Ugh....I hate having to write something along these lines. But not wanting to write about it doesn't change the fact that it happened, so I might as well get this crap out of the way.
The Montreal Canadiens celebrated their 100th Anniversary Friday Night with a pretty one-sided beatdown of the Boston Bruins thanks in large part to a hat trick by Mike Cammalleri. Jaroslav Spacek and ex-Bruin Glenn Metropolit also got on the board with goals for the Habs. Montreal goalie Carey price stopped 37 or 38 shots faced. Vladmir Sobotka was the only Bruin to get the puck by Price Friday night with an assist from Matt Hunwick. Montreal comes away with the W with a lopsided 5-1 performance against Beantown and the Bruins will go on to face the last-place Toronto Maple Leafs Saturday night in Toronto. Presently, the Bruins remain one point behind the Buffalo Sabres who were idle tonight.
Speaking of Toronto, the New York Jets came away from the Rogers Centre with a 19-13 victory over the 'home' Buffalo Bills on Thursday night. Jet's quarterback Joe Namath....I mean....Mark Sanchez left the game in the 3rd quarter after sustaining what the team called a mild sprain after a headfirst dive towards the end of an 8-yard run. No word on whether or not the Jets' rookie QB will be available to play Tampa Bay next Sunday.
The Celtics wrapped up their 4-game road trip with a win over the Oklahoma City Thunder Firday night. Kevin Garnett was 10 of 11 with 23 points. Paul Pierce was 6-11 for 21 points, and Rajon Rodo was 7-11 for 15 points in the C's 105-87 win. This makes it 7 wins in a row for the Celtics, including a perfect 4-0 road trip. For their next game, the Celtics will host the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night.
