There were several highlights in Friday’s game between the Canadiens and the Columbus Blue Jackets. which saw the Canadiens lose 4-3 in a shootout. There was a blond behind the net with a low-cut blouse.
Okay, so there weren’t several highlights. Just that one.
And two other things before I turn this computer off and try to think happy thoughts.
First, fans don’t pay to watch the referees, and we don’t subscribe to RDS to watch the referees. Or did the Canadiens deserve those 895 penalties they took?
Okay, they deserved some of them. But one in particular they didn’t, when Columbus took a penalty late in the game, and the minute the puck was dropped to start a Habs power play, Koivu took a penalty for breathing on the other player to kill the power play.
Also, the league should look into what Mike Commodore pulled. This sorry excuse for a borderline NHL’er elbowed Andrei Kostitsyn in the head, this after Kostitsyn has just recently returned after suffering a concussion, and this after all the talk the league is doing about banning head shots.
As for the game again, the beat goes on. Play flat and lousy, but still grab a point or two. This better not continue or I’m going to start thinking about Mats Sundin all over again.
GAME NOTE: Jaroslav Halak wasn’t good.
NEXT: Habs in Toronto Saturday night. Cripes, what’s that gonna be like?
