it was Thom's birthday yesterday! Happy Birthday, Thom. a fellow Libra :) all these years and i didn't even realize it.
the Habs, after being overrun for at least half of the game (as usual against the Leafs) take this one out of Toronto's hands by winning it 3-2. this one once again ended with a shootout. that's two in two nights for Montreal. awesome win. (and Alex Kovalev is still a pleasure to watch :) and it was great to see that Montreal rush in the third, with the Koivu line just pressuring the hell out of Toronto for what felt like two straight minutes. anyone who said Koivu would be shaky this season because of his eye injury last spring should be ashamed by now :) he's the one with the most spark. he even has more than he did last season. three out of four points in two nights. i like what i'm seeing.
omg - check out the picture tacked on the top story on the front page of the Canadiens website (here's a direct link when outdated).
that's Steve Bégin laughing at Darcy Tucker :) (alright, maybe just happy - but you'll have to agree that that's a great picture.)
