B's/Habs wrapup-

Well, it was a good game.

The Bruins got a little lucky with the bounce off the back boards, but on the home opener of the centennial season of the Montreal Canadiens, the fact that the home team doesn't get that bounce?

I think it bodes well for the B's.

Ultimately, I'll say that once again, I'm disappointed in the shootout.

It continues to not only water down the thrill of the penalty shot, but provided the Habs with a win that didn't feel like much, and left the Bruins with a loss that felt like they stole a point.

When a win doesn't feel like a win, and a loss feels like a minor victory, there is something wrong with the game.

I hate to tell you, but that game was a tie, and there is nothing wrong with a tie in the regular season, especially between these two magnificent franchises, with the entire season in front of them.

A win in the shootout is like kissing your sister.

Am I alone here?

I'll have to kiss your sister to know for sure.

Well, I don't have a sister. I have a sister-in-law, and she lives in Maine. If you're up for a roadtrip, I might just be able to make that dream come true, so long as you're a gentleman.

Well then I hope the Canucks kiss their sister 82 times this year!
