Good things to take from game one...

Well, sure, the Habs lost, but they looked pretty good towards the end. However, there's no such thing as a good loss. That said, a few positives:

  • Laraque did a good job opening up some ice for Koivu and Kovalev. That said, if they're down Saturday, after the second he definitely, DEFINITELY should not be on the first line. He played 14 minutes for crying out loud!
  • Latendresse threw some nice hits in the corners. Perhaps he takes BGL's spot on line one?
  • Christopher Higgins is a defensive beast. Wow did he look good.
  • Price played well. We just need more urgency in his game. There's a difference between calm and lazy. On the first Bruins goal, he was lazy.
  • Glen Metropolit is a great defensive player.
  • Mathieu Schneider is tough as nails. The guy has one shoulder and was one of our best defencemen.
  • Patrice Brisebois has to sit. He's just not physical enough.
This series will go six or seven - and the Habs will win. That was the real Bruins. The Habs can do better. Especially if Markov and Bouillon get back - and they both skated yesterday.

Habs in six.
