Want some video to go along with the audio commentary? TSN has just that when the asked Mathieu about the few days of rest coming up for the Habs.

Here's a rough transcript, transcribed by me, at 11:30 at night, after 10 hours at work and a harrowing drive home surrounded by horrible California drivers who don't understand that 80+ mph on a flooded freeway is probably not the best idea in a pouring rain*:
"It's a grind, without a doubt. It's impossible to play your best 82 nights out of the season, with the travel schedule and just the fact that there is not an easy night in this league anymore. Any team can beat any other team on a given night."

My experience is that those videos say up for a couple of weeks. After that, I'm sure this link will die. But enjoy while you have the chance.

*And Caltrans, how 'bout when you close the right two lanes of a freeway you don't put up the old sign that says "left two lanes closed." Yeah, it kind of does a disservice to us drivers when you don't turn off the "merge right" sign when you shut the right bore of the Caldecott Tunnel. Or at least put up one of those blinking arrow signs that you can see from space. It's pretty hard to see your last minute token traffic cones in the driving rain! Sure, I saw it coming, but Mr. Minivan-with-Nevada-Plates and Mr. I'm-a-Speeding-Jackass-Mustang sure didn't until the last minute. If only Mr. Minivan-with-Nevada-plates had my view of that near miss, I think he'd need a clean pair of shorts. Ah, ignorance is bliss and I hope he has an unevent rest of the night.
