Hard to feel anything but cheated by last night’s result. For roughly 57 minutes, the Canadiens played shutdown hockey, limiting the Sabres to a handful of quality scoring chances.
According to Marc Antoine Godin, a pretty reliable source whose Twitter feeds are worth following.
What’s a Thursday without a Habs game lined up in the evening? Empty, that’s what. On the positive side, the time off gives all the teams with games in hand the chance to play out some of those games, so we can get a more accurate idea of our playoff position by the time we face the Leafs on Saturday night.
Apparently, Gauthier and Plekanec’s agent have broken off contract talks, and won’t resume them until the end of the season so as to avoid becoming a distraction.

- Is it time for us to start looking ahead in the standings, not behind?
- Tomas Plekanec shows last night why he’s worth re-signing. Intelligent, diligent player at both ends of the ice. These kinds of goals aren’t sexy, but they are vitally important in four-point games with teams chasing us in the standings.
Yikes. Here are my top 5 worst:
#5 Florida Panthers This logo looks like a children’s book illustration in the eighties. I can’t even describe the background colour. Let’s go with fluorescent peach. I think I may have seen it in chiffon once.
Just because I’m a Habs fan doesn’t mean I enjoy sports graphics, or would ever don a Habs jersey, t-shirt, what have you (outside of an arena, that is). The aesthetics of hockey (of sports for that matter) are unfortunate. Still, some jerseys are better than others. Here are my top 5 NHL jerseys/ team logos:
#5 Edmonton Oilers: Great colour contrast. Who would have thought blue and brown would work? Simple and understated. I love the not-too-overdone 70’s feel.
