Tropical Storm Elsa Habs

Dominique Ducharme on Tropical Storm Elsa: “It’s probably part of our destiny”

The Habs are literally flying into a tropical storm for Game 5.

After last night’s overtime win by the Montreal Canadiens, the Habs are set to take on the Lightning in Game 5 in Tampa Bay Wednesday night. Today is a travel day for both teams, however with Tropical Storm Elsa approaching, questions are now being asked about the game’s feasibility. Elsa is expected to pass along the Florida coast tomorrow morning, right through Tampa Bay.

Montreal Canadiens Head Coach Dominique Ducharme commented on Tropical Storm Elsa earlier today, and whether it’s of any concern for Game 5.

“It’s no surprise anymore, I think anything can happen. For a while, we just take it and look at it and say, ‘It’s probably part of our destiny.’ It’s been crazy, but we’re a crazy bunch of guys here and we’re gonna take that challenge.”

Last night marked the fourth time that the Habs have won in these playoffs facing elimination; tomorrow night, the Montreal Canadiens hope to make it number 5.

Game 5 is set to start at 8 p.m. at the Amalie Arena.
