Postgame 19 – OMG WIN (to the power of 3)

November 13, 2009

Regulation win. On the road. Against one of those “suddenly hot against the Habs” kinds of goalies. With Price in net. So really, to the power of 4. Also, the PP was great. So, to the power of 5.

theactivestick is a happy camper.

Bad news: Spacek down?

Less bad news: Ryan O’Byrne is not ready to return, but he is practicing with the team. According to trustworthy media sources… I am not stalking the team.

Game 19 Gionta love: retrieving the puck whenever his idiot teammates gave it away. Also, putting the game out of reach, although that was mostly the work of Gorges and Cammalleri. And that work? Was brilliant.

Game 19 Plekanec love: Gionta owns my heart. But every once in a while he shares it with a teammate, such as Plekanec, who tonight did a bazillion brilliant things.

Andrei Markov: No amount of chocolate pecan pie can alleviate the pain of missing Markov. And also, some of the pie seems to have disappeared. You know who to point the finger at.

Marc-André Bergeron: Surprisingly not awful this game. Oh, and he scored a goal!

Goalie Guessing Game: Well, that first goal he let in was just freakishly bad luck, and you could argue the second goal was bad luck, too, but Carey won, and Carey should be in goal in Nashville.

Chris Higgins Career Watch: therangersfan is more annoyed with Dan Girardi’s face than with Chris at the moment. I will assume all is good in Higgyville, and continue to quietly stalk him from 7 hours away.

Pierre et Benoit: Should get bitchslapped by Andrei Kostitsyn.

Also, Pierre et Benoit: Should realise that there were, in fact, two Pyatts in that game, and some of us had to get up to stir the chili every once in a while, so it would have been helpful to mention which one it was the shot or pass was deflected off of. Just a suggestion, for the next time the Habs play Phoenix Las Vegas.

Metro, Moen: Love them.

MaxLap, Fat84: Don’t.

    Faps and Fats need some help getting on track. I’m willing to drive them to the track that takes them to Hamilton.

    Missed the whole 1st period, watched from the corner of my eye the rest of the game. Totally agree on Pleks. I’m starting to hope BG signs him before the end of the season.

    You can see it in Andrei…. He’s one bounce away from gaining confidence and really breaking out.

    Mark my words, once he gets his next goal, he’s gonna go on a tear.

      Oh no, hockey is way too broad. It’s mostly just writing about the Habs all day.
