Call of the Wilde: Montreal Canadiens an Montreal
Call of the Wilde: Montreal Canadiens and Ottawa Senators go to OT.
The Montreal Canadiens underwent two winless skids of eight games in the same season.
The season has progressed to 96 points, even though it does not seem possible in 2019-20, but is where the Canadiens proved everything wrong as they traveled to stormy Ottawa and made sure that the number eight didn’t turn into nine.
It was a close and tight contest that proceeded to overtime, and finally, the Canadiens won it 2-1.
The most promising minute of the season in some respects was when Nick Suzuki, Jesperi Kotkaniemi and Artturi Lehkonen were accidentally together on the ice because of an incomplete line change, in the last minute of the first period.
They played impressibly together as these three intelligent hockey players shot in and out of traffic, seeming to have a read for each other immediately.
During the overtime, Shea Weber wanted to do some damage with his size and succeeded on two occasions.
