Tokarski Proves Himself

Written By: Iain Carnegie, #BBBR

In what might have been a zero point night, Dustin Tokarski turned it into a two point night.

Standing on his head while the rest of the team in from of him came close to selling him out, he was the sole reason the Canadiens came out with the win.

It took the Habs 17 minutes to register one shot on goal, while the Caps turned Tokarski into the main target of a shooting gallery.

If it wasn’t for PK Subban turning the puck over at the dot in the faceoff circle during a bad clearing attempt, it might even have remained scoreless after the first twenty minutes of play.

That was one of the biggest stories of the night. Constant turnovers. The team looked the complete opposite from the previous night.

They were also undisciplined and went to the box far too many times against a team with a ferocious power play.

In the end, the offence woke up and managed to tie the game, and managed to send it to overtime, and then a shootout. Gallagher flashed the red light to seal the win.

Tokarski not only provided his team every opportunity to stay in the game, he also shone in the shootout ensuring a 2-0 season start for Le Tricolore.

It was a statement game and he made a statement with an exclamation point.

The Habs now head to the City of Brotherly Love to face the Flyers Saturday night.
