HabsWorld.net -- 

Carey Price (A) – Was awarded the games 3rd star and played a marvellous game, he would surely take back one or two of the goals that beat him but all Carey cares about are the W’s.

Patrice Brisebois (B)– Best game of the season so far, as I never really noticed him. He was even on the night and recorded 2 blocked shots.

Josh Gorges (A)– Fantastic game 3 hits and 1 blocked shots but he keeps the game so simple and helps the Habs transition game.

Ryan O’Byrne (B+) – He ended up a +2 and had two hits other than that I really did not notice him.

Roman Hamrlik (A+)– Fantastic game, a goal and an assist not to mention his usual flawless play in the defensive zone and five shots on goal.

Mike Komisarek (B-) It hard not give him an A but the bad turnover really cost him, other than that he did have a great night with 4 hits and 5 blocked shots.

Andrei Markov ( B+)– Two assists and wonderful work moving the puck forward all night only negative was him being on the ice for the Flyers first two goals.

Mathieu Dandenault ( B-) – +1 rating an 8 minutes of ice time, not really much more you can ask from him. I hope Chipchura gets his spot on the 4th line though. ZERO hits is not enough for a fourth liner.

Steve Begin (B+) – Scored a big empty net goal but was on the ice for one of the Flyers 2 power play goals. 3 hits, he is earning his spot but when will his body break down?

Maxim Lapierre (A) – Got in a fight, although not much of one with Steve Downie, was +50% in the face off circle and had 1 hit.

Tom Kostopoulos (C+)– 3 hits but he was running around more than the other two games and did little to help out his line mates.

Sergei Kostitsyn (A)– Did not do much until the 3rd period but his work in the final frame resulted in two big assists. How did he manage less ice time then Kostopoulos, Begin I don’t quite understand.

Robert Lang ( B) – Game winning goal and a “B” rating, I know but what else did he do? He was 38% in the circle and had just 2 shots.

Alex Tanguay (D) -Is he a game on game off player? Who knows but he was ineffective tonight to say the least and was the only Canadiens player to end up with a minus rating.

Guillaume Latendresse (B-)– Did what he could and was the best player on his line, 3 big hits and drove the net well. Gui also got in a scrap at the end of the game with Joffrey Lupul.

Saku Koivu ( C )– Not a good night for the Captain although he had an assist he was invisible otherwise.

Alex Kovalev (B)– Not the most inspired effort but he did hit the cross bar and was very dangerous at times. Had 2 BIG HITS an assist but in a game like that I would like to see more than 2 shots.

Andrei Kostitsyn (A+)– 2 hits, 2 points and 5 shots. He was the best player on the ice and was rightfully awarded the games 1st star.

Tomas Plekanec ( C ) -Zero on the score sheet and not much to show in terms of creativity or will to win. I expect much more from the top center.
