Ottawa will be as it always is against the Senators, tough and the winner will put up a big fight for the W. Can't wait to watch it. Senators have a strong squad and I'm too excited to see how the Flyers fair this time. :)

A loss for Ottawa is a Win for Montreal! hopefully the Flyers do it up.

I was wondering about Ovechkin... How long does his contract go with the Capitals and does anyone think he will try to get out of Washington?

His contract is up at the end of this season, but he's still a restricted free agent. Whoever signs him (assuming he'll get $5M+) would have to fork over 5 1st round draft picks as compensation.

Apparently he turned down the same contract Crosby signed with the Pens. I think 3-4yrs at $7.5M

He needs to stay in DC. He's the only person thats putting butts in the seats. But on the other hand, he needs to go to a winning team so he can become a great player.

I personally think he will move on. Yeah it sucks for Washington that they will lose their best player but if he wants a shot at the stanley cup he will have to move. I'd like to see him move west, pair him up with Stastny and then see what happens :D

So I was at the Saturday night Kings v. Avs game... It was awesome. It's great being a minority fan because when the home team scores there's a wall of people standing up around you, but when your team scores it's just you and a bunch of random other people and you're the one making the noise, not getting lost in it. I love it. I was all decked out in my Alt Home Avs jersey and a hat. I'm surprised nobody shot me :o

Hahaha that was cool. I'm surprised Gaborik didn't re-injure his groin on that. It seems like his groin is made of glass!
