A brief mention of a couple of things that you may or may not find interesting.
And why brief? Because I have to go to the store and buy paint and then proceed to spruce up a room in my house before the puck drops and Montreal slaughters the New Jerseyans.
The last time the Canadiens played, on Oct. 16th, we were all much younger.
After five games in this new season, the Habs sit at three wins, a loss, and an overtime loss, which isn’t bad, although we expect a win on every night, don’t we?
Last year, after five games of the 2009-10 season, it was two wins and three losses, including the wretched west coast swing that saw the boys drop a nasty 7-1 game to the Vancouver Canucks in which Carey Price imploded in front of family and friends. This game was for me, above all others, the beginning of all Price woes which he is only just now recovering from.
The team actually lost five of their first seven in this year.
The year before, in 2008-09, the Canadiens were one overtime loss and four wins in their first five outings and managed to rack up eight wins in ten games.
What does it all mean? It means I have to get to the store and buy some paint.
