The score is 2-0 Oilers, but it's hard to ignore the stickhandling and moves of Alex Galchenyuk. He at least gives credence to the belief that a Habs comeback could be in the works.
Every Hab seemed to be moving just a half cement step too slow on that Yakupov goal. Not a great goal, just a right position at the right time goal that made the Habs looked amateurish, particularly for a team whose strength is speed.
The puns are plentiful and corny from this Sportsnet broadcasting team with Gene Principe capitalizing on every chance to ham it up on live national tv. Please Gene, just stop. Jason York's commentary on PK's headwear also needs to be roped into a firing squad.
An Oilers' shutout is in the works - that is a depressing night and the terrible puns are making it worse.
