Habs lose 5-1, I watched the UFC at TVA Sports instead of half of the game.

It looks bad and was unfair to Smith, but just a collision. Smith got in Armstrong's way as much as vice versa. It's just how the rules work.
If you say so. I saw it live, and watched the replay multiple times. Armstrong made no effort to avoid the collision and threw himself into Smith. That was a clear penalty.
Anyway, the tale of the night was efficiency on the special teams and it's that simple. Other than that neither team was particularly impressive as a whole. Some individuals looks alright.
