So the game's over. Maniacal Habs fans are calling for Carey Price to be installed as the team's starting goaltender.
MIKE KOMISAREK scored on a BREAKAWAY to win it.
4-3 was the final score. The Canadiens played an awful 2nd period but managed to tie it up every time the Leafs pulled ahead. Alex Kovalev has nine goals so far. Tomas Plekanec is looking like Jere Lehtinen on the forecheck.
Carey Price. He is the real deal. It's no fluke that he's where he's at. Having a presence like him behind the Habs makes all the difference in the world. Confidence with a capital C. If you turn the puck over, chances are Price will make the stop. He was blameless on all the Leafs goals.
Anderi Markov took four minor penalties but scored a huge goal and continues to look like one of the best defensemen in the world.
Raise your hand if you'd rather see Sergei Kostitsyn (or Joel Bouchard?) (who's a defenseman)on the first line instead of Michael Ryder.
Hell, get Kirk Muller out there.
Ryder's struggles continue. His inability to finish is exceeded only by his inability to create chances for his linemates. Something needs to change.
Tomorrow's a new day, I'm going to practice, and I will certainly ask all the tough questions, and all three of my blog readers (you know who you are!) will be rewarded by the extension of my wisdom.
I'm siding with Sean Avery on this whole Jason Blake fiasco. I wish we had him on the Habs.
