    Habs Watch - Kickin Butt in Carolina

    Stardate Unknown

    Montreal 6 - Carolina 1

    After a game that incited boos from the hometeam Carolina crowd, I have two names to toss out that broke the game as far as I'm concerned. Kovalev and Huet. Actually, Zednik didn't figure on the scoresheet, but I felt he played a pretty inspired game as well. I think Gerber is way off his game, and Carolina will seriously have to consider starting him in the second match. The big turning point came after Montreal killed off the 2 man disadvantage, and a sprawling Saku Koivu poked the puck up to Sundstrom, who had just appeared from the penalty box. Kudos to Higgins for the sheer effort he put in, not giving up on the play, and scoring his first Playoff goal by banking the puck off of Gerber's back from behind the net...

    Huet again shone as the games highlight machine, stopping 42 of 43 shots, and Kovalev sniped two beauty goals, and added an assist. The Habs lead the best of seven series 1 game to 0.

    In other news from the playoffs, what a hit in that Buffalo-Philly game. Good, clean hit, that caught that poor bugger with his head down. Sounds like he will be okay, so I hope Philly doesn't look for retaliation. That was a killer overtime game all in all, and I suspect that whoever makes it tio the finish line will have goaltending from someone like Huet or Robert Esche...
