- I want Montreal to win, obviously, but I also have O’Reilly on my fantasy team so...jk - get ‘em Habbies
- Bit of a change-up to lines heading into this one - let’s see if it pays off
- Early penalty on Chiarot - hopefully not setting the tone for the rest of the game
- Lehkonen with some solid PK time and a few great short-handed chances - when was the last time I mentioned how much I adore Lehks? Get ready for another season of it, folks
- Habs heading to the PP and does anyone else still have 2018-19 night terrors or is it just me
- Tommy Tatar gets the Habs on the board!
- Habs have been dominating zone time so far this period and the Blues finally got their second shot on goal about 14 mins into the first. I am ok with all of this
- Blues tie it up
- Drouin having himself a hell of a start to this season and I. Am. Here. For. It. Habs up 2-1 heading into the second
- Blues get a quick one to start the period and of course it’s by Blais because what’s a home game without an opposing French Canadian scoring on the Habs
- I believe in you, Victor Mete. You can do this.
- Never break Tatar-Danault-Gallagher up
- Frick. Blues score on the PP and take the lead 3-2
- Ahem, I reiterate: Never break Tatar-Danault-Gallagher up - TIE GAME
- Weber with a huge open ice hit
- Tied at three after 40
- Let’s gooooo
- Gally hits the post
- Meanwhile, Cole Caufield is dominating tonight with another pair of goals for Wisconsin
- ARTTURI LEHKONEN PUTS THE HABS AHEAD SWEET BABY ANGEL
- Gallagher gets on the board after charging the net in typical Gallagher fashion and the Habs are up 5-3
- Armia is dragged down and awarded a penalty shot but can’t get it by Binnington
- Domi secures the lead with a sprawling shot and an empty netter!
- Y’all need to start that ole
- Habs win!

3) A great reintroduction
2) This is the player we all wanted to see
1) Much better singing to end the night than we had to open it
