The Upper Canadien

March 24th Massacre

That was brutal. Wow. Not what I expected. I’m not even sure the Habs were there.

Did that actually happen? Was it all a dream?

And to top it all off, my NCAA favourites also went down. Duke is history.

And it’s not even the weekend yet. How am I supposed to recover?

The Canadiens were outplayed left, right, up, down. Probably, literally, the worst game of hockey I have ever watched.

Can they recover? Well, at least things get easier with a game against Washington on Saturday.


At least I learned one thing: I will be staying in the finance business, because prognostication is not my forte.

Unless you are a Duke alum, you will not be forgiven for that comment smile

Rooting for Duke is like rooting for the house in blackjack.

The drubbing the Habs took last night has all the signs of a difference-maker going into the playoffs…and I don’t mean that in a positive way.

I’m not quite sure I’ve seen one NHL team man-handle another NHL team like that. I’m sure it has happened, but on a personal sense it’s a first for me, and I’ve watched a ton of NHL games.

The Habs are only a few days removed from pounding a team in similar fashion. No reason to worry yet!

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.
