Micro Analysis: Great efforts on offence undone by simple errors on defence

Photo by Minas Panagiotakis/ The Habs had earned their lead, as they often have this season. Then failures at the most minor levels snowballed into another debacle. It felt inevitable.

With it went that last thread of a playoff hope the team might still have had. The Habs stood passively against New York’s breakout on the tying goal. They had to respect the opponents sent up all the way to the blue line, but also chose to not...

First Period: The first few minutes of the game were rather listless, with a couple icings and a lot of back-and-forths without any substantial zone time. The Hischier line successfully forechecked and took possession about three and a half minutes in, but turned over the puck after about 15 seconds of puck movement. The Zajac line took back possession on the...
