I wanted to post a photo of Svenson the janitor from Archie Comics with a broom right here, but copyright and all that. Just picture in your brain that big stupid moustache, a broom, and Dan DeCarlo art. You get the idea.
When Prust and Moen both went down, I had big fears for the Habs 4th line. This iteration of Bournival-Briere-Weise reared its head in game one and now I wonder if any line in NHL history has been called the Legion of Doom because I think that would be a great nickname for this line.
Cooper can change his lines and d-pairings all he wants, but Lars Eller is going to find a way to make things happen. We've been waiting for the Lightning to show up and it certainly hasn't happened. The Bolts managed six shots in that first period. What the H?
There may be a little bit of swagger in the air from Habs fans, but we haven't been in this position in years. We have to wallow in it like pigs.
