If there was ever a time to beat that pesky Daniel Briere and the Philadelphia Flyers it would be now. Giroux and Pronger BOTH out. Good news for Montreal! Hopefully we can string together three consecutive wins. Have we managed that at all this year? I get the feeling we haven't... Which just means we're due for a big winning streak! :D

Notes on tonight's game so far:

1. Carey, not surprisingly, starts again.

2. Chris Lee is one of the refs. Against Philly. Should be... interesting.

3. Moen, Gionta, Gomez... and Diaz all not at practice today. Diaz is believed to be injured, as he also missed practice yesterday. Emelin is back in tonight.

Good.

However, if Diaz is out does Weber move back to D?

It'll be good to have Emelin back in against the Flyers, but still not liking all this injury bug going around. Anyone know how injured Diaz might be?

On a more positive note, here's hoping the Habs can string together three W! GO HABS GO!

Nice to have an Emelin to throw in there as a spare part. ;)

The Flyers not having their top scorer and #1 D-man should be to our advantage, but in my eyes it only means a couple of hungry players will be taking their spot trying to make an impression. We've played the stronger teams pretty tough this year. I hope the absence of those two don't lead us to take them lighter. They've been hot.

P.S. Another awesome GDT. :)

Pretty debatable over which team has worse injuries right now. Philly's missing their leading scorer and their captain, in addition to a good young player. But don't forget that we're still without our captain and without our number one defenceman, in addition to missing our de facto number two center. Both teams have enough depth players right now that those injuries are unlikely to affect the outcome of the game. It's going to be a hard-nosed battle tonight and the team that takes advantage of its opportunities early is going to have a big advantage. It comes down to the old JM adage of goaltending and special teams for me tonight.

Budaj

Claude Giroux, who killed the Canadiens in their Nov. 25 visit to Philadelphia, has a concussion and is out of the Flyers’ lineup indefinitely. Ditto Chris Pronger. The Canadiens have their own injury woes.

With Brian Gionta on the shelf, both teams meeting at the Bell Centre Thursday night will be Captain-less.

And Andrei Markov has yet to suit up this season.

Ditto Ryan White.

Tough game, this NHL hockey.

Darwinism on ice.

And the danger level creeps up a few notches when the Flyers are involved.

Philadelphia sits first in the Eastern Conference and has scored 106 goals, tops in the NHL. The Flyers are 11-4-1 without Pronger.

Scott Hartnell has 15 goals, rookie Matt Read has 11 and ageless Jaromir Jagr has 10. Rookie Sean Couturier moves up from the fourth line to fill in for Giroux, centring Hartnell and Jagr.

The Montreal Canadiens are coming off consecutive wins and will try to record three straight victories tonight for the first time since a four-game winning streak from Oct. 26-Nov. 4 when they face the Philadelphia Flyers.

if we take the highest scoring team in the league lightly then this will be a train wreck
