  1. Finally tally was 53-14 shots for St. Louis over Anaheim, with Blues winning 5-1. How often did Halak only face 14 shots a game for the Canadiens? My guess would be never. It's nice to see Halak only give up 1 goal on the 14 shots. I thought he had to see 40 shots a game to be effective.
  2. I never saw the game, so that's good to hear. Looked at nhl.com, & Halak was 1st star. That sounds just like last year.
  3. It appears that you are right. Unfortunately Gui is off to a slow start, as is the whole team. He has only 1 goal, & no assists through 7 games. Last year he only scored once in the first 12 games, but did have 6 assists.
  4. I guess you will have to take some time to read his blog if you are truly interested.
  5. Robert L has a good blog today on Carbonneau's coaching, and how he is not holding the players responsible for their lack of discipline on the ice. He also talks about Carbonneau's lack of transparency when he shows his reactions to calls by the officials. We are all familiar with his facial reactions, etc., and Robert L says that this rubs off on the players as well. I am sure that the officials are also well aware of how Carbonneau reacts to almost every penalty called against the Habs. http://wwweyesontheprize.blogspot.com/2008...lesson-and.html
  6. Yes, 1 goal and 1 assist in 9 games, plus he had a hit and a blocked shot last night. Does that mean that I now have to watch him play in the next 10 games in a row? I feel sorry for O'Byrne who did well last year, but now seems to have had his confidence stripped away this year. He knows if he makes a mistake, he will be sitting on the bench for the rest of the game, plus he will be in the pressbox for the next game.
  7. This sounds like the same explanation a lot of people made when Philly beat us last year in the playoffs. I saw Anaheim outmuscle our defence, as they greatly outplayed us in our own zone, especially that big first line of theirs.
  8. The link in my previous post does not bring you right to the stats, but they are available on nhl.com. Wayne is right about Kovalev. He scored 1 goal on 7 shootout attempts last year, while Koivu had 5 in 11 attempts. Here are Montreal's shootout stats from last year. Koivu - 5 goals on 11 attempts Andrei Kostitsyn - 2 goals on 6 attempts Markov - 1 goal on 2 attempts Kovalev - 1 goal on 7 attempts Sergei Kostitsyn - 0 goals on 1 attempt Higgins - 0 for 3 Plekanec - 0 for 4 Lang was 1 for 2, and Tanguay was 0 for 2 last year, so Tanguay has already proven his worth on the shootout this year.

  10. Koufax was really, really good. That was also before relief pitchers became so dominant. I could be wrong, but I think Koufax and Martinez were around the same size when they were in their prime. I never saw either in person, but they did not look all that big.
