MONTREAL – Let’s not waste any time here, let’s just get to the grades and get them over with:
Gabe Landeskog (D) – The Canadiens might have done the best job of any team all year on the Avs’ top line. I’m not sure I recall one good scoring chance for Landeskog or his two linemates, and I don’t think I could say that at any point this year. He tried, but the results just weren’t there.
Nathan MacKinnon (D) – One shot on net, lost seven of nine faceoffs, part of an ineffective power play. Bad night.
Mikko Rantanen (D) – One shot on net, bad puck-possession numbers (13 Corsi events for, 24 against). I don’t think hockey can be judged on a spreadsheet, but it’s bad no matter how you slice it for Mikko tonight.
