Has Mason been confirmed as the Columbus goaltender? He barely scratched out a win against Edmonton due to some frenzied third period play. If he's in I hope we can take advantage of him early and chase him from the net.

He isn't confirmed, but decided to put him in there lol...I'll change it once I get word on who is starting.

finally a gdt...thanks! :)

i like that you have our leading goal scorers tops on both teams. i assume that means that the jackets have noone notable scoring goals (i know nash isn't that's why they moved him to center). :P;)

i hope this is a much more exciting game than the last time we faced them...

good grief...umberger, we meet again...

TSN is reporting Halak will get the start in Columbus and Price in TO.

.... and Higgins practising with Koivu and Tanguay, per the practice lines listed.

I suppose Dandy practicing on D with O'Byrne is only to complete a pair, and give Dandy a slot to practice in (i.e., he's not slated to play D in a game), although it does suggest:

  • Dandy not playing on Friday; and
  • Brisebois likely on D on Friday, in which case I am expecting O'Byrne on Saurday.

well here we go the breaks are over and we have a big stretch of games and a tight schedule right up to the christmas break

coming off our last layoff our first game back against the ducks was ugly, that has to be avoided this time but its hard to say what kind of legs we will have in the 1st

wouldnt it make more sense to be

1 more sleep until

2 more points but only if the team plays

3 full periods

to me that makes more sense.

Oh man! Beautiful!

I bow to your superior numeracy! :P:D

I positively cannot wait until tomorrow night's game. I am expecting a dominating game played by the Habs. Didn't they shell-ack us last year, 3-0, the night we hung Gainey's number to the rafters? That sort of sacrilege needs to be avenged, thrice-over!

And ... um ... burger? Other things need to be avenged as well. There is certainly enough motivation, I think, for the boys to dig in right from the opening face off.

We got in too big a hole after our last mini-off-season when we played the Ducks. There is absolutely no way the Habs can let that happen again. Hopefully Carbs has ran them pretty hard all week to keep the intensity levels high. I'm looking forward to seeing the Higgins-Koivu-Tanguay line.

GO HABS GO!

Good tweak on that. It won't be as easy as 1-2-3, but the boys are hyper-aware of the flat start against the Ducks (silly name for an NHL team) and should be ready for this one. I beliebe Habs win this and go 9-1-1 all over the Jackets (another silly name).
