HABit: Bruins fall to Montreal again

The Montreal Canadians got their first home win in 3 games, of course by beating the Bruins. The Bs looked like they were going to make it a 4-2 road trip taking a 2-0 lead by the end of the 1st on goals by P.J. Axelsson and Brian Leetch, but the Habs tied it up 2-2 on goals from Michael Ryder and Saku Koivu in the 2nd.

Brian Leetch assisted on Nick Boynton's goal in the second, making it 3-2 Bruins, to become the seventh defenseman, and 69th player, in NHL history to reach 1,000 career points.

In the 3rd Mike Ribeiro got a Power Play goal followed by Alexander Perezhogin's Power Play goal to put Montreal ahead for good 4-3.

Montreal Goalie Jose Theodore made 20 saves, including holding off the Bs 5-on-3 advantage for 1:13 shortly after Perezhogin's goal.

Once again the Bruins couldn't get it done against Theodore and the Habs. Including the 2004 playoffs, the Canadians have won 5 strait against the Bruins (3 in a row to win the 7 game series and the first two of the 2005-06 season).

On the plus side it was good to see former Montreal Expos mascot take the ice now with the Canadians. Expos greats Andre Dawson and Gary Carter were on hand as the Canadians introduced Youppi, the furry orange mascot prior to the game. Youppi didn't make the trip with the rest the team to Washington.

Your Uncle Buck almost didn't see the game. When it was time to drop the puck UB turned to NESN and saw fishing, then turned to WSBK and saw some African American sitcom...then it hit UB...the game is on OLN the Outdoor Life Network. The whole broadcast looked like it was being broadcast on Canadian public access. The news desk used in between periods looked like it was pulled from a 1982 newsroom in Minnesota. And they must have given some stiff in the front row a camera because the video was all over the place...nice job hoseheads...

...and now back to the game eh.
