In honour of the Habs facing off against the Rangers, you guys should read my Alex Kovalev retrospective piece that Maisonneuve just posted, called What If Alexei Kovalev Had Been a Hockey Player?

It's in Philly—obviously about the Winter Classic.

I'm really happy right now. But I remember the second intermission of Game 2 of the first round last season. Habs scored two early in the first, and were up by 2 goals after 40 against a higher-seeded, more offensive opponent. They looked good to seal the deal on stealing both road games coming back to the Bell. What happened? We lost 6-5 in OT and the series went 7 games. Martin has to avoid a repeat of that. I hope he mentions that game specifically to them...

I miss Gorges, and Markov, and Cammalleri.

In a game like that as far as I'm concerned we take the loser point and we run. There was no way we were winning down Pouliot, Pacioretty, Cammalleri, second game in two nights, and with the rest of the roster beat up from the absurd number of shot blocks gone awry. At the end of the day, we've taken 7/8 points from the Sabres in the first four meetings...

I'm actually confident that we can come back and win this. This team is not a fantastic team. We're outscoring 'em 5-on-5. If we can stay out of the box and produce some sustained pressure and rushes like we did in the middle of the 2nd, we've got a damn good shot.

Never change, Bugs. Never change.

Now that is a storybook ending. Beautiful. Happy frickin' New Year, everybody, where anything is possible—even a late third comeback win against the Broons.

Let's have a little snapshot of a certain picture.
There's a player in the NHL who had a strong December. Let's look at his stat line, shall we?
2g-2a-4p on the PP
27 shots on goal (1.93 per game)
18.5% shooting accuracy
Yeah, that player was Sergei Kostitsyn. He got an empty net goal last night, which means no less of a hockey mind than Barry Trotz had him out protecting a lead at the end of a game. Who knows, man. Who the frick knows.

I'm just gonna award this "Comment of the Night" and go do something else. Y'all'd be wise to do the same, methinks...
