If they think that kind of effort will do against Tampa though, it'll be a LONG Tuesday night
But yeah. 2 points. Take'em, go back to the beach, and get ready to bleed for it tuesday.
I'm fairly confident that won't be the case.
Everyone knows Tuesday will be a "send a message" type of game for both clubs.
Rest tomorrow and back at it Monday for the measuring.
I'll be stunned if we don't see some emotion in Tuesday's game.
Go Habs Go
Okay. When we first got Vanek, I was super freaking pumped, but it was all "Well, he's going to Minnesota, so let's just enjoy it while it lasts."
I'm selfish. I want him on this team in the future, for whatever it takes. I don't know what it is, but every single game since that Ottawa comeback (hell, even that crappy Western road trip before that) I've been pumped to watch these guys play. Don't get me wrong, I always looked forward to games before because thats what diehards do, but still. This guy is the first "star" player we have ACQUIRED in years since Kovy (my favourite player while he was here) and he's putting on a show with 67 and 51. He's big, he goes into the tough areas to get the puck and score goals, and he's strong on his feet. He's not a centre, but he's the power-forward type player we've been wanting for years. Now we have him, and we don't even know if we can keep him.
Please Bergy. I know you don't like FA's and their huge contracts, but PLEASE go out of your way to lock this guy up. I know it mostly comes down to where he wants to be at the end of the day, but if you can make it work, do it.
P.S. Good win boys
Agreed, I get excited when I think about what Vanek is going to do on the ice. Subban used to make me feel that way but it hasn't been like that in a while. So have other players, but they were only fleeting sentiments. Even MT isn't bad enough to f!@# up this guy
Man, how's it feel to have not one but TWO legit first line forwards for a change? Vanek and Patch... just sweet. Hopefully we can re-sign Vanek. And I'd really like to see Galchenyuk centering one or both of these guys next year to bring him along.
Give Deshernais his due. He's a first liner minus that slump.
