Notes on the third:
-Habs killed that 5-on-3 like the Devils killed hockey in the '90s.
-Kostitsyn picking up the garbage. One must think, if he couldn't play hockey, he would, in fact, be a garbageman.
-Actually had a moment of worry about Neil's eye. Then thought he's an idiot for not wearing a visor.
-Price is just playing for his stats now.
-Close-up of Murray in the press box on his blackberry. Is he texting Clouston to turn in his keys after the game?
-Moen gets smashed, and White avenges his teammate with moderate success.
-P.K. with the bomb. Hope everyone is happy he didn't celebrate the Habs' seventh goal.
-A good result, and the big lead allowed Martin to roll his lines. Hopefully they're ready for Habs West tomorrow.
Notes on the second:
-Uh oh...no penalties in the first. Chris Lee is going to start getting antsy to earn his money soon.
-Now THAT'S what Gomez is paid to do, and a great finish by the Captain.
-Engqvist came so close to his first NHL goal, he'll be mentally kicking himself all night. "Engqvist" is hard to type.
-First PP, and there's Pax, right back where he got killed last game. Brave man rewarded with soft goal.
-It's scary when Price gets a big lead and then gets adventurous with the puck.
-Speaking of adventurous, P.K.'s gonna hear it from Jacques the Knife for passing out in front of his own net.
-PLEKS! That breakaway was sweeter than Mary Poppins.
-DD must be so excited to play on a PP of this quality. Bet he feels like he's dreaming.
-The second game in a row Gill's the second guy to go to put the Habs down two men. Not good.
-If Plekanec was dying, the last thing he'd do would be knock the puck to safety on a PK.
Notes on the first:
-Pouliot seems none the worse for wear...and a great pass by Darche.
-Engqvist's first NHL shift's not much to write home about. He and White look a bit like Babes in Toyland.
-Plekanec's shot is not so much a cannon as a rifle. In the end, though, they both kill.
-Pacioretty is tough as possum meat.
-Is there a pass Plekanec can't make? Amazing. And is there anyone who can finish them? Equally amazing.
-One defensive breakdown, and, of course, the Neil/Kelly combo is all over it.
-Moen's playing softer than plush.
-Eller's looking good with Plekanec. But then, who doesn't?
-Major defensive troubles in the last half of that period will have to be fixed, pronto, for the second.
