Two games, two goals, two wins.
With lone goals in both games scored by Max. With Carey Price standing on his head and being first star in both. With the other team on Saturday, the Washington Capitals, getting all sorts of chances, outshooting the Canadiens 36-30, hitting a handful of posts, but leaving with nothing as they fall 1-0 to that crazy bunch of beautiful bastards.
A fine few hours of solid entertainment. Back and forth, chances galore, a touch of nastiness. And a win that makes it five in a row for the Canadiens, with Price’s second straight shutout tying him with Patrick Roy for fifth all time amongst Habs goaltenders with 29.
Now it’s Sunday for another 1:00 pm matinee (10:00 am where I am), with the Habs hosting the Phoenix Coyotes.
I won’t see it. You might recall that a family-related matter was one of the reasons we had to move back to the coast from Montreal. Sunday, when the game is on, Lucy and I will be on our way to Victoria to continue dealing with this complicated mess.
But if I can get to a place sometime during the day where there’s Wi-Fi, like a pub or Tim Hortons, I can at least see the score and maybe throw my two cents in. But that’s a long shot.
I’m guessing the Canadiens will win 1-0 against the Coyotes, on a goal by Max Pacioretty, and with Carey Price showing once again that he has no equal.
