If you can stay up that late, you’ll be able to watch two young teams play a hockey game in the regular season that will mean as much to the standings as a pre-season game. Of course, that is unless you’re cheering for your team to lose at this point (I am).. in which case this is a very meaningful game.
If Montreal loses tonight it will be a genuine 4 pointer for the team’s quest to lock up the 2nd overall draft position (before the lottery). If you’re going to lose – you might as well go down big.
At this point I’m cheering on good plays by my team, and bad luck in front of the net.. Its not a comfortable place to be for a guy who hates to lose, but really, if you’re cheering the team on in hopes that things will get better, that draft pick is the #1 priority.
Go Habs Go!!!????
Go Oilers Go!!
