Habs In Sunshine State
The Habs were just in the state of Florida not even a month ago, and at that time they beat Tampa 4-3 in a shootout Third Period Implosion to open things up, then zipped over to the opposite coast and squeaked out a 1-0 win over the Panthers in overtime Bourque and Galchenyuk Get ‘Er Done.
In Tampa, the Canadiens had held a lovely 3-0 lead in the third period before letting the other team in the back door, and finally pulled it out in a shootout. In Sunrise, it took overtime before the team could beat Jose Theodore and grab their two points.
So it was all quite ugly, but it was still two big wins in this land of palm trees, which set them off on a five-game streak, and regardless of how it plays out this time around, we’ll take another four points, thank you very much.
