Habsent Minded 2.35: “Watch out! Killer coming through!”

The usual hockey talk is mixed up with boxing references after an unlikely fight takes place in Wells Fargo Center.

NHL: Montreal Canadiens at Philadelphia Flyers Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Anton Rasegård and Patrik Bexell interact for a discussion surrounding the highs and lows of the last few games. After the win against Philadelphia Flyers, the Montreal Canadiens have now won three of their last four, taking them marginally closer to a playoff spot and further away from the possibility of winning the draft lottery.

Jesperi Kotkaniemi got into his first NHL fight and performed admirably, beating the living daylights out of a Swede.

Carey Price seems to have turned a corner, posting a .983 save percentage over his last three games. Ilya Kovalchuk, meanwhile, has taken care of business offensively. How should Marc Bergevin handle the Kovalchuk situation with the trade deadline looming around the corner?

Speaking of turning a corner, Artturi Lehkonen’s season has quietly been an exclamation point. What is it that makes him such an integral part of this team?

Finally, how much dismay should we feel about the loss against the Chicago Blackhawks, and how will Claude Julien manage the lineup once the injury cloud disperses?
