LOSER Tonight and this afternoon will be an outright cluster&@$^. I can't even begin to try to calculate who we are going to end up playing in the first round. If we lose tonight it will be the Leafs, simple as that. If we win and Boston loses their game to Washington then things will get interesting tomorrow night in the finale game of Ottawa vs Boston. So basically win for drama and lose to play the Leafs. My heart says lose and sweep the Leafs out in the first round for what would be revenge for every Saturday night game of my childhood living in Ontario. My sensible self says win and end up playing an easier team seeded way lower than us. It is going to be an interesting 40 hours ahead. Oh, and if we draw the Sens in the first round I'd be all over some tickets, so kinda hoping for that too. Gametime is 7PM on CBC. Go Habs Go!
Wow, talk about a busy day in Montreal. MTL trades Erik Cole to DAL for Michael Ryder. — Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) February 26, 2013 And then: Fever, stuffy, headache, chills, then you've got a co... concussion really? #renebourque — AngryHabsFan (@AngryHabsFan) February 26, 2013 Twitter is great isn't it. Funny how journalists make big dough to write stories about breaking tweets. All praise our lord and saviour Marc Bergevin. Goodbye Mr. Cole, you will be missed when we remember 2011/2012. Not so much this year.
Well that was a rough week. I thought they'd kick ass, I thought they'd demolish the Capitals and walk all over the Leafs again, and I thought they'd struggle against the Sabres. Damn was I wrong, but somehow we clinched a playoff spot? Cool. 2 out of a possible 6 points this week for your Montreal Canadiens may in fact be their worst week of the 2013 season so far. The last time Montreal got destroyed by Toronto it lit a fire under them and they went on an incredible point streak. Will it happen again? Doubt it. After clinching the playoff spot on Thursday night it looks like this team has checked out, which is scary. As much as I'd like to see the intensity of a Habs vs Leafs playoff matchup I know things would not go well for us at the ACC. Looking at the standings right now I'd like to face the Rangers (because they suck) or the Sens (because their little miracle run has to end sometime). Not the Devils because they nearly won the cup last year,
