ONE WEEK AGO TODAY THE BIRDS WERE ON THE SHORT END OF A 4-1 LOSS TO THE HABS IN PITTSVILLE.

GOOD STUFF AND BAD STUFF

ODDS ARE 67% HABS AND 33% BIRDS.

The Canadiens are back in action Saturday night when Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins visit the Bell Centre. The Penguins are on a two-game losing streak, dropping a 4-1 decision to the Canadiens last Saturday, followed by a 3-2 overtime loss to the Boston Bruins on Wednesday night.

After a day off on Wednesday — following Tuesday night’s 4-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning at the Bell Centre — the Canadiens returned to the Bell Sports Complex in Brossard Thursday morning and spent most of the practice working on the struggling power play. There was also an emphasis on clean, accurate passes and cohesion. <_<

The Canadiens rank 26th in the NHL on the power play with a 14.2 per cent success rate. Only four teams have a worse record on the PP: Colorado (14.0), Florida (13.9), Edmonton (13.1) and Buffalo (9.7)

.

Coach Michel Therrien went with the same lines at practice that he used in Tuesday’s game against the Lightning. Here’s how they looked:

Pacioretty-Galchenyuk-Gallagher
Desharnais-Plekanec-Andrighetto
Sekac-Eller-Prust
Bournival-Malhotra-Weise

No Thomas?

Subban-Markov
Emelin-Gilbert
Beaulieu-Gonchar
Weaver

Price-Tokarski

kinot-s GDT Record 9-6-1

Christian Thomas will be in the line-up, replacing Malhotra. The 4th line of Bournival-Andrighetto-Thomas is finally one we can get excited about. No more Moen, no more Malhotra... I like it.

A total of 84 NHL games experience. Average age is 21.6 years old.
