Two of the goals scored in last night’s game occured because of turnovers.
Sloppy play when faced with the league’s most productive offense = a costly loss. Subban and Picard each finished the game with a -2 differential.
I am not thrilled with some of the goals that are getting in, as our Carey seems to have become a mere human once again. The hockey gods are capricious, especially with goalies, and the 5-hole is holier than it should be these days. The glove, capable of such exploits at times, has been given to bouncing glances at the puck that result in ugly, ugly scoring on the Habs.
This is precisely the kind of yuletide inconsistent effort and spotty energy that has me worried.
Habs are in Dallas next, to reconnect with their old friend, party animal/loud public drunk/ disruptor of Texan restaurants, Mike Ribeiro.
