Today's honorary ringer: the third period comeback.
Hats off to the Canadian WJC squad for almost making want to commit hara kiri after having gone to bed after two periods last night. When you're down 6-1 with 10 minutes to go and manage to lose the game by a goal, at least you saved face. What a sting those kids must have felt at the end.
The bad news is that the Habs are back at it tonight in the quest for drafting supremacy. The Jets play their first game in Montreal. The Habs are now 9 points out. Management is counting on the next block of games at home to turn the tide. Hey, Management. Look up Aerosmith, the song they wrote. It's a power ballad. Early 70's.
The Jets are a point behind the 8th place Devils - so yes, they're the better team and the Habs go into pretty much every game as the clear underdog the rest of the way.
Mitt Romney won the GOP Iowa Caucus last night. This means that when the Habs play Romney, they'll be the underdog in that one too. Amazing that Romney beat Richie Sambora by just 8 votes in what was the closest race ever in a Republican presidential contest.
