Just as I predicted
before the season three days ago, the Sabres beat the Islanders to begin their season 10-0, tying them for the best start in NHL history. Meanwhile, Jim Kiick and Larry Csonka are holding a bottle of champagne at the ready, waiting for the one time each year that they become briefly relevant. Oops, wrong sport. Whatever, they're still douchebags.
In much more interesting hockey news, the Canadiens beat the Bruins 3-2 in Boston on a tie-breaking goal scored with 1.2 seconds left in the game. Not surprisingly, that didn't go over well in Boston, and fans littered the ice with garbage, forcing the referees to call the game before the final buzzer. Said Montreal captain Saku Koivu:
"When you see the bottles with liquid being thrown from 20 rows up, you worry about your head or face being hurt. The referees did the right thing to end the game… It was a huge win. It feels a lot bigger when you steal it in the last few seconds."
He then added, "And it feels a lot — I mean a LOT — better when you piss off a bunch of pretentious Boston assholes."
