I’ve got to find myself a new sport. Bowling maybe. Marbles. Juggling chainsaws. Looking for dinosaur bones. Is that a sport?
Anything but hockey and the Habs.
Note to the Canadiens coaches: Just because Ryan O’Byrne scored on his own net a little over a year ago doesn’t mean he’d make a good forward.
Is it just me or is that the strangest coaching decision we’ve seen this year?
Wrap up of game tonight: St. Louis wins 4-3 in overtime. Habs stink for two periods, play better in the third, come back from a 3-1 deficit, tie it with 30 seconds left, and proceed to lose in overtime.
That’s the wrap up. Interesting? Nope. But at least I didn’t fork out a couple of hundred clams to see it in person and doze off periodically in my seat. Instead, it was in the comfort of the living room with Pierre McGuire serenading.
Oh, you want more? But what can I say that Pierre didn’t already say. I could mention the do’s and don’ts of Scott Gomez, Carey Price, Max Lapierre, O’Byrne playing forward, some kid on St. Louis who looks about 15, and lots of other things, but Pierre already covered all that. And I’m sure over at RDS, Houde and Brunet and a cast of thousands talked about the very same stuff in the other official language.
Canadiens travel to New Jersey to play the Devils on Friday. Looks to be an O’Byrne-Brodeur dual.
Benoit Pouliot scored two and Carey Price got into a little brouhaha after some dude with muscles on his face named Cam Janssen steamrolled over him when both were racing for the puck.
There, another excellent and interesting thing for the story.
Plus!! They showed several live shots of Bell Centre employees selling hot dogs. I thought that was also quite interesting.
