Not since Espo in 1970 has a rookie hit ten shutouts.
While a win over the Lightning doesn't mean a parade is imminent, this is a huge win for the Habs:
* A win over a team they've struggled with this season gives me a little confidence for any potential run-in with the Bruins. I know that sounds more like a preview for Wrestlemania than the playoffs, but, I can dream, can't i?
* They shouldn't have blown the lead, but they didn't roll over and play dead after Tampa's comeback.
* This ties into my above point, but surely the Habs had their eyes on the out-of-town scoreboard tonight, and still won to keep pace with the Panthers.
I'm sick like hell of pulling for the Sabres, but I may have to once more to satsify a bunch of small bets some buddies and I made. In fact, it could benefit me if they played like hell Friday night and ran on fumes at the Bell Centre Saturday. Baby steps, though.
Hey if they win one more, that's a winning streak!
