As much as many fans want the Canadiens to perform poorly in hopes of obtaining a high draft pick, it is clearly not in these Habs to intentionally tank.
The way Desharnais and company celebrated after tying the game with less than three seconds remaining, you would think they were playing for spoils - not the role of spoiler.
Good on them.
Elsewhere, in Nashville, it was a big time former Canadiens festival as Sergei Kostitsyn, Andrei Kostisyn, Francis Bouillon and even Hal Gill had points in a 5-4 shootout win over Phoenix.
So, Hab fans, If you are looking for a team to cheer for in the playoffs, they could be your horse.
Speaking of which, with Montreal out of the playoff picture, who will you root for in the post-season?
