I am feeling ambiguous this morning, much like my colleague Rosalyn Roy
On one hand, I am biased towards the Canadiens and want to see them do well.
On the other hand, I want this miserable season to provide some sort of tangible reward, preferably in the form of a top draft pick.
So, in seeing the 28th ranked Canadiens beat the 29th ranked Oilers, there are conflicting feelings.
There is one thing, however, that provides no uncertain emotions: Max Pacioretty's play this season.
The story has been told umpteen times, but to watch him play at such a high level after a near career-ending incident is truly something to behold.
