Guest gumper Posted October 31, 2007 Report Share Posted October 31, 2007 VS. Game Preview- The Montreal Canadiens meet up with the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday, which will be a battle fo two of the leagues best overall teams so far this season. The Canadiens lost in a shootout on Tuesday night, but are still a strong 6-2-3, and undefeated in regulation in their past 5 games, where they have outscored their opponents 23-13, as well as having the top Powerplay percentage in the league. The Flyers are fresh off their third suspension in less than a month, as defenseman Randy Jones was suspended two games for a check from behind on the Boston Bruins' Patrice Bergeron. They won that game 2-1. Despite their suspensions, the Flyers are unarguably the most improved team in the league, going 7-3-0 in their first 10 games after finishing in last in the 2006-2007 season. Off-season pickup Daniel Briere has been the star for the Flyers so far, scoring 4 goals and tallying 9 assists in his first season with Philadelphia. Projected Lines- I have no idea what the lines are exactly, somebody post them and I'll try to get a moderator to edit them in or something. But I'm guessing Huet will be in net, as god as Price is playing, Huet is still our #1 goalie and Carbo woldn't sit him for 3 straight games.
