Discussion Questions

  1. The Canadiens’ previous game saw them come back from behind in somewhat dramatic fashion only to lose in overtime. Sound familiar?
  2. Former King Jordan Weal is technically a Canadien, but basically never plays. Did they accidentally leave him behind somewhere and just don’t want to admit it?
  3. Please, Blake Lizotte, score a goal to free me from having to ask this question.
