I didn’t see the game because I’m in the middle of nowhere that took me a while to get to. But when it got dark and headlights began to give me headaches, I found a motel and stopped. And I asked the lady at the front desk, “do you have internet?” and she did, and so I plugged in, went to the scoreboard, and there it was. The Canadiens beat those mighty San Jose Sharks 3-2.
So it means four in a row. It means Florida and Buffalo both lost. And it means Josh Gorges scored another goal, his third of the campaign. Jaroslav Halak stopped 46 shots and deserves a raise. And the Habs are now only one point behind the fourth-place Flyers. Life is good. It’s a fine Saturday night on the road to somewhere.
I’m sorry I can’t say more. But I didn’t see the game. I can’t say much if I didn’t see any.
Canadiens don’t play again until Wednesday when they travel to Buffalo. I’m sure the guys are feeling much better about things, although they continue to be outshot in a slightly embarrassing fashion.
If Josh Gorges can score 43 more goals in the next 19 games, he will tie Bobby Orr’s 1974-75 output of 46 goals.
