-The Canadiens have collected 7 out of the 10 possible points this season.
-This is the Devils worst start since 1983 but Brodeur always steps it up against the Habs. 1.78 GAA and .931 save PCT in his career vs Montreal.
P1 18:13- A great 1st shift for the Gionta-Gomez-Pyatt line. 2 shots on that shift
P1 16:23- Not much of a hockey fight. We got to see a lot of the referees back on that one.
P1 15:40- Carey Price will want that one back. Hopefully the crowd won’t take it out on the goalie
P1 13:25- The referee getting physical with Brodeur behind the net !
P1 13:16- That looks like a very demanding schedule for the rest of the month
P1 11:21- That looked like an interference penalty
P1 9:00- 3 shots for Cammalleri so far in the period
P1 0:00- The 2nd part of the period went by fast
1st period analysis
The Devils were opportunist in the 1st when Parise scored a goal that Carey Price should have stopped. The Habs outshooting their opponents 10 to 3. Gionta had the most ice-time for the Canadiens with 7:22. He took 2 shots after 20 minutes of play.
P2 17:30- Canadiens 1st penalty kill of the night. It is one of those games that seems like next goal wins
P2 15:22- Maybe Pyatt with Gionta and Gomez was not such a bad idea after all
P2 9:43- Lapierre looked like Lemieux on that play
P2 7:09- I am not sure about that call against Plekanec. The player was falling on the ice
P2 6:30- Gionta has taken 4 out of the Canadiens 13 shots
P2 5:00- Looked like a weak goal when you look at live but the puck was deflected. 2 goals on 9 shots for the Devils
P2 2:57- Canadiens 1st power play of the night. This would be a great time for it to start working
P2 2:49 – Oh well
P2 1:23- They are not helping themselves with all these penalties
2nd period analysis
There is a total of 26 shots on goal after 2 periods of play. This game is not the most exciting. Canadiens not helping themselves by taking 4 penalties in the 2nd period
P3 20:00- Lars Eller has played 5:32 after 2 periods of play
P3 16:21- Not looking good for the Habs now
P3 14:00- The good news is that this PP lasted longer then the first one.
P3 8:00- Not much energey by both teams
P3 5:45- The Power Play used to be the Habs bread and butter. What happened to it?
-Another shutout for Martin Brodeur. He has gotten a shuout on both of the Devils wins this season.
-Hal Gill and Josh Gorges -3
- Brian Gionta took 8 shots on goal
- Habs face the Senators in Ottawa on Saturday
