The Good, Bad and Ugly - PK Subban needs a few minutes with Knuckles Nilan
An important and impressive second win in as many nights as the Monreal Canadiens beat the Boston Bruins. The Habs are full credit for there. But there is definately some fire missing in Boston right now says Mitch Melnick. Even the fans seem blase with plenty of empty seats in the lower bowl.

Montreal - Oct. 28, 2011 - An important and impressive second win in as many nights and the Habs are full credit for it. But there is definately some fire missing in Boston right now. Even the fans seem blase with plenty of empty seats in the lower bowl for a first home meeting with their arch rivals.

THE GOOD

  • Carey Price recovering from his early whiff to once again stand tall in goal.

  • PK Subban fighting arch nemesis Brad Marchand hopefully putting an end to the nonsense (mostly from Boston) that PK is "afraid" to drop the gloves.

  • How good has Josh Gorges been? After 10 games he's now +5 and has already equalled his assist total (6) for all of last season.

  • The sliding save that Raphael Diaz made with Price out of position saving a goal during a second period Boston poweet play.

  • Yannick Weber surviving an entire night in Boston as a defenseman. He's not giving up his blue line spot without a fight.

  • A second consecutive strong night for the defense corps as they blocked a total of 14 shots. Former Bruins Petteri Nokelainen going 64% in face off circle.

  • Once again the fourth line of Nokelainen, Mathieu Darche & Michael Blunden provided much needed relief, especially in the third period, including a prolonged shift brought on by an icing call with less than two minutes to play.

    THE BAD

  • The hit Max Pacioretty took along the boards courtesy of Milan Lucic. Pacioretty appeared initially to have been at the very least, winded. Mike Cammalleri wasting a 5 on 3 scoring chance by shooting into the gut of Tim Thomas (yeah, I know, real picky).

  • Once again Andrei Kostitsyn gets no power play time. Only two guys on the team have more points that AK46. Put him out there already.

  • In 10 games supposed power play specialist Mathieu Darche has one point.

    THE UGLY

  • Thomas Plekanic cleanly winning a face off from one of the best - Patrice Bergeron - only to see the puck slide off Carey Price's skate and into the night. One of the strangest goals I've ever seen and, help me out here, maybe the softest I've ever seen a Montreal goalie surrender.

  • The first punch PK Subban threw at Marchand before quickly recovering from potential humiliation. Maybe Knuckles Nilan can spend a few minutes with the Habs defenseman. Maybe all of the defensemen.

  • Benoit Pouliot.
