Usually we aren't excited for games involving the Montreal Canadiens but it was the first home game for the interim coach and for our number one defenseman.
There were quite a few Montreal fans present and they definitely made their presence known after each Hab goal.
Andrei Kostutsyn was robbed of a Third Star selection. The star selections are like the All Stars selection but seriously, he had four points on the night. Maybe it's because of all the controversy.
Speaking of controversy, the media in Montreal are ridiculous.
There were rumors that Kris Letang was traded as soon as he was scratched. Whatever. Like that's ever going to happen.
This is a shortened recap because we honestly have nothing to say besides Carey Price and Marc-Andre Fleury being absolute sieves.
The only thing worse was the fact that Price apparently thinks that goaltenders don't need to wear socks under their pads.
We have it on good authority that Don Cherry is writing up a rant about how it's so dangerous to have your naked calf exposed like that and kids in juniors shouldn't do it.
Like we said before, whatever.
We want to hand out a few congratulations...
to Dan Bylsma for his first win as an NHL coach
to Petr Sykora for playing in his 900th game
to Ryan Whitney for getting his 150th career point.
This picture is why we wake up every morning...
