If the Habs lose in the state of Florida, will anyone notice? I guess this game could be worse, it could be against the Panthers.
I was really hoping Jiri Sekac was going to notch his first NHL goal in the second, but it was not to be. What was to be was Stamkos scoring a nice Hedman assisted goal that contributed to the misery that is this game and then doing it again. And what is with Hedman? 4 points tonight and 12 points in 15 games against the Habs for his career prior to this game. He'll win a Norris someday.
We aren't again at the point in the season where we wish the refs would just not give the Canadiens powerplays - we never left this point:
What's the problem with the Montreal PP? It sucks like this stupid game.
