Halak Getting Some Respect

from Jack Todd of the Montreal Gazette,

Somewhere in the final period in Philadelphia Friday night, Jaroslav Halak might have won what has eluded him for so long in this town:

A little respect.

Here he was in a critical, four-point game against the hated Flyers, on the road in Philly where the Canadiens have never fared well. His teammates were beaten, sagging so badly they managed only three shots on net in the third period.

Shot by shot, save by save, Halak scrapped and battled and fought to preserve that 1-0 lead in front of a braying, hostile crowd.

Against all odds, Halak pulled it off. Won that game with the absolute minimum of offensive support.
