    I think AM was ahead until the last 7-8 mins when Leafs were protecting the lead.

    No one ever doubted he was great defensively. His offense has completely dried up

    He was great tonight.

    I mean, at no point was he ever a threat to score. But the Bergeron line couldn't get anything going against him whenever he was on the ice with them. Which on its own seems like a Christmas miracle after the first two games.

    I was also pleasantly surprised at how hard he went after them physically.

    Take those players all you want, they still failed just like us.
    That would end the whining about the Habs needing a number 1 centre and number 2 centre.

    Yes, you wrap it up nicely. Maybe he just needed more ice time, which is what he was used to here. Unfortunately, he isn't good enough anymore over the longer haul to get big ice time on a regular basis and needs to adjust to being effective when seeing less ice. Nice to see a good game from him, he was a pretty decent player for a long time, used properly. And of course we had idiots in Montreal the last few years who tried to create an unsuitable role for him.

    He can still be an effective shut down centre. Of course you're never going to completely stop the Bergeron line... but if you can limit them it's a success.

    Fancy stats people will say he got beat in every metric last night by that line.

    That Bergeron line maybe didn't produce but they did dominate them.

    He can be doubted defensively. He's no where near the player he was 5 or 6 years ago.

    You're preaching to the choir...I put some merit in advanced stats but not to the degree some do.

    And I believe the last couple of times we got beat in the palyoffs we also dominated the advanced stats

    Unfortunately averaging 1.5 goals a game requires a .960 SV% to win

    I blame 31 for not having 4 shutouts

    Define not doing well?

    Habs were tied with Leafs & Ana for 49.2 CF% 2/10ths of a point behind TBay & CBJ for this past season.

    Wings had the best CF% in the league at 53.2% followed by Hawks & Kings at 52.5%. Winter-peg had amongst the leagues worst CF% at 48.9%
