Montreal composers also-rans

Jimmy Tanaka and Christian St. Roch, veterans of the Montreal pop scene, did not make the finals of the Hockey Night in Canada Anthem Challenge.

The finalists, announced during the second period of tonight’s HNIC season debut, are Canadian Gold by Colin Oberst of Beaumont, Alta., and Sticks to the Ice by Robert Fraser Burke of Toronto.

Voting has begun to determine the winner, who will pocket $100,000.

Small consolation for the Montreal team: their tune, Let the Game Begin, is available from Bell as a ringtone, and they’ll get a cut of the buys.
