[Highlight] Charles Hudon spins off his check and scores

The Canadiens have been scoring goals in bunches this pre-season, most recently on consecutive shots.

Charles Hudon hits Andreas Borgman with a Madden-esque spin move and scores to make it 4-1 #Habs pic.twitter.com/3UhYFPbDw5— Scott Matla (@scottmatla) September 25, 2018
