Below, the Philadelphia Flyers congratulate the Montreal Canadiens for being so freaking fantastic.
Canadiens hand the Philadelphia Flyers a 4-1 loss in game #2, with just 80 more left. The EGG line collects a bunch of points. Carey Price allows just one goal.
I think I’ll just get out the old yellow highlighter and mark a big solid win on my ultra-scientific Habs tracker.
A goal and an assist from Brian Gionta, Lars Eller, Brendan Gallagher, and Rene Bourque. Two assists from Alex Galchenyuk, and singles from Pleks and P.K.
A bunch of guys chipping in. I love that.
Eller has three goals now. Alex Ovechkin has four. Scott Gomez has one.
Carey Price played well, and if I was really picky I’d mention the couple of times he juggled easy shots but I’m not.
It’s a fine win before they climb into the big silver bird and head west for four games. A solid win. Except they went 2 for 9 on the power play.
But I’m in a forgiving mood because they earned two points, which is what it’s all about. It doesn’t have to be pretty, just successful. Like Phyllis Diller bearing a dozen cute and healthy kids.
Shots on goal – Montreal 34, Flyers 23.
Max Pacioretty sat it out due to the wrist injury he received while playing the Leafs. Hopefully it’s just one game for Max.
A road roller is parked near our place and I’d like to hot wire it and roll over P.J. Stock. I have such a hard time listening to this person. Tonight he said the Canadiens tried to play the Leafs tough the other night but they shouldn’t because they’re not.
The Habs won most, if not all the fights in that Leafs game, right? Or was it just an acid flashback?
Next up – Wednesday in Cowtown. 8 p.m. eastern. Hope the Saddledome’s dried out.
The Canadiens head out on a winning note. Look out Flames, the Habs are coming. And that goes for the Oilers, Canucks, and Jets too. Try valium if you’re experiencing stress and anxiety.
Luci and I were at the Bell today, but it was for a 2 o’clock game between the St. Hubert Gouverneurs and Toronto Bulldogs. The guys are eight years old, can shoot over the net from above the slot, and the Gouverneurs handled the Torontonians 4-1, just like the Habs over Philly.
Eight years old – they got to play at the Bell, they were introduced player at a time by the P.A. announcer, the game was shown live on the scoreboard, and two zambonis cleaned the ice for them.
Awesome – and slightly different from when I was eight years old.
