The Canadiens evened the series on Friday night after Tomas Plekanec, a player Habs fans have almost given up lately due to his lack of fire power, scored with just 17 seconds left in regulation time, and Alexander Radulov, with his marker at 18:34 into the first overtime frame, gave the Canadiens a 4-3 overtime win in game two of the Stanley Cup opening series.
A big win. Huge. Life is worth living again!
Now that’s hockey!
Things now stand at a game apiece going into New York on Sunday evening, and for the Canadiens, it’s now time to grab the series lead.
I just can’t say enough about this big win tonight, I feel like shouting, but I’m a bit drunk. I’m also worried that I’ll wake up Lucy and baby Lyla.
I was out with my buddy Homer and his lovely lady Corrine tonight, and Homer likes the Habs, only because he listens to Chris Nilan on Nilan’s radio talk show every morning. Basically, Homer’s a Canucks fan because he grew up on the west coast, but because of Nilan he’s cheering for the Habs, and whatever, he’s a great guy.
I missed a lot of tonight’s game, but it’s not my fault. I love the result, that’s all. Now the series is tied. Go Habs.
