Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Seriously, how boring are the Minnesota Wild? The game thread is pretty sparse tonight, as the combination of Minnesota and a Friday night doesn't mix well. I can't blame anyone for skipping the game, honestly.

The fourth line of the Habs gave up a goal with some erratic play, but the brilliance of Alex Galchenyuk and Brendan Gallagher got the Habs right back in it.

The Wild are the NHL's top possession team so far this season, you're not reading that wrong. Wanna know what's cool? With George Parros and Douglas Murray in the lineup, the Canadiens are throttling them with a 72.4% Corsi and 66.7% Fenwick. Murray has a 75% Fenwick! Murray!

Hopefully that holds out and the Habs keep this up.
