No worries Habs fans...

Ok...well it was for sure an interesting game...living in Northern Kentucky I don't get to see the Habs play too often...although I am a fan of the team and in all honesty they are my favorite Canadian team. Anyway I was pleasantly surprised with the way they were playing. Man can they ever hit. My mom and I were watching and she's not the biggest hockey fan in the world and she's like man those guys are mean. I thought it was kind of funny. I love the games where they hit hard. The Habs did come out with a victory for the first time in 6 games...and my beloved Blue Jackets still haven't figured out how to stay consistent and to play a full 60 minutes of hockey. In the first period there was no scoring and then in the second period Passy let in 3 goals...I was hoping they would pull him but Hitch didn't. Then in the third period the Jackets went to work...scoring 2 goals. Montreal's rookie goalie was solid. I was amazed with Huet being out he could be just the solution for these guys. Gilbert Brule for the Jackets had another very very good game...he even got a goal. He played hard and kept up with these guys. I think that Columbus got into too much penalty trouble. They took 7 penalties I believe....about 3 more than the other games. Anyway good game...good effort by the Habs in the second period and a good effort by the Jackets in the third...and I missed the first period so I don't really know what happened...sorry I was drivin home from my aunts.

On another game...I don't have a lot to say....the Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals. I have never seen these 2 teams play so I was so excited to watch it. I was impressed of course with Alexander Ovechkin, and Alexander Semin. They played awesome tonight...even though my beloved Ovechkin didn't get a goal. Malkin and Staal were a lot of fun to watch...and then there is Crosby. I honestly didn't even notice him on the ice. I don't know if it was because of my hatred for him or just because he was having a bad game...but honestly I wasn't impressed...so that's all I have to say.

I wanna give my three stars of the day....in the 2 games I watched....
1. Jaroslav Halak amazing in his NHL debut
2. Evgeni Malkin so fun to watch
3. Gilbert Brule has really stepped it up

That's all for the night!!

The Habs were pretty amazing. They hit so hard it scared me! I liked it though. Got to love the Canadiens! BUT I did want Nash and Foote to have a win over them! I'll keep on cheering for them!

Love ya,

What! You're an Ovie fan! I don't know if you saw what he did to my man, Danny Briere, but it wasn't very nice. Ever since I have been a Crosby fan. And yes, he did have an assist that night, which is more than Ovie.
