Habs blow out Jets behind Lars Eller’s career night

Jan 4, 2012, 10:51 PM EDT

Coming into Wednesday night’s action, Lars Eller had four goals on the season for the Montreal Canadiens. The highlight of that quad-trick has to be this spin-o-rama penalty shot tally:

This was Eller’s first hat trick with that brilliant cherry on top. He out-scored the Winnipeg Jets 4-3 while the Habs piled on three more to make it 7-3. Eller also recorded an assist to give himself a five-point night overall, bumping his season total from 12 to 17.

All around the hockey world, one can only imagine all of the “Great Dane” headlines, although I have to admit that my mind immediately jumped to his first name, as it evokes Napster-suing Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich and the weird Ryan Gosling idea movie “Lars and the Real Girl.” (To each his own pun, I guess.)

    Normally I’d be pretty impressed by someone scoring four goals, but if he didn’t celebrate in French I don’t think the city of Montreal wants me to care.

      Wow, that was really funny.

        Oh, trust me, most of us non-Quebecois are laughing.

    I would actually compliment you on your comment, but I feel I would owe the francophone community an apology…
