The Canadiens do the impossible, beating Roberto Luongo in Montreal, despite being drastically outshot by Vancouver. And a shutout nonetheless. Two words for you: Jaroslav Halak. If there wasn't a serious goaltending controversy in Montreal earlier today, there is now. Kovalev with another assist and some great offensive plays, and Koivu with perhaps the play of the year getting the puck out of the zone, while on his stomach, after a 4 minute penalty kill, passing to Plekanec for the breakaway goal.
First win against Vancouver since 2000. Two wins in a row.
How Sweet It Is.
Big rumour making the rounds tonight is an impending trade between the Avalanche and either Boston, Pittsburgh, or both. More on that here:
