Game 3 Vs Boston 4-2 loss April 18, 2011

Defensemen with three of top-4 grades

The Montreal Canadiens defensemen outplayed the forwards, as the Habs lost 4-2 to the Boston Bruins. The Habs' final mark of 65 was 2 percentage-points above their season average, and equalled the team's playoff average through the previous 2 games.

Ryan White played limited minutes, but still managed the game's top mark. He was immediately followed by 3 d-men including James Wisniewski (75), Jaroslav Spacek (71), and Hal Gill (70).

Interesting in and of itself is the fact that the 2 lowest grades went to White's linemates, David Desharnais (39) and Benoit Pouliot (43).
