Habs GM and now Head Coach Bob Gainey won in his debut game back behind the bench as the Canadians beat Edmonton 4-3 in OT.
Captain Saku Koivu led the way with 2 goals. It was a nice game. They weren’t blown out shotwise; Gregory Stewart had a fight; Chris Higgins took six shots with no goals; and Carey Price was solid enough to win.
Alex Tanguay and Matt Schneider also had impact nights. I’m sure Bob isn’t too unhappy with the evening.
That Dog Alex Kovalev failed to put a point up on the boards though. Wonder how long he’ll do that before Bob sends him to his room without cookies again?
