Last night the Montréal Canadiens fell 5-1 to Tampa. It was a difficult game to watch.
They will regroup, and come back strong on Wednesday. They will also come back angry – Tampa outplayed them for sure, but they also played dirty. Players left the ice bloody, and seeing that will make them mad. Tomorrow will be a very different game.
One point to note: the fans in Tampa (a city I really enjoyed in February) showed no class whatsoever when they loudly booed the visiting team’s players when the lineup was called. I was surprised… most of the people I met there seemed so nice.
