Molson Stadium streak to end By Herb Zurkowsky Sun, Oct 11 2009 COMMENTS(43) The Snap It's never easy betting against the Alouettes at home, where they're undefeated in six games this season.
And it certainly will be interesting to see how the Als respond in their first game after clinching first place in the East Division. The players maintain they won't suffer a letdown, which is what players always say under these circumstances. And perhaps they won't.
But consider the Calgary Stampeders, who have won eight of 11 games after beginning the season with two losses. The defending Grey Cup champions remain a good team, and mobile quarterback Henry Burris generally provides the Als' defence with fits.
The Stamps know Saskatchewan won Saturday night, moving the Roughriders temporarily into a tie for first place in the West Division. A Calgary win on Monday restores its two-point lead heading into a crucial game between the teams next Saturday, at Calgary. Win that one as well and the Stamps virtually clinch first place.
Simply put, the game against Montreal means more to the Stamps than it does to the Als.
Als lose, 27-19.
