Bob Gainey wakes up from his coma.
After staying immobile for two months, the Montreal Canadiens general manager Bob Gainey finally woke up and decided to call up two players from the Hamilton Bulldogs to try to shake his team up a bit.
So the forward Maxim Lapierre and defensemen Ryan O'Byrne practiced with the team yesterday morning after receiving the call from Gainey. They will both be in the lineup tonight in Boston as the Habs will try to end their losing streak. This will be the first regular season game for the 20-year old O'Byrne, always a special unforgettable moment for a rookie. As for Lapierre, he already had some regular season experience from last season.
Head coach Guy Carbonneau said that the fun time is over and if some players do not perform to his liking he will not hesitate to bench them. Will the Habs snap their losing streak tonight in Boston?
