Les Canadiens de Montreal vs. The Detroit Red Wings

My second favorite team in all of hockey is the Montreal Canadiens.

I was probably attracted to them because of the way Dann Gallivan called the game.

 

 

OK, enough memories, time for the big game tonight.

Divisional game, check.

A four point game, check

Carey Price is (0-2-0, 5.74, .820 in last 2) and has given up 4 or more goals a game in each of his last 5 or 6 road games, check

So why not win tonight Detroit? check

Key game, Montreal fans will be in the house, good start is important and let's get the PP moving.

It's a live blog bitches!

As an added benefit for those who have arrived early or really for anyone, watch the highlights when the Habs last played at the Joe on 12/10/10.

Two great goals from the Wings, remember them?

I’m in. Howabout a game with the kind of offensive chances like against Chicago?

Alas, my second favorite team is no more, as I don’t consider the abomination in Winnipeg as the same team as the clusterfuch that was in Atlanta.

All water under the bridge, really.

Let’s knock these jokers down and steal two points from them. With the game being broadcast locally tonight, there will be 100% less mesh jokes.

I think that Zebra suckage in the NHL transcends geographic boundaries. Probably even planetary and galactic boundaries.

I’ll be watching HD through Xbox so will be a couple of minutes late.  That equates to my normal slow uptake anyway.

I’m all in from Gamecenter Live not on the Xbox, so I’m probably just as delayed as you are.

Either way, let’s do this!

I was born a poor black child. What a great movie. I still sing “I’m Picking Out a Thermos For You” every now and then , just to see the look on my wife’s face.

Unless you are financially comfortable don’t put California on your list.  The “sticker shock” might kill you.  The better half and me are leaving after she retires in aboot a year.  Maybe Oregon or Washington State.
