What can we say.
A split decision.
A potential 6-game losing streak, averted.
A loss to an important rival.
A last minute win against a promising young team.
Shut down by a formidable bruin defense.
Kovalev benched for the entire third (-57 seconds).
The confirmation that Montreal will not finish in the top four.
The real concern that the team won't get out of the first round.
The sudden realization that this 100th year anniversary season will be more about a tribute to past glory than future accomplishments.
The inevitable worries about the coach's ability to guide this team in the proper direction.
The arrival of Old Kovy in a new doghouse.
A team who's leading scorer will not tally 65 points.
A team who's leading scorer may not be a forward.
The diminished anxiety about planning a wedding in June.
The promise that I will receive a reimbursement for 90% of my playoff tickets.
The frustration that the paid 10% will have been a waste of money.
The real issue between Kovalev and Koivu.
The necessity for the GM to make a move.
The ship, while not sinking, is not going to dock where we had hoped it would.
The decision that this team isn't worth a picture.
The bullshitting you about that last one, because I just don't want to look for one.
The wondering out loud if Santonio Holmes can learn how to skate before the playoffs.
