Cornwall ON – It was Tomas Plekanec night in Hab land as Montreal not only shot down the Florida Panthers 6-2, but Carey Price got his first win for the team this year!
Now Florida isn’t about to cause a mass of bets for the Stanley Cup, but a win is a win.
Ryan White was an assist away from a Gordie Howe Hat Trick. My favorite Hab Mike Cammallieri had a 3 point night, and new comer Lars Ellers had 3 assists.
Heck even the Leafs won albeit in a much more entertaining game; one that Dion Phaneuf played a large role in the 5-4 win. The Monster picked up the win in goal over Buffalo.
Former Hab Sergei Kostitsyn scored a goal in Nashville’s 2-1 win over Atlanta in a quiet slate.
In other NHL news Cristobal Huet is off to Switzerland. Chicago will eat his contract while keeping their cap hit to a zero impact. Montreal did some house cleaning sending down young guns Louis Leblanc and Jarred Tinordi. Ian Schultz, acquired in the Jaroslav Halak deal also was sent down.
