The good news is that the Habs put forth one of their better efforts of the postseason. The bad news? It wasn't enough as the Habs are facing elimination for the 4th time in these playoffs after dropping a 2-1 decision in Game 5. The Penguins, with a full roster for the first time this series, had goals from Kris Letang and Sergei Gonchar, while the Habs, who lost yet another defenceman as Hal Gill left early in the 3rd, had their goal tallied by Mike Cammalleri.
HW 3 Stars of the Night:
1) Mike Cammalleri: Pretty easy here as he scored the team's lone goal and was firing from all angles tonight. After being silenced for a few games, he took some solid steps towards regaining his form; he'll need to be even better on Monday night.
Statline: 1 goal, -1 rating, 9 shots, 1/1 faceoffs, 22:49 TOI (forward high)
2) Josh Gorges: He was logging major minutes early on in the game and then had even more thrust upon him when Gill went down. He was even pressed into PP action and keeps playing steady regardless of the situation. On the downside, his penalty led to Letang's PPG.
Statline: 0 points, -1 rating, 2 PIMS, 3 hits (tied team high), 4 blocks, 25:27 TOI (team high)
3) Tomas Plekanec: For the first time this series, I noticed him on more than one occasion in the offensive zone, he's slowly starting to come around in that department. Defensively, no qualms as always, steady as she goes in that department.
Statline: 1 assist, -1 rating, 5 shots, 16/23 faceoffs (70% - team high), 19:57 TOI
HM) Jaroslav Halak: Generally when you cough up 2 goals, you give your team a good chance to win and that's exactly what he did tonight. Both goals beat him clean up high through screens, hard to fault him on either one.
Statline: 2 GA, 23 saves, 58:04 TOI, 2.07 GAA, .920 SV%
Stat of the Night: In a series where it's usually one of Gill, Gorges, or Ryan O'Byrne leading the way in the blocks department, it was P.K. Subban who had the most tonight with 6, a positive factor in a game where he once again struggled at times. Of course being a rookie, you can't fault him too much.
