History Will Be Made - Brian Gionta - What if the Habs didn't believe?

In another in the series of "History Will Be Made" NHL commercials, the NHL's advertising people commemorate the Canadiens 4-3 series win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Awesome win, awesome game, and awesome commercial!

Because the Habs did make history last night - the only 8th seed to defeat the President's Trophy winners and the defending Stanley Cup champs back to back - I have no problem with this one. Ditto that for Halak's 53 save game 6 performance in round 1 vs. Washington - it was historic and unlikely to be repeated.

As for the rest, Habs or not, I think they're unnecessary. They're not historic (Maxim Lapierre? great goal but WTF), and it comes across like the NHL whoring out what was a really nice touch - a tribute to the great hockey moments that no one forgets. Do they really think 20 years from now anyone's going to remember MAF's shutout in a series the Pens lost, or that the Habs put the boots to the Pens?

Flogging a dead horse... enough already.

LOL! Ahhh Tyg that's why we love you....it your "subtle as a brick to the head" approach that makes your comment so awesome, imo!!

Love it!!

That being said, you're right in that some of them are weaker than others. THIS one with Gionta, I find hits that emotional nerve that the original ones with Gretzky, Roy, Yzerman et al. hit.

Nice one, imo.

LMAO Sorry Kamal. I'm riding a giddy little high today. Go figure. I'll try to be good - mostly. ;)

GO HABS GO WE BELIEVE

Tyg: LOL! No don't stop. I wasn't being sarcastic. I love the edge that you bring to your commentary and have secret thought about getting you to do a guest piece at some point.

Hmmm....food for thought...

Salut Jacques et merci pour ton commentaire!

WOW indeed! I think we are all stunned today!

Let's hope for numero 25 bientot!

Hey Kamal - anytime dude. Seriously. I'd be delighted.
