The Upper Canadien

Cowboy up

Carey Price borrows a very apt phrase from the Boston Red Sox. Time to get back to business.

Easter Holidays and family fun are getting in the way of regular blogging this weekend, so a very brief synopsis of tonight’s game:

The Montreal Canadiens have to win this hockey game. If they don’t, their backs truly are against the wall. Sure, they’ve lost two straight, but make no mistake, they are still very much inn this series.

So will they win tonight? I don’t know. But I do know that it is up to Carey Price. If the Price of games one and two shows up, this is a Habs win. But if the shaky team in front of Carey Price, along with the less than stellar Carey of game four, well, then this is anybody’s game.

Oh, and then there is that Thomas guy. He’s pretty good, too.

It’s Price vs. Thomas. Best of three. Could we ask for a better end to this series?

About The Upper Canadien

The Upper Canadien is your one stop shop for all things Montreal Canadiens. Since the summer of 2010, I've been providing Habs related news, notes, and most importantly, opinions. As a blogger, I don't believe it's my job to report the news, it's my privilege to comment on it. You may disagree with what I suggest. In fact, you most likely will. But that's the great part about blogging: it spurs opinion, comment and engages all involved. I've really enjoyed all the debate and commentary from readers thus far and I encourage everyone to respond with ideas on lineups, trades, logos, sweaters, mascots, whatever. The Upper Canadien is a conversation for all hockey fanatics.

I've come to Kukla's Korner with four years of campus radio and three years of sportswriting from my time at Mount Allison University on Canada's East coast. Not only do I not have any professional journalistic training, after five years in the corporate world, I've spent much of the past two years completing an MBA. Business by day, hockey by night, I'm a Canadiens fan through and through. I hope you enjoy reading as much as I do writing.
