This edition of the Habs has been overcoming the injuries all season and are still in the mix for a playoff spot,they seem to thrive under adverse conditions. the work ethic of these players is what has made this possible. So never underestimate our chances, it's rare that the Habs aren't in the game in the 3rd period. Most of the games we lose are by one goal and we haven't given up many empty net goals either, so smile and bask in the knowledge that when we ice our full complement of players we can win on any given night against any opponent. :D:D:D:D:D:D

3-1 Habs .....we're due to beat this club

Yep, I'm with ya: 3-1 Habs with 3 penalties . . . if Halak tends net. If not, then we probably register a big, fat loss. I watched last night's game where the Florida announcers reported that Halak requested a trade. Were they feeding Habs fans a bunch of bull or is this true? Sad to say, I can actually see the front office doing something foolish like that because of their track record with good goalies. Naaahhh, they wouldn't do that . . . would they?

Devils only played half a game tonight as half the lights in the arena went out.

BTW - Leafs lost


Is the game over or are they in wait mode??? Hopefully the game runs 3 hours overtime and we get an exausted Brodeur tomorrow. I know,,,,,,i'm evil. :P
