A LITTLE NAME HISTORY

In 1909, John Ambrose O’Brien created the Club de Hockey Canadien, which translated simply means Canadian Hockey Club. Ambrose wanted his team to appeal to Montreal’s francophone population and is often referred to as “The Habs” or “Les Habs,” an abbreviation of “Les Habitants.” The H in the logo stands for "hockey" -- though it is often mistakenly thought to mean "Habitants."

In 1971 Nashville, a nine-inch fang belonging to a saber-toothed tiger was discovered during the construction of an office building. When it was time to name the franchise, three choices were presented, Ice Tigers, Fury and Attack. Owner Craig Leipold then added his own submission to the vote, Predators. Once the contest closed, Predators ended up being the successful pick.

Super job on your first GDY HTL, see? it's not that difficult ;)

------------

Some lineup info just heard on RDS: Gomez is not completely healthy, he can skate just fine but his shoulder is not 100%, he cant take face-offs properly. He will play but on the wing of Nokelainen. When asked, Gomez said he was OK with this, all he wants is be in the lineup again and help in whatever capacity he can.

The headline tells you all you need to know about the Canadiens as they prepare for the Nashville Predators Saturday in Music City.

Gomez, who's missed nine games with an upper-body injury, is expected to start as a fourth-line winger, though how long he remains there is uncertain.

Michael Cammalleri, nursing a bum leg as the result of an Edmonton Oiler's knee in the first period of Tuesday's game, will be a game-time decision, having sat out Thursday's victory over the Coyotes in Phoenix.

Andrei Kostitsyn remains out with an unspecified lower-body injury. Yannick Weber will return to action on defence, sending Alexei Emelin back to the press box, and Peter Budaj will make his second start in goal to wrap up a three-game Habs week.

Friday's Practice Lines

Forwards:

Pacioretty - Desharnais - Cole

Moen - Plekanec - Gionta

Darche - Eller - Palushaj

Gomez - Nokelainen - Blunden

I don't expect this to be a very high scoring game, so hopefully the Habs are on the right side of the score sheet.
