Good thing David Desharnais played Monday night, because if it wasn’t for him, the Habs wouldn’t have been in this game. The usual storyline: Habs take lead, Habs blow lead, except in this one, they tied it with 3 seconds left, and then lost in overtime.
I won’t even get into the game: what’s with the celebrating? One thing I always appreciated about Saku Koivu was his class, and his low-key celebrations when things weren’t going well. Remember him toning other players down in an 8-2 playoff ending loss to the Hurricanes? That was the game Doug Gilmour shattered the penalty box glass in. Some of the younger players were ecstatic when the second goal was scored - Koivu set them straight. Congratulations, Saku, on your 1000th game tonight, by the way.
But back to the horror story that is Montreal. Clearly, the Habs need someone to do what Saku once did, because when they tied the game, you’d think they had won the Stanley Cup. Honestly. It was embarrassing.
Or maybe that’s it. May...
