Hell hath froze over, or at least it appears to be chilly down there, now that the Habs have successfully knocked off both the Caps and Pens in the first two rounds.
And congrats to the team for doing so. Both series were well-earned victories.
Where it starts to get chilly in a normally hot spot is when we’re all bombarded by Habs fans, coming out of the woodwork like termites, all swarming to tell everyone that will listen that they knew the Habs had it in them to win both series. Right….
Whenever the Leafs win a series or two, from what I remember at least, we brag a bit. We celebrate (without the obligatory rioting that Habs fans seem to always pull off downtown Montreal). And then Habs fans are right there to jeer us in our victory. Happens every time.
I applaud Montreal for how far they’ve come, I really do. Or at least I marvel at how well Halak has played, at least. But what bothers me is the idiotic Habs fans, especially those who claim to have known that the team would get this far, that go overboard in their celebration. The rioting puts it over the top.
Enjoy the wins, but please… Do us all a favour and turn off the obnoxious verbal diarrhea tap and violence. You’re still a very long way from hoisting Lord Stanley, not that there’s any real chance of that happening anyway…
