We haven’t done this in a while, but I thought we should start Friday off with a look back at the “games that matter” from last night. No illusions of making the playoffs here, but I think the playoff race is still very interesting, even if the Sabres aren’t involved.
Montreal pulled out a 3-2 win in overtime, thanks to Kaptain Koivu making a nice play to salvage the extra point. If the Habs lost to Tampa Bay, you would have heard the screams from Quebec all morning.
Florida also kept pace in the race for eighth, picking up a 4-2 win in Philly on Scott Hartnell Wig Night. Florida won using backup Craig Anderson, and bounced back nicely from the implosion we saw on Wednesday.
We’re pretty excited about tonight’s events here in the Roost, so look for something more substantial shortly. If you haven’t read Kevin’s post from yesterday, I’d give that a look as well.
