We Got One
So we beat the Avalanche, after what seemed like years in the desert. Halak plays great, 46 saves. Bouillon, Brisebois, Kostopolous all score. Kostitsyn Sr. the hero. Koivu plays like his life depends on it. Yet the team's defence is terrible all game, and once solid regulars continue to play a lacklustre brand of hockey. The latest excuse? 100th anniversary celebrations are "distracting." No game tonight, first time in a while with no game on a Saturday. Tomorrow: Vancouver. Will the real Canadiens please stand up?
