  1. Dennis,

    Unless the NHL have a different calendar system to us here “en Grande Bretagne” then unless I am very much mishtooken, the Habs v Ruins series is the only one with a possibility of a back to back series of games.

    And it would be the series decider too. And in the Garden of TDium to boot.

    Now why would this be? Why not the Monday for the penultimate game?

    Mind you if it gets to that stage, I very much doubt if I will ‘ave ‘ve minerals left (as we say in the argot of the the native cockenee) for a mother of all sort outs.
