Montreal Canadiens vs. Dallas Stars
So all Habs fans are having a panic attack over the recent losses, are they? Well I’m not. This ship will right itself. Perhaps this 7 game road trip is exactly what this team needs. We all know how hard it can be to play in Montreal when things aren’t going absolutely perfect. There has been some changes in the lineup and it will take a few games for everyone to get back to where they were.
In the words of Carey Price, “Chill out!”
Everything will be ok.
- Andrei Markov (Torn ACL-out indefinitely)
- Tom Pyatt (healthy scratch)
- Yannick Weber (healthy scratch)
No injuries announced
Keys to the Game
It’s all on Jacques Martin this game. He has done a good job this year of getting everyone playing as a unit, until recently, and the Habs have faltered. It is up to the coaches at this point to get everyone back on track, and between Martin, Muller, Pearn and Groulx this is definitely not something to worry about.
The players should be able to relax a bit and play a patient road game, enjoying some of the heat removed from being out of the Bell Center and into the heat of Texas.
Montreal 3 – Dallas 2 SO
***Breaking News*** Andrei Kostitsyn will be a healthy scratch for this game. Is this the end for the big winger? Or is it just a wakeup call?
