MONTREAL — To be honest, I didn’t veer of my two-block path from my hotel to the Bell Centre tonight. But on the way, I tried to see if there was anything creative coming from the Canadiens’ fans outside.

The best I saw was the guy holding a sign that said “Dry, Chara, Dry” with little water drops drawn around it. I can only assume it sounds more threatening in French. Anyway, if I see anything better in the stands from my seat, I’ll let you know.
