Galchenyuk & Markov

The Montreal Canadiens won their first game this season last night against the Florida Panthers by a score of 4-1. The Panthers had won all their previous 4 matches against the Canadiens and came into the game with confidence hoping they would keep their undefeated streak against the Habs, but the Habs had something else in mind. Coming off a season opener loss against the Maple Leafs, rumors were spread that the Canadiens are looking rather "sloppy" and "unprepared" for the 48 game season. Last night, the Canadiens proved those rumors wrong, the rookie forward, Alex Galchenyuk scored his first career NHL goal in a matter of just 19 minutes of being on the ice. Andrei Markov, the power defenseman who has suffered many knee injuries throughout the years, showcased his ability to rocket the puck behind the net, as he scored 2 powerplay goals. The Habs will take time to rest today, as they play the Capitals in Washington Thursday night at 7 pm.
