Gamers to Watch

  • Jeff Petry
    It is going to quickly be a month since Petry has scored. His sizzling begin offensively the season has fully cooled off and he has been mistake-prone defensively. The Habs can’t afford for it to proceed.

    The Habs had a couple of probabilities to get themselves again within the recreation however their power-play was flat and solely harm their momentum. The sixteenth ranked energy play seemed just like the thirty first final evening and it costed them dearly, hopefully some changes are made for tonight.
