KEY TO THE GAME POUR LES CANADIENS DE MONTRÉAL:

- Work with intensity during 60 full minutes (or 65): We saw what could happen when you only work for 50 minutes and take 10 minutes off. A 4-1 lead turned into a 5-4 shootout loss. U-N-A-C-C-E-P-T-A-B-L-E. Now, that was only Nashville, and tonight, our opponents are none other than the Detroit Red Wings, who lead the league for goals scored.

Wings we'll need to win tonite,

and not our recent Habbies-lite;

to beat the best is quite a chore,

but if we can, we're up for more!

GO HABS GO!

I was thinking almost the exact same thing.. except I think Latandresse will keep is roll going with another goal instead of Striet. and I see price making 41 saves.

But I still like the 3-2 call and the goals by Kostitsyn and Kovalev

As a Habs devotee living in Michigan, tonight's game is THE game for me. I have supported the Red Wings since I moved here in '00, but rediscovered my passion for the Habs when I purchased the Dish Network NHL Center Ice Package last year and had the opportunity to see all of their games. Based on current results, the Habs really need a good performance tonight, which will be difficult because the Red Wings are playing out of their mind. I would be most happy with a close Habs win.

This is winnable. Detroit has only 3 games in the month of November where they beat the other teams by more then two goals and only one was away from home. Out of there last 6 on the road they have lost 4 so if there is a weakness it's on the road.

We need to capitalize early and never look back. Carbo has to actively manage the game which means at 10:00 minutes in the third if we are up 4-1 he has to keep his pulse on the momentum and do whatever it takes to get the regulation win.

Of course the players need to play hard and with pride as well.

GO HABS GO

Well I guess another loss is in the books, montreal might as well just hand over the two points and save themselves the humilation. I precit around 3-0 4-0 wings. Price will be good but the boys will be brutal..once again.

The habs will get like 14 shots the whole game, and hasek will get another easy win against montreal.
