BREAKING NEWS: Canadiens go down 0-2 in SCF Series to celebrate Canada Day today…

What is Canada Day you ask?

Canada Day is the national day of Canada. A federal statutory holiday, it celebrates the anniversary of Canadian Confederation which occurred on July 1, 1867, with the passing of the Constitution Act, 1867 where the three separate colonies of Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick were united into a single Dominion within the British Empire called Canada. Originally called Dominion Day, the holiday was renamed in 1982 when the Canadian Constitution was patriated by the Canada Act 1982. Canada Day celebrations take place throughout the country, as well as in various locations around the world attended by Canadians living abroad.

However many Canadiens fans woke up quite bummed out today knowing their beloved team is now coming home for Game 3 Friday down two games to none in the best of 7 series to the Lightning.

Now it wasn’t for lack of trying in Game 2 as the Canadiens heavily outshot the Lightning 43-23 and controlled most of the momentum throughout the game. It just seems that all of the puck luck has still been going Tampa’s way such as the first goal hitting Price’s blocker but still finding its way in. Of course there’s the awful play by Edmundson to turn it over behind the net leading to the 3rd goal which was the dagger at that point in the third period.

We all expect the Habs to come out Friday for Game 3 even stronger than they did and find a way to get back into this series. If they don’t get it done and fall down three games to none then it seems once again a Canadian team will not hoist Lord Stanley’s Cup.

There is still plenty of hockey left to play in this series and the Canadiens proved last night they aren’t going to just lay down and give up.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
