(right: a Toronto throwback uni from the days of yore. image via.)
A night after looking like 18 players who'd never met before in a SO loss in Buffalo to the Slugs, the Canadiens looked like the old surgical Russian Red Army machine in Toronto.
Everybody in the lineup, except "Sweepstakes" Brisebois (he's always giving away free gifts), was hopping and juking. Even Gui Latendresse looked confident and dangerous. That scared me.
Said Koivu, post-game: "I think they miss Mats Sundin. And Bjore Salming. And Red Kelly. And Turk Broda. And...hey any of you guys know where I can get a bottle of aquavit this time of night?"
Next up: tonight in Philadelphia against the loathed Flyers.
