"At this time of the year you're looking for things to motivate you and, in this game, there's a bunch of them," Carbonneau said after the team practised yesterday morning at the Bell Centre. We can clinch a playoff spot and there's still first place and we'd like to keep Ottawa away from us." The Canadiens' 3-2 shootout win over the Boston Bruins Saturday kept the Canadiens atop the Eastern Conference standings, although Pittsburgh is only one point back and holds a game in hand. The Habs have been dominated virtually all season when they've faced the Ottawa Senators. But the Senators would gladly trade that success for the Canadiens' spot in the Northeast Division. Montreal looks to move one step closer to its first division title since 1991-92 when it hosts second-place Ottawa. But the Senators are hardly a walk in the park, Ottawa having enjoyed a decided advantage in head-to-head matches this season. The Senators have won five of the six meetings this season and eight of the last nine overall. They've outscored the Canadiens 9-1 in their two most recent games, including a 3-0 victory at the Bell Centre on March 13. <H2 class=title>Carbo plans same lineup vs. Senators</H2><H4 class=posted>posted by Dave Stubbs at 18h10 EST on Mar 23</H4>Pat Hickey reports from today's Canadiens practice that head coach Guy Carbonneau expects to use the same lineup tomorrow vs. the Ottawa Senators as that which he used Saturday against Boston. There's a slight chance that Guillaume Latendresse will be ready to go, having missed Saturday's game with neck spasms, but it seemed unlikely. Carey Price gets the start in goal. http://www.habsinsideout.com/ GO HABS GO It's game day and there was no thread started. I've never done anything like this before so I just copied some stuff (links included). If someone has a better one, feel free to merge/delete this one, it won't hurt my feeling any.
