Habs vs. Devils - Them Again Edition

Notes on the third:

-I don't love the Ole song, but hearing it New Jersey is sweet.

-Crap. I wanted the shutout for Price, but you could see that play developing a mile away.

-Gomez should get the Benoit Brunet Memorial Trophy for missing the most open nets in a season.

-It's nice that there's always an extra Hab there to clear the puck out of danger.

-Great game. See? They can beat anyone when they all decide to work for it.

Notes on the second:

-Weber's making some nice defensive plays. Uh oh! Defence controversy!

-Nice for Pyatt's hard work to finally pay off. This year, he's the best player involved in the Gomez trade.

-Speaking of Gomez, he finally finished something. It must feel like Tolstoy when he put the pen down after War and Peace.

-Pouliot! And he stayed on his feet!

-Martin must be ready to spit nails at the two-for-one dumbass penalties. Beautiful kill though.

-I swear I heard Kostitsyn think when he decided not to cross the blueline and put himself offside.

-Good period. Highly entertaining to hear the Devils crowd boo their own team.

Notes on the first:

-How cute! There are two little Giontas.

-Well, okay, if they want to score a goal a minute, we'll take it! Gio's showing mom and dad why he's the gifted one.

-Eller's going to be such a good player. The best thing about him is that he never thinks he's too good for the third line because he was a first-round pick.

-Poor Pleks...he says he doesn't understand why he can score on spontaneous breakaways, but never on planned ones. He figures he has too much time to think.

-I like how Weber's feet are always moving.

-Hammer covered up for Price like a quilt on a four-poster.

-Hal Gill's ten-foot stick is reason enough to sign him for another year.

-Way too much deep pinching going on by the Habs' D.

-Not a bad period, but it would have been nice to see the early intensity carried through the whole 20. They need to keep the speed going.
