The Montreal Canadiens do seem to want to play in front of Jaroslav Halak. It’s a conundrum of a wonderful sort as you can never have enough talent.
Bob Gainey has played it textbook sticking by his star Goalie Carey Price, but the team seems to be speaking quite loudly if Halak’s agent hasn’t of late.
Brian Gionta and Benoit Pouliot scored last night as Montreal out shot Florida 39-38.
It was wide open hockey with very few penalties called. Mike Cammallieri was credited with 8 shots on goal so space wasn’t an issue. Scott Gomez collected two assists and quietly is racking up his point total.
Having two strong lines opens up some ice and takes some pressure off, and having Andrei Markov back is making some of the other Habs D men look much better too.
In Vancouver Roberto Luongo shut out Phoenix 4-0, and the Sens were prorogued 5-2 by a hot Washington Capital team.
