Ass Woopin Nell Carter Style on the Horizon; Habs/Flyers Preview
Scary ass babysitter's comin' home and she's about to lay down the law.
There are 29 teams the Habs could face in this league. With a 1-5-2 record and winless sheet at home, rest assured, the Flyers are the last team the Habs would want to face tonight. They are the Nell Carter of the house. Tough and scary, but when they're on their game almost elegant to watch. You fuck up and you shudder at the thought of aunt Nell coming down and ripping you to pieces. You hide under the staircase, Harry Potter style.
The task at hand is huge; reverse the slide against the pyschological dent in your mind that has become the Flyers over the years.
And now they even have a goaltender.
It's so easy to predict a landslide that I hesitate to fall into that predictable trap. But what else can you expect? If they can't get past anybody right now, what suggests they can turn it around against the Flyers?
The coach plays his career in Montreal over the next 4 days. That's a given. If the boys don't respond to that, we know he's lost the room.
