Would love to see Captain Koivu back in the line-up tonight.

That "C" seems to be wearing Kovalev down.

What the hell's a Pekka Rinne anyways?

Sounds like a Finnish STD.

What's Bonk spelled backwards? That's right.

Crush Trashville!

GO HABS GO!

The "C" looks fine on Kovy and the team is doing well. ;) Saku isn't coming back tonight and it is better he is missing now (and not come playoff time).

There is no doubt in my mind that Habs WILL win this one. GO HABS GO!!

You can add Shea Weber to the injury list.

He took a puck off the foot in the game Tuesday night in Toronto.

Also Jordin Tootoo was a healthy scratch on Tuesday, he 'should' be back in the line-up tonight. ;)

lol, what's bonk spelled backwards....all this time i never even noticed hahahaha.

this needs to be a shut down effort on the habs part.

I hope we crush them.

5-1 Habs.

I don't think anyone ever realized, else it'd be used a lot (and it will be, maybe :P)

Kovalev did the same thing last year. He wants to be the Captain. I'm sure he didn't have the flu then. He needs to shoot more and be smarter with the puck. That was a crap penalty he took in Boston and it was selfish. He's trying to do it all himself and giving up the puck too often at our blue line.
