MONTREAL - It's been six long years, but the Edmonton Eskimos finally remembered what it was like to win on the road against the Montreal Alouettes with a 33-22 win on Friday.

Prior to, you'd have to go all the way back to Sept. 23, 2007, for the last time that happened.

There are only two players on the Eskimos roster who were around for that one, and one of them wasn't even here to enjoy it.

All-star slotback Fred Stamps sat out his first game of the season with an undisclosed injury (or two), while fellow eight-year veteran Calvin McCarty was also in his rookie season back then.

“A long time, man,” the Eskimos fullback said. “Any win feels good, but to be able to get that monkey off your back in a place that you've had trouble with is positive to build on.

“I remember it was a low-scoring game, but I know we weren't supposed to win that game.”
