Habs try to end four game losing streak vs. Hurricanes

My little rant about last night is over on SeSo. See if you concur.

vs. Montreal
The Canenvy bitterness cup runeth over again tonight. First round opponents, the Montreal Canadians make the trek back to Raleigh with vengance on their minds. That crap works pretty good for Sabre-fan. Bitterness, the endless quest for retribution and down comforters keep Buffaslug fan alive.

Saku Koivu says he's not bitter about the Justin Williams high stick in game three. Let's see how the Habs man up vs. Justin tonight. I expect John Grahame to be in nets tonight. Cam Ward has earned a night off. Cristobal Huet is slated to play goal for the Habs tonight. Good...I need the fantasy points.

Note to Habs - The Thrash tried the physical intimidation thingy last night. It didn't work.

Final thought: How about Mike Commodore last night? That has to be the best near miss I've ever seen. He grazed "Kovvy" at the blueline and ended up vaulting into the bench. Like the way he stepped up for his pards last night. Ditto Scott Walker.

I'll comment over there as well, but I am pretty sick of the goons that are the Thrashers, plus the announcing tandem of Elliot/Dellacamera.

Um...Cam Ward was knocked down by a Thrasher - he was not pushed.

The junk that went on the end of the game was abysmal. Good for rivalry and fan participation, but it could get ugly.

Hartley is a disgrace. This isn't isolated and it's not just Carolina. His players goon it up pretty frequently.

By the way, nice new digs

With the second paragraph, add:

"and the officials blew the call. They can't take it when the other teams fight back."

Just wanted to clarify. ;-)

For you Caniacs out there, PB is a Tampa Bay Lightning fan transplant living in AZ. Thus he has no great love for the Thrash either. He and I are trying find ways to become Coyotes fans. It's been difficult.

PS, Thanks David.
