They could be the surprise of the east, it’s been said. They’re getting it done without stars. They’re winning because of hard work. This is a team to watch out for. A team with great goaltending.
This is what I keep hearing when I turn on the television.
No, these media types aren’t talking about the Montreal Canadiens. They’re jumping all over each other to see who can gush the most about the NY Rangers.
Forget that Montreal is in sixth place, two points higher than the Rangers, with two games in hand and playing hurt. They’re screwed. And according to most experts, the Canadiens have even less stars than New York does – everyone says Tomas Plekanec is a second-line centre at best and Carey Price isn’t playing nearly as well as he did in the fall.
Montreal should just give the two points to New York and not play.
Game time tomorrow is 1 pm eastern.
