Canadiens Win 3000th NHL Game
Total Pro Sports – Last night one of the most storied franchises in sports history the Montreal Canadiens won their 3000th NHL game against the Florida Panthers. The game ended in a 5-2 beating with defensive player Maxim Lapierre scoring his first career hatrick.
The game was played in Sunrise, Florida to a nice gathering of Habs fans. A friend of TPS who is a huge Montreal Canadiens fan and was present at the game, reported that it almost seemed as if he were watching the game in Montreal at the Bell Center.
“The atmosphere was electric, we were much louder then the Panthers fans!”
He noted that two cheers broke out “Go Habs Go” and “Carey, Carey, Carey, Carey” for their stellar goalie Carey Price. Florida is a great place to watch a hockey game, it’s cheap and the atmosphere is great.
Florida coach Pete DeBoer had this to say about the Habs 3000th win last night,
“I thought the crowd was great, It was a great atmosphere, outstanding. If we can have crowds like that every weekend, I don’t care who they’re cheering for. It was a great atmosphere in the building.” reported espn.com
Even opposing coaches appreciate other fans in their building cheering. Peters statements are definilty true. Being a former hockey player myself, we loved going into other teams barns and stirring it up with their fans. It rallied up our team knowing our fans were with us away from home.
