… insert your description here.
Three and a half hours before the Canadiens are to practice at McMahon Stadium, it’s minus-24 degrees Celsius in Calgary, minus-32 with the windchill from an 11 km/h breeze. Is this a good time to remind that the Fahrenheit and Celsius scales meet in just one place: at minus-40? (The good news: minus-32 is 241.15 on the Kelvin scale!)
Canadiens equipment manager Pierre Gervais seemed the calmest guy in the world over breakfast at the team’s hotel today, having packed an extra 750 pounds of stuff for this three-game road trip. He and assistants Pat Langlois and Pierre (Steamer) Ouellette might be the Habs’ MVPs before this weekend is over.
We’ll check in from McMahon later, assuming our cameras and recorders survive.
