could someone translate ? My french is not the best but I thought it said Gorges and Grabovski are in tonight.

The Preds won in every NHL rink but the Bell Center where they're 0-3-1... they finished November with an 8-2-2 record... it will be Bonk's return to Montreal and he has 9 goals... Huet, who's lost 4 of his last 5, will be in net... Begin and Kostopoulos out, Gorges and Grabovski in while Streit will play forward for the first time this year.

Quick translation...

Yeah, I'm surprised... I thought Josh would replace Breezer for tonight... I hope he'll do better tonight !

I thought so too and I hope Breezer does better tonight too. :)

We are certainly be a speedy club up front

I'm actually thrilled to see Streit at forward! Finally, as that's where he's most efficient.
Agree, and he could still play the point on the PP

i'm starting to get very disheartened....gohabsgo (quiet cheer).

markov's playing again tonight?! hmmmm. i think he might be due for a rest - not that he didn't play well last night, but his mobility just isn't there.

good on him for playing through injuries though; i just hope it doesn't cause him to miss any serious time later on.

let's go boys, let's show an expansion team what a real hockey team looks like :D

OK How is the world is Kostopoulos supposed to score his 3rd with me going to the game if he isn't even playing :(

oh well.


Go Habs!!! I want to be 3-0 after this one. I deserve to be after that pathetic game last night!


so Is Begin injured or a healthy scratch?

I'm happy about this as well.

He certainly hasn't been making any strides towards a Norris Trophy this season. Hopefully he can play some smarter hockey up front.

Carbonneau is scratching the wrong players. Saying that Nashville is a fast team he should not be sitting out Steve Begin! He should take Ryder out of the lineup he is slow and cannot score! Carbonneau should start sitting out the so called stars of our team who are not producing, this may wake them up! Keeping Begin and Kostopoulos out of the line-up 2 guys who are always working shows Carbonneau really is a rookie coach!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
