Gameday! Habs vs. Thrashers


Friday November 26, 2010

Montreal Canadiens vs. Atlanta Thrashers

Try not to sleep folks.  That’s right I’m talking to you Habs players.  Keep up the pace and don’t get lazy against this “lesser” opponent.  With their young defensive core, this Thrashers team is packing a punch.

Everyone already knows what Dustin Byfuglien did in Chicago, and he hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down in Atlanta either.

Who’s out?

Montreal

  • Andrei Markov (Torn ACL-out indefinitely)
  • Dustin Boyd (healthy scratch)
  • Carey Price  (much deserved rest)

Atlanta

  • Fred Modin

Keys to the Game

Speed.  Speed.  Speed.  The Habs have enough speed to skate circles around this team, and if they do it, they will win.

Alex Auld gets a rare start tonight and it’s important the defense does a good job of letting him see pucks early until he can shake any rust off he may have accumulated while riding the pine.

My Prediction

Montreal 5 – Atlanta 3
