Montreal continued to rack up points last night with a much needed win over the Jets. They kept their perfect record against the southwest division intact. 11-0-0 I believe. Now they are a feces infested division, but going undefeated in 11 games is amazing no matter how you look at it. The Winnipeg Jets are doing something incredible. Something nobody in the world of sports ever thought possible. They are making the New York Jets seem like a model franchise. They might as well drop the name and call themselves the Winnipeg Boeing Dreamliners. If you don't know what a Dreamliner is, pick up a fucking newspaper once in a while.
Michael Ryder continued to make Rainbow Socks look like the president of Mensa with another 2 goal performance. You can tell he's playing for a fresh contract. He's always been a sniper but he's finding new ways to score every game. Beautiful shots, garbage rebounds, anything goes with Ryder this year.
Peter Budaj was once again the best backup in the league, in a league where Luongo is a backup. And some black guy on defense became the top scoring blueliner in the league. He also shares the lead for the top power play point getter. As in there is no other NHL player with more power play points than him. And he's doing it having played 6 games less than everybody else. AND, who does he share this lead with? A certain Andrei Markov. WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON??? 2 defensemen on the Montreal Canadiens lead the league in PP scoring?? This is a league with Sidney Crosby, Steven Stamkos and Alex Ovechkin.
Other scorers were Brian Gionta's nutsack and Alex Galchenyuck, who showed flashes of brilliance last night that we haven't seen in this city since Kovalev played like he gave a shit.
Today is a well deserved day off for the boys as they prepare for the Bruins and their newest member, Mick Jagr.
