Notes on the third and OT:
-Oh boy, Sergei's hot as the earth's core.
-Clever negotiating strategy by Gauthier to put Pyatt with Plekanec. Those assists were building up way too quickly.
-Gill makes a better door than a window.
-If scientists are still looking for the Missing Link, they should look on the Bruins bench. Lucic is definitely part monkey.
-I think if the Habs make the playoffs, every fan should sign a giant thank you card for Halak.
-Great win. Five games over .500. Bring on the Rags.
Notes on the second:
-O'Byrne's got to be careful about letting his man get behind him like that. Sorry if that sounds a little bit too Pierre McGuire.
-Sergei is channelling Kovy...the good one...tonight.
-The Keep Moore Foundation is accepting donations at 1-800-CAP-HURT.
-Is Martin superstitious? He's wearing the ugly ameoba tie from the Edmonton game again tonight.
-Habs are holding their own, but this is going to be close.
Notes on the first:
-Ugh. HNIC has a choice of showing the entire country a classic original six game with serious playoff implications or the two worst teams in the league. Guess which one we get, again?
-Great to see the Olympians on the ice before the game. Makes you feel all warm and fuzzy.
-My gut feelings usually mean nothing, but I have a sense of foreboding about this one.
-PING! Pouliot the blacksmith.
-It's funny how time goes at different speeds during the course of a game. That first Bs power play felt like it was about six minutes long. The Habs' felt like thirty seconds.
-They're still booing Ryder? Seriously?
-What a nice shot by Markov. Amazing what happens when your point man actually hits the net.
-Sergei Kostitsyn's playing like a star in the last few games. Hope he keeps it up.
-I love the last-minute-in-the-period goals when they happen for our side.
