Now I think they should win this time vs Buff...would really like to Price in nets, he deserves it!

I agree I think Carey looked good in his last start and Halak didn't have his best game. I am not taking anything away from Halak he did great during the road trip and was due. I loved how the team rallied and we won. I also don't mind seeing a change up as Halak lost his last two against Buffalo, as I would like to see Halak get the next start against Pitts for the same reason ... just try something. If Carey gets hot let him play some , back to back switch up.

Happy New Year Habs Fans.

Let's start off the New Year as we finished the old....with the "W".

I predicted 6 out of 7 on the last road trip and the Habs came through. Good work boys!!!

Looking at the schedule for January I'll call 10 wins out of 13 as very possible.

13 games , 7 at home and 6 away for the newly proven road warriors.

Three sets of back-to-back matches is not going to be easy.

10 wins will place us nicely for a rough February schedule.

Feb. is only 7 games but all are tough with the two Flyers games being back-to-back.

5 of those 7 are at home so that should help.

So let's start the year as we finished the last.....STRONG!!!
