Flyers-Canadiens: Mike Komisarek Returns and the Habs Roll

Francois GendronSenior Writer IDecember 18, 2008

An inspired Montreal Canadiens team played a solid game, and defeated the Philadelphia Flyers by the score of 5-2.

Tonight's game marked the return of Mike Komisarek at defense, and also marked the return of the killer man-advantage.

Montreal scored two goals on the power play, crowding the front of the net and playing in unison.

Every bleeding bleu-blanc-rouge fan was delighted to see the intensity showed by the majority of the roster. The rookie Matt D'Agostini got his fifth goal of the season. Alex Kovalev, Sergei Kostitsyn, Steve Begin, and Guillaume Latendresse also scored for Montreal.

The Habs fans waited a long time to finally see a glimpse of what this team is capable of. A little consistency—being intense and wanting to be first on loose pucks—is the only missing piece of the puzzle.
