Nothing beats Original Six matchups on Hockey Night in Canada as the New York Rangers (6-3-3) continued their winning ways with a 5-3 win over the Montreal Canadiens (5-6-2). The Canadiens came into the game winners of 4 straight but were missing Scott Gomez (that’s a bad thing, right?) Thoughts: 1) Fireworks early (not created by Avery) after a clean hit by Blunden off the bench on Dubi led to an old-fashioned line brawl. Captain Cally vs. Bluden. Sauer takes on Nokelainen (not a fighter) and both were given game misconducts for having a secondary fight. After all settled down, Crusher scored on the 5 on 3 from Stepan. Girardi made it 2-0 (more later). Del Zotto made it 3-0 with a beautiful finish off a terrific passing play by Stepan and Artie (his best game so far even w/ getting hurt in the 2nd). 2) Connecticut’s own Max Pacrioetty scored in the first minute of the second and the game turned into shinny hockey for the next 10 minutes. The Rangers were burned by not making...

Split weekend for Les Canadiens

A reasonable weekend for the Habs, who topped Ottawa on Friday, only to lose to the Rangers (and the refs) on Saturday. I’m not one to gripe about refereeing very often, but this one was no contest, with penalty after penalty (10, as I recall) to the Habs, while the Rangers skated away with a couple of penalties that were also questionable (and of the “make up” variety). Not...
