Habs Put the Boots to Sens


Written By: Iain Carnegie, @emann_222

(Toronto) Five minutes in and many #Montréal fans had written off their team and were crying bloody murder. I guess they forgot what happened March 15th – the last time these two teams met on the ice.

With an early 3 goal lead, Ottawa seemed to have things in hand, but that was before La Flanelle potted 7 unanswered goals to command a dominating lead.

The #Hotline of Pacioretty, Desjarnais, and Vanek amassed 10 points throughout the match, with Number 67 acquiring a hat trick and putting him within two goals of a 40 goal season.

Budaj – despite giving up 4 goals saw far more action than Anderson. Shots on Goal in the end were 43-23 in favour of the Senators.

With tonight’s win, Montréal puts the pressure back on Tampa as they solidify second place and home ice advantage come playoff time on the 16th of the month. All remaining games for both clubs will be highly contested matches to gain that upper hand.

Next up for Montréal is a hosted match against #Detroit tomorrow night.

Puck drops shortly after 19h00 at le Centre Bell.
