Hey everybody, just like many of you, I was super surprised to see the Leafs, or mostly soon to be Marlies, beat the Habs last night. I was fairly certain that if the Habs were dressing Drouin, Weber, Pacioretty, Galchenyuk and the almighty Carey Price, that surely it would be a victory just to keep the game close. After the first period, it went pretty much as expected. 2-0 Habs.
Then the second period started on the power play, and that’s when everything started to change.
Then unexpectedly, the SNIPER Marty McSNIPERCIN floats one in.
Thinking there’s no way this continues, next thing you know Borgman rifles in a third goal.
After that, I’m watching the game thinking, OK this is when the Habs come back and the Leafs/Marlies blow the lead right? Waiting for this to happen, they then snipe another one.
Then all I could think was, ‘Holy fuck, Habs fans are gonna be losing their fucking minds!’ Preseason or not, this has to be very concerning for the fans. As I looked at Twitter this morning, that seems to be the case. Here’s a mild one.
Here are some funny tweets that I found during the game.
Yes, I realize that it’s preseason, and yes I realize that even though the Habs had most of their top players, they didn’t have a full lineup. I really don’t give a crap. Any time the Leafs grind one out and beat the Habs, it’s a good time in Leafs Nation.
