Cornwall ON – Newsy would be proud of tonights 4-3 Montreal Win over Ottawa. Not because they were great, but they pulled together as a team.
The came back. They fought; they got their act together and they got the W.
And that’s what winning hockey is a about. You win as a team and you lose as a team.
And that’s what life’s about, but sadly not enough people live that motto.
Tonight the Habs did. Carey Price game up a couple bad goals and was showing a top side glove weakness and then made a big glove save on a 2 on 1 which turned the momentum.
Tomas Plekanec scored the go ahead goal and the rest is another chapter in a tale that hopefully will end in another strong play off run.
The score did not belie the reality of the game. Montreal out classed and out played the Sens out shooting Ottawa 40-19.
8 Shots were from Mike Cammalleri who was held off the score board.
