Montreal: backs against the wall

If the Habs have faced a must win all year, this is it. Backs against the wall? They’re through them.

Meanwhile, turmoil in Montreal. I said the seats were becoming emptier, and people called me crazy. Well, now many articles and pundits are commenting on hundreds, if not thousands, of empty seats at the Bell Centre each game. Scalpers can’t sell their tickets. Montrealers are slowly losing interest. Many, it seems, don’t really care.

But to the players, none of that matters. Just like language doesn’t matter. They simply want to win.

Peter Budaj between the pipes tonight, Carey Price tomorrow. Can Montreal close the (enormous) gap between them and Pittsburgh? Penguins-Montreal, faceoff in about 30 seconds. Enjoy.

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.
