Kukla's Korner Hockey

New Jersey almost always beats Montreal. It’s a pattern going back over a decade. Tonight, the Habs rolled over the Devils, 5-1, after the Devils beat the Habs just weeks ago. The difference? Marty Brodeur two weeks ago, Johan Hedberg/Mike McKenna tonight. A goal ten seconds in, and another just a minute later. Great play by Lars Eller. Extremely strong play by Yannick Weber. All this depsite a press-box seat for the Habs most talented player (arguably) PK Subban.
Oh, and Carey Price? Bang on. Yet again. Almost got a shut-out. The best NHL hockey he’s ever played has been this season.
Also impressive about this one? The Habs lost 4-3 in overtime last night, blowing a 3-1 lead to Edmonton.
So does Subban stay in the press-box next game? How will the scratch affect Subban’s relationship with coach Jacques Martin? Does Weber get another chance to shine?
Tune into XM Satellite Radio’s NHL Home Ice tomorrow at 11 am as I join Mick Kern and discuss this, and many other things, on the War Room’s Friday Roundtable.
And if you don’t have XM? Well, once I get my computer back, I’ll be back to writing more often. Not to mention longer pieces.
Now, I need to give this laptop back to its rightful owner.
