While he had me worried with a couple of bad nights late last week, what can you say about a goalie who racks up two shutouts in the first round? Or about a guy like our Spiritual Leader of the Moment who, after scoring three goals all season, racks up two goals in his first playoff series? And how about Mark Streit scoring a sweet, sweet goal while playing with a sore hip or the nails-wish-they-were-this-tough Captain K returning to his playmaking ways while skating on a broken foot? And the brothers Kostitsyn? And Steve "he's here, he's there, he's everywhere" Begin? What can you say but Vive les Habitants!
A note to my fellow fans in Montreal: I know it was a tense series, but this was only the opening round. Calm down, or the finals are going to have to be played under martial law.
