Vulgar Opinions: Canadiens @ Sabres (2-7-13) Stars and Black Holes

02/07/13

I have to pick stars and black holes for that mess?  Sigh…

Stars:

  1. Thomas Vanek – One forward literally had one fifth (8) of the team’s shots on goal.  He also played 23:56.  Yeesh.
  2. Tyler Ennis – I watched Ennis on the power play early and thought he was generally making a mess of things.  Glad that didn’t pan out.  Ennis and Vanek combined for 14 shots on goal.
  3. Steve Ott – I’d put him here for the penalty draw alone (which was so dumb not even our players want to emulate it), but the goal and assist are good too.

Unsung Hero:

  • Christian Ehrhoff –  Who played 27:40 tonight.

Black Holes:

  1. Cody Hodgson – For all he can do offensively, he just loses track of things in the defensive zone.
  2. Tyler Myers – You know, I thought he was okay tonight, but that’s part of the problem.
  3. Ryan Miller – It’s hard to blame him considering how the defense is playing, but that fourth goal was rough.

Unseen Goat:

  • Jochen Hecht – I like Hecht, but I’m not sure you’re getting any value playing him 16 minutes and Grigorenko 11.  Yes, even defensively.
