Bs vs. Habs - Put the Boots To 'Em Edition

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.

I had a bit of foreboding about this one too. Five over .500, I think that may be their high for the season. Big win against the team I despise the most.

I have to agree with the Ryder comment too. I always liked him, he has never really done anything to deserve it. Someday he will be back at one of those pregame ceremonies and I hope he gets a big cheer then.

Please keep doing these reports.

Plekanec with Pyatt may backfire. I suspect he will sign for less if they are straight with him even with the stat difference.

When Sergei tries he's phenomenal. Why did his effort level drop so much when he left junior?

Why can't JM put SK with Pleks ?
It's like a parent who keeps pushing a brat at you -we are going to end up hating Pyatt !!
Moore has really surprised me,in a good way.
Go Habs Go !!
