Hackett's First Game in Black and Gold... Sort Of

Only sort of because the trade was so recent that his new mask hasn't been painted and his new pads haven't been broken in. There's something just plain weird about someone decked out in a B's jersey with everything else in the rouge, bleu et blanc of the Habs.

Talk about a sharp performance in net! He was in position for every shot and made it look natural. He never looked like he was uncomfortable or struggling.

The game itself was hard hitting and physical. Both teams had their chances with the B's having more than Philly. It was a 0-0 tie through three so they went into OT. Philly had a great chance early on. Hackett made the save and it transitioned into a rush the other way with Rolston picking up the game winner! 8)

It was a hard fought game. Hopefully they can keep up the intensity and start moving back up in the standings.
