...they keep proving everyone wrong.
Everyone, including myself, thought Jaroslav Halak stood no chance of walking into Madison Square Garden and stoning the Rangers the way he did. Or that an injury-ravaged Habs team could pull out a road win over a perfectly healthy Rangers squad.
But, as they've proven several times already this season, the Canadiens save their best for their biggest tests, and Wednesday night they played what amounted to a perfect road game.
I'm not ready to give the power play credit for scoring twice, though Andrei Markov's goal showed just how important it is to win those faceoffs.
Finally, Robert Lang now has 15 goals after his hat trick, and he's only six short of his total for all of last season. At this rate, he'd top 30 goals for only the second time in his career, and both those times were when he was playing on the same team - if not the same line - as Alex Kovalev.
I've got to cut it short tonight because I'm off to the Team 990 to do my radio show, Hump Night. It starts at 11 p.m., check it out if you so desire.
