3rd straight shutout for Habs

3 different goaltenders have had shutouts in the last 3 games (obviously one was against the Habs but still a 3rd shutout). Jaroslav Halak is the latested goaltender to post a shutout for the Habs, in a 3-0 win against the New York Islanders on Saturday. He improves his record on the season to 2-0, and is 8-0 lifetime at the Bell Center.

Roman Hamrlik scored the game winner seven minutes into the second period, on the power play. Alex Kovalev also scored, netting his 31st goal of the season. Guillaume Latendresse scored the final goal of the game with two minutes to go, assisted by his new linemates Saku Koiu, and Michael Ryder.

The Habs now lead the Northeast division, with Ottawa playing tomorrow against the Carolina Hurricanes.

Happy St-Patrick's day
Hope we have more reason to celebrate tomorow afternoon.
