After The 2-1 Loss By The Montreal Canadiens To The Buffalo Sabres

from Mike Boone of Hockey Inside/Out,

Now the negatives:

• The call was tough, and Brian Gionta sold it. But what was Alexei Emelin thinking in going for a kill-shot late in a 1-1 game? I know it’s instinctive, particularly for a physical defenceman like Emelin. But he has to be more aware of the game situation.

• Alex Galchenyuk has to learn that he’s not a contestant on Dangling with the Stars. Or a finalist in the Alex Kovalev Playalike Contest. Enough with the fancy moves and puck-hogging. Shoot or find an open teammate. He’s totally our of synch with Brendan Gallagher. I’d like to see Galchenyuk on a line with Sekac.

• I can’t put my finger on exactly why, but P.K. is not P.K. Too many distractions? Pressure of the big contract? The $9-million man should be more dominant than what we’ve seen through the first quarter of the schedule.


If you missed the Emelin hit, watch it below...

From the article:

Maybe your Montreal Canadiens will be able to solve the mystery of the Buffalo Sabres Saturday night at the Bell Centre.

Maybe one of the team’s four assistant captains will get up in the room to say something along thse lines:

“Look, we should be killing these guys. We’re a Stanley Cup contender. They’re in contention to draft Connor McDavid.

Well, there’s your first mistake:  taking the Sabres for granted.  Duh…
