Both teams earned two wins in the four-game season series.

I'm on the road today, so can't write much, but I will say this: David Desharnais for four years at $4 million per is a good deal. The lack of a no trade clause makes it a great one. This rewards a key piece of the Habs offence, while giving them the flexibility to deal the contract, if need be, down the road.
