As you’re well aware, the Canadiens host the Detroit Red Wings tonight at the Bell Centre, and of course a home team win is a must. It’s sort of stating the obvious, don’t you think?
And just so you’re clear what we’re up against, the NHL power rankings for week 17 are out, and Detroit sits in first place, with the mention that they’ve won 7 in a row, and Montreal is way down at 26th, with the mention that PK got in a spat with Randy Ladouceur at practice.
So yes, a Habs’ win would be such a beautiful thing. And yes, I hate power rankings. (Unless we’re way up in the penthouse, like Detroit).
