Montreal seems intent on ruining this Calgary feel-good party.
just tallied a goal to make it 3-0 on an assist from current Montreal assistant coach Kirk Muller
. Brent Gilchrist
and Mike Keane
had the first two first goals for Montreal.
While some of the Montreal players are having a good time, Brian Skrudland
is being killed by his former teammates. Keane playfully called Skrudland the worst roommate he ever had in 23 years of professional hockey and also said Skrudland is the reason his hair has turned gray. Russ Courtnall
, meanwhile, said Skrudland did not shut up this afternoon before the game.
Skrudland said he couldn't care less. "I'm just happy to be alive these days," he said, kidding.
And with that, Calgary gets on the board. Montreal goalie Eric Fichaud
couldn't handle a slap shot from Al MacInnis
and Joe Nieuwendyk
showed he stIll has world-class hands by claiming the rebound and putting it in shortside before Fichaud could respond.
Then, Calgary had another goal waved off because the puck was played with a high stick.
