Happy Bounces - Habs 4, Sabres 2

Their goals were not things of beauties. A bunch of lucky bounces helped the Habs end their three game losing streak last night. I thought about an MC Hammer photo for The Habs' own Hamr, but this blog has had its fill of parachute pants for the year.

Plan the parade - Bob's 1996-era free agent signings of Hamrlik and Smolinski finally pay off with some decent play. Kyle Chipchura gets his first NHL goal. Your first star is the boards of the Bell Centre for delivering the puck to Smolinski with a great pass to set up an easy goal on the PP, and they saved their best work for Hamrlik's winner, with an assist to the legs and arms of the Sabres it bounced off.

The sky is falling - the first line was pretty absent for 40 minutes. The defence was seen standing around one too many times, especially on the Sabres second goal. Huet looked shaky on the Sabres 1st goal. Ca-rey! Ca-rey!

Chez Parée bound? Always after a win, especially against a division foe. Hamr and Smo getting the VIP treatment.

7.5 lap dances out of 10. We still haven't played a 60-minute game. We still need to generate offence not on the PP.

Next evil evil evil evil evil evil foe - we get our first look at the hated Broons, riding a five game winning streak and 2nd in the division. Irish pubs and strip clubs of Montreal beware, the Bostonians are coming.
