4-1 Win In Ottawa Puts Habs In Playoff Spot. Now They Have To Stay There

I’ve decided to do something different tonight. I’ve decided not to bother with all the ins-and-outs of what happened in the big 4-1 win in Ottawa tonight.
You know how it all played out. You saw the shots on goal margin, the great saves by Halak, the nice Plekanec-to-Cammalleri goal and the pinball shot by Marc-Andre Bergeron. You saw Scott Gomez become a huge penalty-killer, and you hardly saw Alex Kovalev in his Sens uniform because it was one of those nights when Alex decided to go on coffee break..
He’s been known to do that on occasion.
You also saw Jaroslav Spacek go down with an injury, and pretty soon if these parade of injuries don’t stop, I’m going back to church and start asking questions. I’m owed. Owed big time. I was an altar boy for goodness sakes. All those early mornings during summer holidays when I had to get up at the crack of dawn to do the altar-boying. That time when I set myself on fire lighting candles. Or how I almost tripped several times in front of a church full of people because my robe was too long.
Hey, Man upstairs. I’m owed. So enough with the injuries already.
I also read the other day about a crazy trade rumour involving Edmonton and Montreal. Whoever wrote the story (in a CBC article) came up with this: Sheldon Souray and Andrew Cogliano for both Kostitsyn’s. This is probably just a silly rumour but I’m mentioning it because in this blog, it’s all the news that’s fit to print.
To all the Habs fans who became Senators supporters and tossed the Habs aside like an old oily rag when Ottawa got a team, please don’t cry in your corn flakes.
Habs were outshot 46-27. I have no comment on this, except good for Jaroslav Halak.
Thursday, Pittsburgh’s in Montreal.
