Yes, Sergei Kostitsyn scored two big goals. And yes, the Canadiens played well on this night against the rival Boston Bruins. And yes, it was a 3-2 win that saw the home team nail their fifth straight.
But the fact remains, if Dishonest John hadn’t taken his lucky and unbeaten shirt on his road trip to Brandon, it may not have mattered that Sergei had his night and the team played well. Because without the shirt, I shutter to think what would have happened.
I’d also like to come clean. I only saw the third period. I’m in Nelson with the 2027 1st round draft pick and his two future Nobel Peace Prize sisters, and they’ve had me pretending that one’s a dog and another a pidgeon, and I had to feed and put invisble flea powder on them and so I was pretty well tied up.
All I know is the Canadiens won, Guy Carbonneau said it was an excellent game, and the lucky shirt is on fire and may some day end up in the Hall of Fame.
If you feel so inclined, please tell me how the game went. I missed a big game but with the pretend dogs and pidgeons, plus knowing that the team won again, I’m having a good night.
Andre Markov also scored.
