Micro Analysis: Mete went (way) back to what used to work for him

Photo by Francois Lacasse/NHLI via The defenceman called upon his Junior experience to snap his record-long drought, with his rookie teammate was looking like a pro. Victor Mete’s first NHL goal It took Victor Mete 127 NHL games to score his first goal in the NHL, but it was a memorable one. Not only was it the record-long wait that made the event incredibly anticipated, and the standing ovation, but the fact that his goal was a throwback to his Junior days. Mete could have been called a proficient scorer for the London Knights. In his third and final season with the team, he led the...

It might be time to reduce Shea Weber’s special-teams roles

It’s early in the year, but the Canadiens’ captain might need a slight role change to get his game back. There were various factors that resulted in the Montreal Canadiens’ loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning last night, but some issues on defence may have been the most concerning. Two of the three pairs were excellent in terms of possession and shot metrics against Tampa Bay.
