    Ugh and Zach Aston Reese who had 3 points in 2 preseason games and was a +2 is AHL bound while Sprong who had 1 point and was a -1 in 4 games is still in the NHL. Unless Sprong really steps things up I see him being traded before the season is over given he's on a 1 way deal and has never performed up to expectations at the NHL level.

    Montreal not winning that game in the third was weird. Outplayed the Leafs completely.

    But I'll take the win in OT.

    Opportunistic talent beat out group work ethic... Very happy with the way they played and Price looked very good :fever:

    Caps beat Bruins 7-0 :flame:

    Yeah did Raask even show up, or did they just play without a goalie :lol:

    I am expecting them to beat the Pens tonight since there were significant lineup changes to the team and it seems like the Pens usually take a bit to get their crap together at the beginning of the season...

    We always play like shit against the Caps, like, horrendously bad. It's like being a Montreal fan and seeing your team collapse as soon as the skates hit the ice, except when those games end, there are others that we'll win.

    Also looks like Marchand is drinking the same water as Domi, taking out Eller the way he did.

    Seriously though, great game by the Habs they just outworked the Pens and exploited every mistake while playing strong in their own zone.

    Murray didn't look that bad tonight, I would put more blame on the quality of the turnovers.

    Habs this season make me think they are a younger version of last year's VGK; they will outskate teams and forecheck. The only question I have is how well conditioned are they to do this for a whole season?

    Yeah the defense is making some BAD turnovers in front of Murray, but 11 goals in 2 games isn't good regardless and he had a sub-.900 save percentage in both games. I suspect it is going to become painfully obvious that Murray is an average goaltender at best, and that the Pens have not fixed their defensive problems. I'm hoping to see Riikola get a shot next game since he was amazing in training camp.

    Un freaking believable... Murray is out with a concussion after being injured Monday in practice :facepalm:

    That's also his third concussion and he is only 24...
