Gameday! Habs vs Panthers

Montreal Canadiens vs. Florida Panthers

Let’s keep it rolling, boys!

After a stellar performance by Carey Price, in which he stopped 40 of 41 shots fired by the Atlanta Thrashers on Tuesday, this team is well aware they owe him one.

Hopefully they come out firing against Florida tonight.  A game between these two teams always seems extremely fast paced, and I don’t expect tonight to be any different.

After wins by Toronto, New Jersey and Long Island last night, the Habs can ill afford to lose any of the “easy” games they have left on the schedule.  The race in the East keeps getting more and more jammed up, and the Habs, although in 6th place, still have to prove they deserve to be in the playoffs this year.

Who’s out?

Montreal

  • Andrei Markov (Torn ACL-out indefinitely)
  • Josh Jorges (out indefinitely)
  • Mathieu Darche
  • Jaroslav Spacek
  • Alex Picard (healthy scratch)

Florida

  • Byron Bitz
  • Rostislav Olesz
  • Jack Skille
  • Shawn Matthias
  • Ryan Carter
  • Evgeny Dadonov

Keys to the Game

Are you ever gonna show up this season, Scott?

Keep the pedal to the medal!  As I stated earlier, this team owes Carey Price a win after the last game, and I expect them to comply.

They came out strong last game and then sat back in Martin’s lame system, and it almost came back to bite them.

My Prediction

Montreal 5 – Florida 2
