Habs Win! Habs Win! **now with video!**

**Update** Video!

Tomas Plekanec scores his third goal of the game during a 2-man advantage

Chris Higgins on a penalty shot. This guy is going to be a huge star!

4-3 over Boston! Tomas Plekanec had a natural hat trick, and Chris Higgins scored the other marker for the Habs. I'd forgotten that Chuck Kobasew is a Bruin now, so it was cool to see at least one Kelowna Rockets alumni tonight (Josh Gorges wasn't in the line-up for Montreal). Jaroslav Halak looked good in goal, Ryan O'Byrne had a short fight and was solid defensively all night long, and there were a lot of Habs fans in the audience. It was a great time. Pics? You betcha!

Me and my multi-signed jersey: Mike Komisarek, J.P. Cote, Ryan O'Byrne, Bryan Smolinski, Ben Maxwell, Chris Higgins, Kyle Chipchura, and assistant coach (and member of the 1993 Stanley Cup Champions!) Kirk Muller. I also got Ryder to sign the base of his action figure. Very cool of him to do two things for me.

All in all, a fantastic night. Really looking forward to seeing them again on April 5th against Toronto. As always, GO HABS GO!!!
