    Haha I love how quickly the opinion on him has changed! Wish there were highlights on Plekanec’s plays on game 3!

    Habs fan coming in peace. I’ve seen this so many times. Pleks can shut down big lines. His offence is very little now, but he’s gone up against Crosby and beat him. He’s gone up against Ovie and beat him, he’s gone up against the bruins many times and he’s beat them all defensively. Very smart player and he can shut the big boys down. Happy to see him do well tonight because he didn’t deserve the hate he was getting. He’s not the offense guy anymore, but put him up against the other teams top line and decent wingers and he will contribute. What a fun game to watch tonight!

    Man, if this line looks this good in Game 4, we could run some serious depth when Kadri returns. Something like this would be nasty:

    Hyman - Matthews - Nylander
    Marleau - Plekanec - Marner
    Johnsson - Kadri - Kapanen
    JVR - Bozak - Brown

    To be fair, he hasn’t been all that useful.

    But FINALLY!!

    He redeemed himself big time tonight. He got under Bergeron's skin really badly to the point where Bergeron couldn't finish a shift without taking a run at him.

    That inner hate came out when he got that Bergeron/Marchand matchup. Ignited the fire within.

    And then sometimes one of the best lines in the League.

    Finally, he is playing the way we expected.
    Honestly, I think the best way to use him is with players that can hold on to the puck. It really helps his game bc he is no longer chasing around blocking passes or shots.
    Hate to say it but Leo was dragging him down.

    Well, He showed us something tonite. I mean we heard about it,but hadn't seen it! I could get used to seeing more of that. Bergeron and Marchand clearly don't like it! And they gotta be aware of Marner to boot!

    Does Plekanec deserve to be one of the three stars of the game? If so, which?

    Hey he did great tonight but also at least we can't say that we lost the first two because of him. Everyone failed us in games 1 and 2.

    Glad to see that Plekanec finally had a good game. Hopefully he keeps up the good work and helps you guys down the stretch.

    He clearly doesn’t like the Dirty Bruins.
