Another Habs’ “L” Player’s, Arturri “L”ehtinen’s “Semi” Clinching OT Goal

June 25, 2021

Artturri “L”ehtinen scored at 1:39 of overtime, lifting the 4 to 1 opening and 7 to 1 after game 1, underdog, Montreal Canadiens (3-2) in #6 and to a (4-2) series triumph, vs the Vegas Golden Knights.

The Golden Knights may have dropped the “L”as,” but it is a “L”oss, as “L”ehtinen joined Jacques “L”emaire (’68 in game 5 vs “Chi”) and Yvon “L”ambert, on a similar goal to Lehtinen’s last night, as he took a pass from Mario Tremblay–last night the pass to “L”ehtinen was from Phillip Danault, (Lambert in #7 vs the Bruins) as “L” players, who scored semi round, OT clinchers at Montreal, for the Canadiens. (By the way, there are other OT semi round clinching goals for Montreal, I recalled the great Jean Beliveau doing so at Boston in #6 in ’69, John Ferguson in #4 at the New York Rangers in ’67 and the immortal Maurice “Rocket” Richard vs Detroit in ’57 and maybe others. It is not easy to research this).

Vegas lost as an OVER PRICED (the Habs have an excellent goaltender, Carey PRICE, who stopped 37 of the 39 shots he faced) favorite, a semis loss as a favorite for the second straight season, this one costing the local Vegas backers/suckers and was a boon to the “houses” in the desert.

Cole Caufield (in the Clippers’ first ever quarters clincher, it was a Terrence Mann, in “Field of Dreams,” that name was used for the James Earl Jones played, supposed J.D. Salinger character. Of course, Mr. Salinger wrote “Catcher In The Rye,” with its main character being “Holden CAUFIELD”) and Shea Weber, the latter to play in his first final series in this his 16th NHL season, also had Montreal goals. 

Speaking of overtime late round series clinchers, Alec Martinez, who had the Cup clincher for the L.A. Kings in ’14 vs the Rangers and Riley Smith had the Vegas goals.

“Les” Canadiens will face the winner of tonight’s game 7, Isles at “L”ightning tilt, with the winner getting home advantage in a series that may, even likely will start on Monday June 28th, the day after “The Mand” turns 66, but is forever young and circling end for a touchdown run that “showed” the guys. Additionally “we” hope and pray for the great Guy Lafleur.


Before Mr. Lambert’s goal on a pass from Mario Tremblay, a somewhat similar right to left pass as Danault to Lehtinen last night, Guy Lafleur tied that game 7/1979 semis with a perfect shot.

The goal above with the immortal Danny Galivan on the call with I believe Lou Nanne as the analyst.
