After Thursday’s debacle the Canadiens are confident and the pressure is definitely on the Leafs to come up with some kind of respectable effort.
After much recent Leafs success at the Bell Centre I’m positive the Canadiens would love nothing more than dropping the axe on their rivals and assuring their cup drought will continue.
Pat Quinn is guaranteed to lose his job at the end of the year. Quinn was asked by reporters what he thought about Belfour’s season ending and he had no idea what they were talking about. It was pretty embarassing to see. Things between him and John Ferguson are not peachy to say the least.
What coaching gem can he come up with tonight? Apparently Tie Domi will be unscratched and added to the roster for some ‘toughness’. Aaron Downey might have an answer for that given the chance.
The fact of the matter is the Leafs have never been more beatable than they are right now and the Habs MUST take advantage and gain another 2 points to get themselves in the post-season.
No team is doing them any favors and it’s up to them to do it.
Hockey Night in Canada and a chance to send the Leafs golfing on nationwide TV. Doesn’t get much better than that.
