Bottom Six Minutes: Kaiden Guhle is the top defender in Montrealhttps://t.co/qm9IcIMDSj

Last night’s Montreal Canadiens game against the Boston Bruins was a thriller right to the end.
I don’t think many people would have predicted a Habs win last night against the mighty Bruins, who had only two losses in 13 games prior to last night.
When I sat down in front of my TV to watch the game, I immediately said to my father, “Well, how much do we lose tonight?
In fact, it’s in big games like yesterday’s that you recognize the great players on both teams.
GUHLE GETS IT DONE!

Guhle got the crowd on their feet tonight!

The 21-year-old defenseman was sparkling last night against (probably) the NHL’s best team.
His positioning, his relays, his retreats, his skating – in short, everything is right.
Guhle plays like the club’s number-one defenseman.
And don’t forget that Guhle maintains this pace of offensive production without any ice time on the power play.
Honestly, I sincerely believe that the CH’s number 21 deserves a few auditions on the massive attack. He clearly has what it takes to orchestrate the power play.
“He’s been playing like this since he made the jump to the NHL last year. He’s a key defender for us. He played a whole game. When you look in the dressing room before a game, you know you can count on him, no matter who the rival team is.” – Brendan Gallagher
Gally’s comments were reported by Jean-François Chaumont of the Journal de Montréal.
Whether he’ll have that number for much longer remains to be seen.
This is a sweet moment.
Kaiden Guhle asks Guy Carbonneau if he’s gonna have to change his #21 jersey number soon, implying that Carbo should get his number retired. https://t.co/5U8V4BcU4P

– Speaking of Guhle.
Kaiden Guhle put the finishing touch on Montreal’s first multi-goal, third-period comeback win in over a year and became the second-youngest defenseman in @CanadiensMTL history with an overtime goal.#NHLStats: https://t.co/JNTkC7vKkD pic.twitter.com/wOBqcIfUvA

– I couldn’t agree more.
And that takes nothing away from performances like last night or vs Vegas.
Fans 100% have the right to enjoy wins like that.
But it’s important to remember why this team struggles at times and what it’s going to take to fix that.
