While all those talking heads on TSN will be talking their heads off on TSN, I for one will be thinking about tonight’s game against the Sabres.
The good news is that the Habs are looking good right now. To further make things nice, the Sabres are without their good goalie after he suffered an ankle injury that may or may not have been done on purpose by the Rangers.
The news we really hope is good…..With Halak out with the flu (take a freaking flu shot!!!!), Price will get the start tonight. I’m really hoping that he’ll come out and prove all his critics wrong by giving a really good performance tonight. I think he can do it. I mean, whether or not his path here has been relatively easy, you don’t become a goalie in the NHL simply because someone told someone that you’re good. He worked for it. And he’ll have to work more for it if he hopes to steal the starting position back. He can do it! He has to. It’s my birthday and the Habs can’t lose on my birthday. They just can’t.
The bad news is…. The Sabres just got back Vanek and….Afinogenov….or however you spell the poor guy’s name. While it’s not exactly the same as the Caps getting Ovie and Semin back after a long absense, it’s still not too good news for the Habs.
Hey Joe Thornton! I guess the Stars used their magic abilities when they “couldn’t handle” you guys and magically put the puck into the back of the net….(You realize that whenever the Sharks lose now I’ll have to poke fun at Thornton, right?).
Oh and… did anyone else notice that the Pens are winning without Crosby?
