Survey proves Canadiens fans don't believe in them

On Tuesday night, the Montreal Canadiens were back at home to face the surprising Detroit Red Wings, who were without their two best players, Dylan Larkin and Tyler Bertuzzi.

It didn't matter what kind of team the Habs were facing yesterday, the important thing was to analyze what Dominique Ducharme's team was made of. They responded without worrying about who they were playing against and who wasn't.

What I wanted to observe was the commitment of the players. Conviction, passion, the desire to win and their IDENTITY. Today, we can say that it was a mission accomplished, as the club dominated in terms of pitching and stood out in opposing territory.

That said, all of this hubbub leads me to a poll put together by the JiC team (TVA Sports) and the result of it. Here's the question: After yesterday's win, which of the statements do you think is a certainty?

The answer choices are as follows:

So a little more than 60% believe that beating Detroit is a victory without glory... For me, it's more than that because, as mentioned before, the commitment and the work were there, which is a big step forward from the first ten games. The identity of the Canadiens was back, at least for one game.

Let's hope that the team will continue its ascent towards a position more eloquent than the cellar!
