Canadiens vs Hurricanes Top Six Minutes - Wardskala Edition

Thoughts on tonight's game between the Montreal Canadiens and the Carolina Hurricanes

  • So not a whole lot happened, although it kind of did. The Canadiens played extremely well for much of the first two, I thought, doing all the little things right, but the big things just weren't happening.
  • And then Brandon Prust scored, and it was glorious.
  • And then Tomas Plekanec scored, and it was gorgeous.
  • And then Max Pacioretty scored, and it was hilarious.
  • Poor Cam Ward, man. Carey Price is making saves from the bench, and he's letting in goals that might as well have been scored from the bench.
  • Jordan Staal is apparently now regularly shaving and showering, which makes him and Eric look interchangeable. Except, like, on the ice and stuff.
  • P.K. Subban? Beast.
  • Lars Eller? Beast.
  • Alex Galchenyuk? Beast.
  • Max Pacioretty? Beast.
  • Tomas Plekanec? Underrated, understated Beast.
  • Man advantage?
  • Seriously, the power play is UGLAY. I didn't think they could look worse than they did vs the Flyers and then they did. They look like a scrambly mess out there, although you could see they were trying to try new things on a couple of them.
  • .Alexander Semin did not scare me. Did Semin scare you?
  • The Hurricanes look to be the most dangerous (lol) of the Southeast teams and they aren't doing too badly right now. I was worried, Habs starting Budaj against them, etc. I don't think they played well, but as I said above, the Habs kept doing all the little things right. And Budaj held his own.
