The Habs always wet the bed on the game before Christmas and the one before New Year's, so this is a treat for all of us.
Could the Habs change the trend? I had far more hope that Hamas and Israel officials could get together this weekend, kick back and watch old episodes of Three's Company.
-Ari, this is hilarious, this Tripper guy, he's a king.
-I know Fouad, nobody did it better. Let's make peace.
But wouldn't you know it. They start the game playing like elephants in a pilates class and finish strong enough in the third to push the game into O.T., where they came close enough to make you want 2008 to last a little longer.

Carey Price celebrates the game winning stop against Vincent Lecavalier.
Carey may have even exhibited a pulse during the game, but our sources are still checking on that. For the moment, we know that Dr. Mulder has confirmed that Carey Price does not have a pulse.
Habs win. 2008 draws to a close.
2009 is here, and we are six months away from finding out whether there is any substance to a hype that has followed this team like few of us can remember.
Happy New Year to all of you. Not you, Mats Sundin.
