NHL
Montreal CANADIENS 6 Tampa Bay LIGHTNING 2

yeah, that's right! 6-fucking-2.
we're in eighth place right now, the last spot for the playoffs, and Tampa is in seventh. they were 4 points ahead of us before tonight's game. now they're at 2 with an extra game played :)

Chris Higgins scored after only 12 seconds of play :) he also scored the second goal of the game later on in the first period. then, after a long bout of penalties, both teams couldn't get a handle on anything. later on, after Tampa finally got a couple of pucks in to make it 2-2, Zednik, Ribeiro, Kovalev, and Bulis scored in the third. needless to say, it was a bit humiliating for the Lightning; but awesome for our Habs :) the Habs have had a habit of losing leads in the third this season. actually, they made it their life's work. now we're 3 and 0 after the Olympic break. keep 'em coming, boys. one at a time. oh, and Théo? take your time resting up. Huet is steady as hell, doing a phenomenal job in net.
