It’s St. Valentine’s Day, and the Montreal Canadiens sit tied for fifth place in the Eastern Conference.
Not bad for a team many wrote out of the playoffs before the season began.
Even more impressive when one considers that the Habs are only one point behind Boston for third. This Canadiens team is achieving far beyond the expectations of many.
New Jersey almost always beats Montreal. It’s a pattern going back over a decade. Tonight, the Habs rolled over the Devils, 5-1, after the Devils beat the Habs just weeks ago. The difference? Marty Brodeur two weeks ago, Johan Hedberg/Mike McKenna tonight. A goal ten seconds in, and another just a minute later. Great play by Lars Eller. Extremely strong play by Yannick Weber. All this depsite a press-box seat for the Habs most talented player (arguably) PK Subban.
Oh, and Carey Price? Bang on. Yet again. Almost got a shut-out. The best NHL hockey he’s ever played has been this season.
