Cornwall ON – The Habs haggled a loss tonight against the Buffalo Sabres in Buffalo losing 2-1 in Over Time. David Desharnais scored the lone Montreal goal. It was an ugly kind of game with Matt Darche nearly getting 20 minutes of ice time.
I like Matt, but if he’s getting that much time the GM better start working the phones. Mike Cammalleri left the game after only playing a few minutes with what’s being called an upper body injury. It’s been a rough year for number 13 after a good start.
Buffalo out shot Montreal 39-31. A few good bounces could’ve changed the game for both teams.
Ottawa lost a nail biter 2-1 in the shoot out to Anaheim, and Boston stretched their lead over Montreal by beating Carolina again3-2; Philly beat Washington 3-2; Pittsburgh pecked the Wings 4-1; Tampa got a much needed win over Columbus 3-2; St. Louis crowned the Kings 2-1; Colorado edged Vancouver 4-3; Nashville scored early and often beating Phoenix 5-2; and Minnesota defeated Edmonton 4-1.
A lot of trade buzz, but other than Ben Eager moving over from Atlanta to San Jose for a 5th and St. Louis losing Kyle Wellwood on waivers not much is happening. Read about Simmonds being sniffed by the Habs and that would be a very interesting player to be inserted into this teams template. Interesting indeed. Now what would it take to get him is the big question???
