La ville est hockey

Here in Montreal, most hockey fans are confident in their claim that this is, in fact, Hockey Town. It certainly isn't Detroit.

After living here for eight years, I tend to agree. When the Habs are playing, or even better, in the hunt for La Coupe, this city is insane. I do find it odd, however, that since the Canadiens have been ousted from the second season, hockey has taken a serious back seat in the news.

Last night, many of us stayed up until the wee hours of the morning to watch one of the most exciting games in a long time. We are in the very heart of the Stanley Cup Finals. This is it, folks. It doesn't get any better than this.

It came as a surprise then, that the game story was on page 5 of today's sports section. I understand that the game finished really late, but if they had time to print a story, why put it in the middle of the section.

Maybe this city is only a Habs Hockey Town.
