uncivilengineer Posted February 2, 2011 Report Share Posted February 2, 2011 Game 52 of the Season - Time Is Running Out and Another Freakin' Back to Back! 9:00pm Newfie - 8:30pm Atlantic - 7:30pm Eastern - 6:30pm Central - 5:30pm Mountain - 4:30pm Pacific Shown On: RDS Tonight's game features the 7th place Canadiens (obviously) VS The 11th place Panthers At the Bell Centre Previously, in hockey....(read: last night) The Canadiens came off with a hard earned win against the Capitals with a 3-2 win in the shootout. Captain Gio gets two goals and the game winner in the shootout. The Panthers also played last night and came off with a loss of 4-3 in the shootout against the Maple Laffs (who by the way has a guardian that makes tasty syrup for their waffles). Of note, former Canadien Chris Higgins didn't score in the shootout to keep the Panthers alive..... figures. What it means.... With a shootout loss last night the New York Rangers sit at 62 points while the Canadiens sit at 61 points. A win or a tie will results in the Canadiens taking 6th place as the Rangers have played one more game. Rangers do not play again until Thursday vs the Devils, while the Canadiens will play another back to back weekend with the Rangers on Saturday, and the Devils on Sunday. So, we meet again.... The last time these two teams met was on New Year's Eve that resulted in a 3-2 OT win for the Canadiens. Prior to that, the Canadiens and Panthers met on October 30 that resulted in a 3-1 win for the Panthers. Projected Lines Same as the Capitals game, can't see much wrong with it after they clicked after the haze of the week break wore off. Only question is whether or not Mr. Price plays or whether Bald Auld will take a shot at Panthers, either way it should be a show. As for the Panthers, well, who cares about their lines, but it is almost guaranteed that Vokoun will be playing in net. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
