Here are the Canadiens - le Glorieux

Rangers at Les Canadiens

Habs will play the first of three straight weekends of back to back games when
they play in Columbus Friday night and host the Rangers on Saturday.
Here’s how we can expect to see the Canadiens’ lineup
Gionta – Plekanec – Bournival
Galchenyuk – Eller – Gallagher
Bourque – Briere – Pacioretty
White– Desharnais – Prust
Subban – Markov
Bouillon – Gorges
Emelin – Diaz
Price (starting)
“In this league, when you compete, you’ve got a chance to have success. The kid line plays a great game,
and not just because they score goals. These kids have exemplary work ethic and they're always looking to
get better. They are constantly on the puck and cause a lot of turnovers,” “It’s all about having fun.
That’s why we play. When everybody is contributing and sacrificing for the team, that’s when hockey
becomes a great game. "For some reason we just have that chemistry," said Eller, who has been briefly
moved to other lines at times recently to try to shake up the attack. "Things just come naturally.
"Everybody's playing on their instincts, so there's not too much hesitation."The habs are 3rd in PP at
a efficiency rate of 23.7, while their Pk is a respectable 5th at 86.5 %. Carey Price will be in net for the
Habs, sporting a .933 sv% and a 2.12 GAA. He was impressive in stopping 44 out of 45 shots, against
the Tampa Bay Lightning. a sv% of .978 in that game, for a record of 7-7-2 on the season.
Here’s how we can expect to see the Rangers lineup
Moore -Boyle-Miller
Talbot (starting)
Rick Nash practiced with his teammates on Wednesday afternoon at the MSG Training Center
for the first time since suffering a head injury in a game on October 8th. Nash wore the bright yellow
non-contact jersey during the practice, which ended in a series of conditioning sprints
for the entire roster. Friday Practice Report: Lineup Changes In Store For Montreal Game:
Though head coach Alain Vigneault was not on the ice at Rangers practice Friday morning---he
was already in Montreal attending to personal matters---his fingerprints were
all over several changes that will be made in his team's lineup when the Blueshirts face the Canadiens on Saturday night.
First and foremost,
Cam Talbot will start in goal with Henrik Lundqvist then slated to start 24 hours later when the
Rangers host the Los Angeles Kings Sunday night at Madison Square Garden. Also, veteran
center Dominic Moore will return to the lineup after a seven-game injury absence, and Brandon
Mashinter will be the team's healthy scratch at forward. Finally, Justin Falk will replace
Michael Del Zotto on defense, likely to be paired with John Moore. Talbot will be making his fifth start
for the Rangers this season. The 26 year-old rookie has won his last three starts and is 3-1-0
with a 1.97 goals against average and .933 save percentage. In his last start on November 7th, Talbot
backstopped a 4-2 victory in Columbus, and he has yet to allow more than two goals in any
start this season.The Rangers are 16th on PP at a 18.0 rate, while also 12th, on the Pk at 83.1 %.
Montreal has long been a difficult city for the Rangers to not only win in, but be competitive in.
Last season the Rangers were shutout in each of their two games at the Bell Centre, and they
are winless in their last eight visits to Montreal. The Rangers have scored just one goal in
their last five games at the Bell Centre. Their last win in that building was in March of 2009.
Bon Match!!!!
The Substitute Teacher
Budaj makes one of his 27 saves on that shutout evening on Rangers home ice.

They Rule There To!
Ya! The Habs Rule!

TSN radio:

With New York set to host the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday, head coach Alain Vigneault will give rookie Cam Talbot the start tonight versus the Canadiens. The Ontario native is 3-1-0 with a 1.97 goals against average and .933 save percentage in four starts on the season.

Vigneault is expected to have center Dominic Moore in the lineup tonight after he missed the past seven games with a strained oblique.

Emelin with Soupy tonight

Murray sits.

Don't think we'll find anybody surprised with that decision. Stoked to have Boom back in the lineup. Not expecting much the first few games but still a major upgrade IMO.
