Canadiens 2, The Wilderness 1.

On a night when the referees decided to call rulebook hockey, The Habs spent over a quarter of the game shorthanded, but gave up zero PP goals in ten chances. Dapper coach Carbonneau, certainly one of the best PKers of all time, probably spent the whole game with a stiffy. Congrats to the penalty killers and G Carey Price. But really, The Wild(s) need to go to finishing school (as do Robert Lang and Tomas Plekanec, jesus christ.). Francis Bouillon floated in his second lucky goal of the season, and Andrei Norris Markov blasted home a 5-on-3 one-timer. And that was about it as far as good chances went for Montreal (pictured: CNN's Wolf Blitzer). Notes: The Wild(s) feature two ex Canadien players/coaches behind the bench in Jacques Lemaire and assistant Mario "banana curve" Tremblay...The Habs caught a break in facing backup goalie Josh Harding, otherwise they might have been shut the fuck out...Josh Gorges played some solid D last night...Next game: Tomorrow on Long Island—don't get too shitfaced tonight homeboys Komisarek and Higgins...
