Notes on the third and OT:
-I don't know about that Taylor Hall. He seems kind of disrespectful to me. Somebody might do something to him.
-Man, when you can't clear the puck against the scrambly Edmonton offence, you know your D's got puck-handling issues.
-Gill's not having a stellar night tonight.
-Stellar job by the ref on the Cammy trip to lead to the Oiler shorty. Brutal.
-It's not the physicality of other teams that kills the Habs. It's the speed. Fast teams baffle the Canadiens old, slow D.
-Pierre McGuire's Homoerotic Comment of the Night: "Sammy Gagne, hard on Cammalleri all night long." Thanks Pierre. Thought you'd gone "soft" on us.
-Cammalleri is now actively hurting the team. Stupid giveaway for the winning goal in OT. Horrible. I don't know what the hell is up with him this year, but somebody needs to find it and fix it.
-Price, as my good goalie friend said, could have stopped the winner if he'd had his stick on the ice. One small flaw in a generally stellar positional game.
-On to Jersey tomorrow. Sigh.
Notes on the second:
-Forgot to give credit to Gomez last period...distracted by a phone call, turned around and they "said" Gomez scored.
-These Oiler kids are going to be really good in about two years. They're super fast.
-Spacek is getting burned so badly by Eberle, he's now Cajun.
-Kostitsyn get hit. Andrei mad. Andrei make bad team pay.
-Hamrlik the Milestone Man.
-Price is brilliant as a new silver dollar.
-Crazy end of period, but Martin's got to be sweating bullets to see his system falling apart on all these odd-man rushes.
Notes on the first:
-The kindergartens are learning simple patterns this week: win, loss, win, loss, win, loss...let's hope the Habs missed that lesson.
-Wow, thought for sure that Whitney shot was in the net. Nice post!
-Oilers are really buzzing. I hate those extra days off.
-Stupid penalties aren't helping matters here. It's going to burn them, number-two PK or not.
-And, there we go. I'm not sure if Price could have had that or not, but the shot had a comet tail on it.
-Habs had better wake up for the second. They should be much more in charge here.
