Habs 2, Sens 1.
Do you think the Canadiens should wear their team jerseys and jeans, or nice suits, in the Stanley Cup parade next June?
JUST KIDDING, PEOPLE. We’ll talk about this later.
My wife is disappointed. And when she’s disappointed, I’m disappointed. But I don’t know how to make it better. I pointed out new coach Jacques Martin to her, and she doesn’t think he’s handsome enough. Forgive her for her shallowness, but she’s still a huge Habs fan, loves her team, and is pissed that Kovalev isn’t there.
Curious and interesting to see our new big guys out there. Defencemen Hal Gill, 6’7″, 240 lbs, Paul Mara,6’4″, 210 lbs, and forward Travis Moen,6’2′”, 211. What a different look the Habs are this year from last, between last night’s game with Gomez and Cammalleri and company, and tonight with these guys. All these mixtures and styles. I like this.
Max Pacioretty: With your gangway style and lanky bow-legs, you remind me of Dave Balon. That’s a great thing. He was a great player.
Tomas Plekanec: I was so happy to see you play tonight with energy and purpose the way you did two years ago. If I was your neighbour, I’d cut your lawn.
Brian Gionta: You slick little bugger. You were born to play in Montreal.
I’m not happy about Phil Kessel joing the Leafs. He’s good, and we want Toronto to be bad. But we’ve got Gionta and Gomez and Cammalleri and Plekanec and the Kostitsyns’ and…….it just goes on and on. So there’s no worry about Kessel. And anyway, this makes Boston a little less dangerous.
Next Up – Habs in Ottawa Saturday night to visit Alex Kovalev.
