Montreal Canadiens vs. Toronto “Maple Leaves”

Hey Mike! Remember when Markov made you an allstar? How's that contract working out for ya? Pfft...

Alright, enough of this nonsense!  It’s time for a win.  The fans know it, the players know it, the coaches know it, even the “Maple Leaves” know it!  It WILL happen tonight.  The “Leaves” will start to lose, and the Habs will start to win.  All will be right in the world.

Repeat after me,

“It’s all been a bad dream.” “It’s all been a bad dream.” “It’s all been a bad dream.” “It’s all been a bad dream.” “It’s all been a bad dream.” “It’s all been a bad dream.” “It’s all been a bad dream.” “It’s all been a bad dream.” “It’s all been a bad dream.”…………….

Who’s out?

Montreal

  • Andrei Markov (still recovering from knee surgery)
  • Ryan White
  • Jaroslav Spacek
  • Chris Campoli
  • Scott Gomez

 Keys to the Game

The injury to Gomez means that David Desharnais will be, inarguably, the teams second line center.  There is argument that he has been just that already throughout this year, but now there is no debate.  Hopefully the kid will respond with a big game.

I would love to tell you what the lineups are to be for this game, but with Jacques Martin as coach, your guess is as good as mine.

Look for Toronto to crash the net to try and get Price off his game.  It’s not going to work.  I suspect there will be a parade to the penalty box for both teams tonight, and special teams will be the deciding factor of this one.

My Prediction

Habs 5 – “Maple Leaves” 2
