It’s Hookey Night in Canada.
Your faithful live blogger will not be in his suburban basement offering breathless commentary on the opening game of what should be a dandy Eastern Conference final.
Instead, I’ll be at Montreal’s Maison symphonique listening to a chamber music recital.
Maxim Vengerov, da.
Ilya Kovalchuk, nyet.
I bought the tickets months ago, figuring there was no way the Montreal Canadiens would be playing hockey on May 14.
So I’m playing hookey, listening to Brahms while I should be watching Brodeur.
I’ll pick up the series later in the week.
Puck drops 8:10ish.
Feel free to Comment during Game 1.
