Over the years the Montreal Canadiens have provided us with magical names – Howie Morenz, Maurice Richard, Jean Beliveau, Guy Lafleur, Andreas Engquist, and Brendan Nash.
And tonight, both Engqvist and Nash came through with a big goal apiece, along with Dustin Boyd and Ryan White, and the Habs even their preseason record at two wins, two losses with a solid 4-3 game over Guillaume Latendresse and his Minnesota Wild.
Alex Auld in nets stopped 11 of 14 shots.
It’s a nice win. It calms the natives. I’m sure it makes the players feel good. For 24 hours at least, Montreal must be a joyous city to be in. For 24 hours at least.
Florida Monday night at the Bell.
Very emotional segment on Battle of the Blades with Russ Courtnall telling us about his father taking his own life when Russ was 12.
