Lucky, Smelly Shirt And Sergei Kostitsyn Big Factors In Habs Win

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.

Random Notes:

Andre Markov also scored.

Habs on Broadway Tuesday.

  1. Andrei Kostitsyn was amazing as was Markov, Plekanec, Halak and the new guy Dominic Moore who hangs on to the puck as if it were crazy glued to his stick. He is a real asset to the team and is helping big time to unleash Andrei Kostityn’s potential. Charra – the big Lurch was neutralized and invisible. As Phil said, the Habs worked hard and looked like the team that wanted it more. And now we’ve moved up to about 84 per cent in terms of probable playoff contenders – http://www.sportsclubstats.com/NHL/Eastern.html. Today Philly faces off against the Rangers which is great because they can’t both get two points out of it. Hopefully Philly will crush the Rangers like little bugs and then we can deliver them the coup de grace on Tuesday and virtually extinguish their playoff hopes. That would be sweet.
    All in all, this is looking like a Hollywood ending to a roller coaster ride of ups and downs throughout this wacky season. And the team is peaking – or gellin’ – just at the right time. Now with Camarelli and Bergeron soon to return it can only get better.
    Who can ask for anything more?
    As it stands right now, it looks like we would be up against the Penguins in the first round of the playoffs if everyone remains in the same position. Bring ‘em on, I say. Bring ‘em on.

  2. Danno, you’re absolutely right about Moore, he’s turned our 3rd line into a force. He and Sergei are a good scoring tandem and continue playing well together on the penalty kill.

    I may be getting overconfident and cocky again, but if we can’t get in the playoffs now, we don’t deserve it. That website shows we have a 89% chance of making it playing just .500. If we continue to play well and with a bit of help I think we can pull ahead of the Flyers and Senators for 5th place. So I’m hoping the Rangers beat the Flyers. We’ll take care of the Rangers ourselves on Tuesday.

    After all we have the shirt, what do the others have.

  3. Dennis, what can I say; your team knows who to play 60 minutes of hockey and my boys still can’t get that concept.

    Any chance I can borrow some flea powder? Maybe that’s what’s distracting them.
