wow, just got back from the Sens Habs game. What an incredible atomosphere! Even though MTL lost is felt like a play off game the entire time. This
game MTL proved that they can indeed play with Ottawa. It could have easily been 4-2 Habs. However, I do, unlike Leaf fans, graciously accept defeat.
Ottawa was outstanding and deserved the 2 points. But MTL still gave them a great game until the 4 minute penatly late in the 3rd. Even after that
they played well. I have been to important NHL games in Pittsburgh, Detroit, Toronto, Ottawa, Calgary , Edmonton, Boston, New York, Vancouver and
Buffalo, but nothing compares to a game in Montreal. The intense atmosphere and the unbelievable knowledge of the game and players really adds to the
excitment of the game. Even though I am certainly biased, I must say there are no better hockey fans in the world than the ones in Montreal. So
smart, so loud, so enthusiatic, so ready to boooo yet so ready to sing when the occassion arises, so appreciative of the history of the sport and so
in love with the game. MTL fans are unlike any other fans in the NHL, they are distinctly exceptional. It was truley and incredible home opener; and
imagine if they would have won. Wow, way to go Montreal hockey fans!
