- On my third coffee of the night. Let’s hope it’s enough.
- Jordan Weal looks pretty good in his early shifts. There is some chemistry between Jonathan Drouin, Joël Armia and him.
- And again. He might sink the Habs this game. Nightmare scenario for him.
- Victor Mete creates his own chance with the goalie. This could again be his best game of the season.
- That’s either Dale Weise first goal back with the Habs or Artturi Lehkonen getting out of his slump! Good news either way. 2-1 San Jose.
- Montreal forecheck is on point to start the period, keeping the Sharks in their zone.
- Good powerplay. Habs get their best scoring chance off the rush, just like they do five-on-five.
- Danault loses his race to the net and deflects the puck in. Yikes. it’s 3-1 Sharks.
- Fourth line doing a great job this game. Their offensive pressure gives favorable zone starts to Habs top line.
- About time Montreal was rewarded for their effort. The puck bounces a couple of times and into San Jose’s net. Who scored? No idea. Does it matter? It’s 3-2.
- What a sequence by Victor Mete. He is still goalless, but playing an amazing two-hundred foot game right now. One of the best players on the ice.
- Habs blue-liner are involved in the attack, looking for tipped shots.
- 4-2. Not the best defensive coverage.
- Incredibly frustrating for a team to play well and not get the saves. Fortunately, it hasn’t happened often to the Habs through the years.
- Kotkaniemi should be in for next game. He is rested and can push Weal down the lineup to replace Thompson who missed his coverage on the fourth goal.
- Let’s hope the Habs bring the same energy tomorrow.
Highlight of the night
Uhh ... oh, Lehkonen kind of scored a goal
EOTP 3 Stars
3) That’s what sh— Better not go there.
2) Is there such a thing as a shark-killing tuna? Habs need one next year.
1) The effort was there. The puck-stopping was not.
