Smell that? Oh yes, it's here. It's finally here! It's gameday vs Montreal! Feels like forever since we last met. Maybe two forevers. Heck, we haven't played them in our building all year. We had one game away but it was nearly 2 months ago.
Who made this damn schedule, anyhow? It's all wrong! Oh well, what can you do? At least we're getting a chance to play them floundering under Michael Therrien (May he reign forever!).Of course, I've been dreading this one since we dropped 6 on the Islanders on Monday.
But that's partially because Montreal and Boston games exist in a place outside the normal standings. A place away from the usual arenas. A place not habitated by plays, goalies, or referees from the here and now. No, it is a different place. A magical place, where damn near anything can happen - and it probably already has.
So please, join us as we travel just a little further down causeway than usual. Just a couple minutes more until we're in arenas, bars, living rooms, wherever.
