Je suis tres content pour Lars: Cunneyworth bilingue!
Coach Cunneyworth is appealing to Lars Eller--stay humble my friend. But the interim head coach was happy to flash a newly learned french-language phrase starting his post-game news conference.
"Je suis tres content pour Lars," Cunneyworth beamed.
Eller has scored 5 goals in 4 games since being benched on the Holiday roadtrip.
Listen to Cunneyworth on Eller, Cole and all that went right for the Habs, winning only their 6th game on homeice this season but marked by the stellar explosion of an instant star.
After the game the Canadiens confirmed Louis Leblanc was headed back to Hamilton. The Bulldogs will soon host an outdoor game at Ivor Wynne Stadium.
It could be a sign that captain Brian Gionta will be able to play Saturday against the Lightning after all.
