Original Five For Five, Habs Were Idle

February 20, 2017

Yesterday with the slumping Montreal Canadiens idle, five of the original six NHL teams were in action in staggered starts and all five were victorious.

The New York Rangers won at home vs the top ranked Washington Capitals in a 12:30 start on NBC. Next also on “The Peacock Network” which also aired a 90th Anniversary Show from 8 to 11, the Detroit Red Wings were “in vogue,” winning (5-2) at the the defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins.

Playing with starting times an hour and a half apart, first the Chicago Blackhawks won (5-1) in Buffalo vs the Sabres and next the Toronto Maple Leafs won (4-0), the same score they clinched the 1964 crown with the great Johnny Bower in goal, at Carolina vs the Hurricanes.

Maybe Tom Brady tuned in on a satellite dish somewhere as the Boston Bruins won (2-1) at San Jose in the latest of the 5 tilts all won by original six NHL franchises yesterday.
