The Habs horrible pre-season record continues. The Habs are 0 and 5 now, after losing 5-1 as both teams iced close to their starting line ups in October. In fact, that may have been all of Toronto’s opening night roster. As a result, it was a big test for the Habs – and they did not pass. So to the Wilde Horses and the much more numbered Wilde Goats…..
- – Tomas Plekanec continues the best pre-season I can remember from him in a long time. He knew he had a tough year and he’s decided to take nothing lightly this year, including the pre-season. He hit the bar in the first with a strong shot. He was near the net often.
- – Charles Hudon with another strong game. The Habs have not had a good camp. A lot of defenders did not defend well. They have had only two positive surprises. Hudon is one with good moves, good shot, nice nose for the net and an attitude that this is the year. And it is.
