The best way I can think of to describe last night's game is a dog's dinner. That's a common British expression to describe a mess, a bit of this and a bit of that all mixed in together. Some of the Habs' goals were downright ugly, with the exception of Maxime Lapierre. I guess having his Siamese twin Gui surgically removed seems to have set Max free to pick up where he left off last season.
You have to give the Habs full marks for effort and heart, and especially to Pricey, Hammer, Cammy and Pleks. These four guys are the glue that's holding this group together, if any of them go down we're just plain screwed.
I'm upset that we don't have a decent roster to face the Pens tonight. It's no secret that I like the Pens, the main reason is they like to play hockey, there's no stupidity and goonery involved, it's fun to watch. I feel the same way about the Sens, these two teams are my favorite opponents to watch just for the sheer enjoyment of it. When all three teams are at the top of their game it's like watching poetry in motion.Tonight, however will be the Habs hanging on for dear life, the best possible outcome being a tie.
So Sid and Geno, be gentle with us and please have some mercy on our poor battered souls.
