    WOW!! That was an amazing standing ovation he received for his first game back since his battle with cancer. The ovation even continued during the National Anthem and picked up again when the starting lineup was announced. [​IMG]
    It's great to have him back.[​IMG]

    It's awesome that he's back. It's always good to see someone battle cancer and win.
    Of course, if his Canadians play the Bruins in the first round of the playoffs his winning days are over for a while. [​IMG]

    Even given the possible chance of a second round matchup between Montreal and Philly, this Flyers fan is thrilled to see Koivu back and (presumably) healthy.
    A great story. [​IMG]

    This is one of the best sports stories in quite a while, and I'm not just saying that as a huge Habs fan. Saku can be a big inspiration to others battling cancer. It sounds like the Montreal crowd gave him a wonderful reception. Unfortunately, Canadiens games are not easily seen in this area. I was fortunate enough to see the reception he received at the home opener last fall -- that was also quite emotional.
    It will be nice to see the Canadiens in the playoffs again. Theodore has carried this team all season, and really deserves the Vezina Trophy.

    The Habs just took care of Ottawa, 4-3. Looks they locked up their return to the playoffs tonight. Nice to see my team actually be competetive after so many years of stinking up the ice. Way to go Saku, welcome back [​IMG]
    Scott, I subscribe to the Center Ice package on DirecTv so I can catch most of the Habs games.

    Mark,

    I've considered adding Center Ice, but I cannot stand giving evil Comcast any more of my money than I already do (they offer it through their digital cable service). A dish does not work well for our situation -- six TV's on three floors attached to cable, and cable modem Internet access.

    I listen to many of the Habs games over the Internet. They can all be heard through links on NHL.com.

    Yeah ....Great to see Saku back. [​IMG] The standing ovation was well deserved and probably the longest one I ever heard.
