“A penalty at that time of the game is not a penalty you want to take,” Julien said. “If (Drouin) said it’s on him he has reason. In a game like that when we came back to tie it, you really have to be disciplined. It’s certain that even if (Backes) went after him, he gave him a cross-check in the face and it’s a four-minute. It’s something we can’t keep doing if we want to win games. We need better discipline.”
Roy’s return: 10 years later
But I’ll also remember those nights where we made the Forum shake and sent shockwaves throughout Montreal. As your cheers now go straight to my heart, as you honor me tonight by retiring my jersey, and as you welcome me now like you did on my first day, my friends, tonight, I’m coming home.”
About last night … Caps win 5-4 in OT — Montreal Gazette
The Max Domi and Philip Danault lines played strong games again.
Jesperi Kotkaniemi played 16:41, had two assists and – the astonishing stat – won 10 of 16 faceoffs.

Kenny Agostino scored his first goal in bleu-blanc-rouge and continues to look good playing with the two Finns.

Mental illness carries so much stigma. Too much stigma. While there is no shame taking time off work after a bout of pneumonia, sharing that you have a mental illness is an act of profound courage for the risk of rejection, judgment and discrimination people are afraid they’ll face. Just imagine if people felt as comfortable talking about their anxiety, bipolar disorder or PTSD as they do talking about their tendinitis or high cholesterol. Not only would removing the stigma markedly reduce the suffering of those who are dealing with mental health, but it will help those who are caring for them to respond with greater courage, compassion and resilience.

A Tribute to Tomas Plekanec — ALL ABOUT THE HABS
Furthermore, he will go down as one of the most underrated players to wear a Habs jersey.
