Woke up to read that Peter Budaj will be in nets for the Habs tonight in Ottawa. How great would it be if he was sensational and helped keep the ball rolling.
I was thinking about something late last night. I said yesterday that with VCRs and PVRs, I’ve spent years avoiding the scores while at work and recording games, and those who would tell me the outcomes because they thought they were being funny should be sent to a Russian Gulag.
Approximately 30 minutes before the drop of the puck last night, all emails and comments stopped. But I wasn’t talking about you. I don’t even turn on the computer until after the game. And if it’s a Russian Gulag with the mosquitoes and 60-below you’re worried about, don’t. I think they’re all closed now. Dissidents and undesirables are now sent to Boston.
I still haven’t forgiven those long-time Canadiens fans who decided to become Sens fans when their city was awarded the team in the early 90s, so a Habs win in Ottawa is always special. Kind of an extra flavour, like onions in a grilled cheese.
