    Good tune up win!

    PP needs some work, Tavares and Kerfoot lines looked great. PK as well.

    Also, thank you to whomever it was that repaired Morgan Rielly. Tavares also skating noticeably better.

    Tavares back to looking technically sound. Best overall player tonight.

    By Friedman's beard, it's good to win again!

    Scotiabank sounded louder than usual for a regular season game.

    I’m just shocked we managed to squeak out the win against the confidence inspiring performance by the X-Factor, and the goalie of the future for the Habs

    Happy for the win, well I was until I saw the Colby Cave tribute. What a tragic story.

    Feels good man.

    Nice to get the win. No injuries is a huge plus. Andersen looked good, the Top9 looked really good. I'd keep Robertson over GOAT, and Sandin over Marincin.

    Happy to finally see some hockey.

    Pretty solid overall. Sloppy at times but it was an exhibition game. Great to see a pair of short handed goals and some solid chemistry with Kapanen and Kerfoot. More importantly though, what was with the straps on Holl’s helmet? He looked like a spaceman.

    Robertson did not look out of place.
    Andersen didn’t suck.
    Two shorties is always nice.
    :D

    Nice routine win. Not a ton of momentum without the crowd. I can see this deadened atmosphere working well against some of the bigger defensive and grinding teams.

    Pretty good game. The biggest thing for me is the PK shouldn't be a massive Achilles heel anymore, so that's nice

    Big boys quiet overall. Depth players were good. Andersen was good.

    I just dont feel excited.....it doesnt feel right without fans in the stands. No excitement. No hype. Just weird.

    I personally would rather we win The cup when things go back to normal. Especially since we have waited for so many years. When we win it needs to be glorious. Not drowned out in covid talk and no celebration or parade.

    Overall.. Good.

    Liked what I saw from the guys that matter. Didn't like what I saw from the scrubs as usual.

    If they can play like that and tighten up the defensive rush coverage I think we'll be fine.

    Best player for me was Rielly. Best forward was Tavares.

    I don't feel we miss Johnsson much. Robertson should stay in the lineup imo; didn't look out of place at all.

    Always good to start with a win.

    Decent performance for first game.

    Andersen was really solid and thats great to see.

    Robertson - Kerfoot - Kapanen was our best line.

    Tavares line was good, mostly him and Mikheyev.

    Matthews line was pretty invisible and many shifts he and Nylander were floating.

    Robertson had a strong game. His speed and tenacity was on full display. He won a handfull of board battles also and was instrumental on Kerfoots 2nd goal. I think he should start in game one against CLB and we should reaccess after.

    Marincin was awful.

    Robertson was buzzing a bit early and unleashed a nice wrister but received pretty limited ice time.

    Rusty at times, but fans should be pretty happy with this.

    Even with folks harping on the Matthews-Nylander line - they could.have easily had 2-3 goals. So didnt see much to worry about.

    Most importantly Andersen looked fine.
