Default mode

I knew days like Tuesday were bound to happen. After years of focusing primarily on pucks, the hounding bag for the Montreal Canadiens was noticeably lighter. The wish list lacked pucks. Not even one.

Sure, a couple other pieces proved useful, but a nearly full book of cards saved my bacon, with 14 Habs players and coaches adding more than two dozen to the collection:

Top row: Francis Bouillon, Patrice Brisebois, Josh Gorges and Jaroslav Halak;
Bottom row: Chris Higgins, Maxim Lapierre, Guillaume Latendresse and Kirk Muller.

About those other pieces? They made for a pretty solid day:

~ Guy Carbonneau, Saku Koivu, Alex Kovalev and Robert Lang knocking out the Canadiens team helmet;
~ Carey Price signing a picture to Colin and a magazine;
~ Tomas Plekanic inking four cards;
~ More cards from the Habs' All Star defensemen; and
~ Notable efforts from the Brothers Kostitsyn and Ryan O'Byrne.
