Canadiens 4, Coyotes 1.

In the Habs fourth straight win, the Koivu-Tanguay-Latendresse line scorched the visitors for 3 even-strength goals. Robert Lang also banged in a gift PP tally, his third. Koivu's assists on Tanguay two goals were both absolutely gorgeous feeds. After Andrei Kostitsyn got his brain caviar rearranged on a marginally dirty hit by Phoenix blueliner Kurt Sauer, Giant George Laraque then spent the rest of the game looking for a Coyote willing to receive a payback pummeling. (Sauer pussied out when challenged). Winger Todd Fedoruk finally obliged.
Notes: funny to observe that Phoenix coach Wayne Gretzky is as much of cry-baby whiner as he was when he was a player..."do they constantly have sand in their hockey pants?", wondered Koivu post-game about the visitors...Christopher Higgins and his strained groin, rumored to be ready for action, was still out of the lineup...a positive develop from the Kostitsyn hit was that it inspired the chronically-lazy Canadiens to play hard for most of the 60 minutes...
