What a Game: Montreal

Boston-6
Montreal-5

Talk about sitting on the edge of your seat. This one was action packed from the time the puck dropped. Brad Stuart played an excellent game, scoring twice in the 3rd. His offensive play has seemed to pick up of late and has been great in the defensive end. Wayne Primeau, hate to admit it, played an outstanding game, scoring a short handed goal, and probably should have been credited for the game winner scored by Stuart. Shean Donovan is riding the hot streak with another goal, I told you he is very streaky. Marc Savard should be in the NBA, he got about 2 feet of air jumping to dodge a shot at the blueline which resulted in a goal by Stuart, Savard also had 3 assists. Glen Murray had an excellent goal which he banked off Huet. Overall, it was a gritty hard nosed game. The defense was off tonight no doubt though.

Tim Thomas, once again, played phenonminal. At times, the Habs were just unloading shots at him left and right. He did give up 5 goals, but only 1 was a bad goal. Last night was great, it seems like the mistakes the Bruins did, the Habs did, got to feel what it was like to be on the other end. Good revenge after the Habs won with 3.4 seconds left in the game last time.

This game was very sloppy with very bad goaltending, on Montreal's part. When you give up goals to Primeau and Donoavan you know you're having trouble
