The matchup


Canadiens come home feeling good after trouncing the Calgary Flames 6-2 on Saturday to take some of the sting away from disappointing performances in Vancouver and Edmonton. The Jets had a 6-3-1 record going into their Saturday night game in Columbus.



Spreading the wealth:


Dale Weise scored three goals and newcomer Paul Byron had a goal and assisted on Devante Smith-Pelly’s first marker of the season as the third and fourth lines continue to produce offence. The one problem area is finding someone to play with Alex Galchenyuk and Lars Eller on the No. 2 line. Alexander Semin has been a healthy scratch the past two games and Brian Flynn has produced only one shot in each of his two games on the No. 2 line. Coach Michel Therrien doesn’t like assigning numbers to his lines and he might have a point because the Galchenyuk line has produced five goals this season, while David Desharnais’s No. 3 line has 10 and the Torrey Mitchell, or fourth line, has eight goals.



Showing some power:


The Canadiens have at least one power-play goal in four of their past five games and are 6-for-14 during that stretch. The power play ranks ninth in the NHL with a 23.8 per cent sucess rate. Byron provided the Canadiens with their second shorthanded goal in Calgary and the penalty-killers rank fourth in the NHL with a success rate of 88.1 per cent.



The other guys:


Blake Wheeler is leading the way offensively for the Jets with five goals and 12 points. Bryan Little and rookie Nikolaj Ehlers have each scored four. The big surprise has been Michael Hutchinson, who started the season as the backup to Ondrej Pavelec. Hutchinson has forged a 4-0 record with a 1.75 goals-against average and a .949 save percentage.



Price back in goal:


Carey Price will return to the nets after two shaky performances in Vancouver and Edmonton. He gave up nine goals in those games, but he still boasts a solid 2.01 GAA and a .936 save percentage.



Injury report:


Both teams have avoided injuries. The lone casualty is Winnipeg defenceman Grant Clitsome, who is on the injured-reserve list with a back injury.

Thanks for the thread, kinot!

I'll be at this game! My sister bought me tickets for my birthday. I'm incredibly excited.

Enjoy a 3-0 Price shutout. I am predicting this in the void of an hour that won't really exist as we fall back I think? So like the hour I am not sure the predication actully exists. We can skate with the Jets and I think Patches is going to light it up tonight!!! I'll be going to watch our Alouettes get some payback on Edmonton tomorrow afternoon I hope.

You're Welcome, Clues. You might want to take some baked cookies with you tonight, it might help. :)

Semin or Byron tonight? My money's on Byron.

I have little doubt that Therrien will dress Byron... though Semin could still return if it is Eller that suffers the coach's wrath as the next press-box victim.

I would think Semin stays out. Byron had a good night in Calgary. Eller got regular minutes in the third, indicating that Therrien was over the "punishment" from earlier periods. I wouldn't be opposed to Flynn drawing out in favor of Semin though.

Agreed... but I would still like to see Semin with Pacioretty-Plekanec and Gallagher with Eller-Galchenyuk if that is the case. The Jets are a physical team... it would also be a good opportunity to see Tinordi-Pateryn playing, but I doubt that will happen.

Just a little reminder to everyone to please save the Doomsday parade. We'll be alright without Carey and it doesn't sound like he'll be out long.

Well, there's no B2B games until the 27th, so I expect Carey to be back waaaaaaaaaaay before then.

As a matter of fact, I understand that Carye's undergoing a blood transfusion with Patches as we speak. ;)

The Jets are a really, really good team this year. We'll need one of those earlier season performance like the Blues game.

I thought the Jets were a football team? Wait...lol....thanks what's your name for another good report for us.

Condon to start. Price out with a lower body injury. Tokarski's been recalled. (via Twitter)

:unsure:

They tweeted him???

Well, Price is out for a week and I woke up with a cold. And now it's pouring rain. I'm not so sure cookies will help my luck. :P

I've had good luck with attending games, though! So hopefully it continues tonight.

His first home game at the Bell i believe. A little added pressure for the kid.

Usually when your best guy goes down, the team tries to up their game as a unit.

Should be interesting to see how the boys respond.
