Great Day for Habs' Brass

Today has two pieces of good news if you're a Habs fan.

1) The Hamilton Bulldogs defeated the Chicago Wolves to advance to the Calder Cup finals. Carey Price was stellar in net once again. Kyle Chipchura sealed the deal with a big faceoff win in his own zone with a minute left. Outmanned 6-4, Chips won the draw and fired the puck into the 4x6 170 feet away. The fact that Don Lever has him out there killing a penalty with 60 seconds left in the game really speaks volumes about the former first round pick.

2) Bob Gainey inked Sergei Kostitsyn to a 3-year deal today. He will be a Bulldog next year, hopefully replacing his brother in Hamilton.

I hope all of my American readers are having a safe and fun Memorial Day weekend.
