It was a happy victory Sunday for all Montreal Canadiens fans. Jared Book, Patrik Bexell and Anton Rasegård compare their notes on the two games played against Toronto and Edmonton, which ended with three collected points out of four possible.

Pierre-Luc Dubois has made up his mind. All signs point to him wanting to leave John Tortorella and his Blue Jackets in the rear view mirror. He has reportedly stated that he wants to move home to his native Québec. How much better would the Canadiens be with PLD in the lineup?

Alexander Romanov has made his long awaited debut in a Habs jersey, giving Pat an opportunity to say told-you-so to those who doubted whether The Tsar would have an instant impact on the NHL roster.

Looking ahead, Montreal will continue their western road trip with a rematch against the Oilers on Monday, before moving out to British Columbia for a three-game span against the Vancouver Canucks. Could the Habs continue to limit the impact of the opposing superstars during the upcoming week?
