Bilingual Peter Budaj (English and Slovak) gets the call tonight in Chicago as you probably already know.
I’m fine with the decision to play this fellow. Hell, we don’t even really know what kind of a goalie he is at this point. And the boys haven’t exactly been on fire for our number one guy.
Budaj has played just four games with the Habs, (1 win, 3 losses, 10 GA), and at times he’s looked comfortable and perfectly able, and other times, just slightly scary.
Maybe the gang in front will score some goals for him. Maybe they won’t even give the puck away and leave him at the mercy of the enemy.
Maybe everyone, top to bottom, will actually play well.
Or maybe I did too much acid when I was younger.
