Lightning strikes, Habs win

Montreal dug out what was a key 3-2 victory Thursday night, scoring late after blowing the lead earlier in the game. Carey Price made a number of difficult saves, Montreal's defence tighened up, and the kids, especially Alex Galchenyuk and Lars Eller, played a brilliant game.

Does this mean Montreal has their mojo back? Who knows. What it does mean, however, is that the Habs' worst stretch of the season is officially behind them, and the playoffs are around the corner. Their next game is against Washington on Saturday, so we'll see if the success of this evening carries over. 

Of note tonight: Yannick Weber helped the offence on multiple occasions, and looked at ease on the back end. Expect him to continue playing until Raphael Diaz retuns from his concussion.

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.
