After a win you should be able to talk about what is right with the team. You should be able to talk about what you’re doing well. You should be able to say things like: “if we keep it up, we’ll be in good shape”.
I can’t say that. This is Montreal we’re talking about.
Tonight is an other critical game for the Canadiens. They’re all critical when you’re on the outside of a playoff spot. 2 points tonight would get us there. It would also go a long way to making the 5 game losing streak an unfond-but-mercifully-distant memory. The Islanders are a young team that Montreal can jump on. Intuition tells methat Marty Biron will make the start. If history has taught me anything, it is to expect him to play big in Montreal.
PS. What do you guys think about the Eric Engles’ Frolov/Kostitsyn’s trade? Swap one team’s trouble for the other?
