As many have already said, tonight was already a win the moment Tim Bozon stepped into the Bell Centre. Nice to see him at a game, when just over a week ago he was in critical condition. Hard to be down on anything when you have a moment that great.

The Habs came out a bit flat when Babcock matched the Glendening line against the Desharnais line. But it's been hard to criticize the play of the Habs too much since the opening minutes. They've been drawing some key penalties and firing off some nice shots. Markov had a cross bar shot that seemed like it was going to be 2-0 Montreal, but Gustavsson has been both lucky and good and the game remains a one goal game.
