Figure it out ;)



Getting offensive: These are the two most productive teams in the NHL on offence. The Canadiens are averaging a league-best 3.87 goals a game, while the Bruins are second at 3.78. There are some differences — the Bruins rely heavily on their top two lines, while the Canadiens are better balanced with third-liner Dale Weise leading the team with eight goals. In the past, the Canadiens have taken advantage of undisciplined play by the Bruins and have feasted on the power play, and that could be a scenario this time around. The Canadiens have scored at least one power-play goal in seven of their last nine games and rank third in the NHL with a success rate of 25 per cent. The Bruins top the league with a 35-per-cent success rate, but Boston has the worst penalty-killing unit in the league, stopping the opposition only 70 per cent of the time.
Players to watch: The Canadiens have an NHL-best eight players with at least 10 points. Tomas Plekanec leads the way with 14, while Max Pacioretty, David Desharnais and defencemen P.K. Subban and Andrei Markov each have 13. Pacioretty ended a five-game point drought with a pair of assists against the Islanders, while Weise extended his consecutive-game points streak to four. He has five goals and an assist during that run. David Krejci leads the Bruins in goals (7) and points (15) while Patrice Bergeron, Loui Eriksson and Jimmy Hayes each have four goals and seven assists.

Ruins stats,, 12 GP,,6-5-1, 13 PTs., 43GF, 40GA, RD Record 5-1-0, last 10GP, 6-3-1
I don't need to tell you our stats.
Jonas Gustavsson (3GP, 3W, 0L, 2.00 GAA, and a .914 SV%) should get the call in net for the bears, as Tooka has a losing record against us, and sucks anyway.
Injued are Kelly, Pastrami and Seidenberg.
Everything is up and up for the Habs.

Ah, yes.....Chris Lee.....the zebra otherwise known as the "Equalizer."

So, we can expect:

1. At least five uncalled penalties on Boston;

2. One Habs goal waved off;

3. Endless goalie interference right in front of him not called; and

4. A game where it *might* not even be kinot's fault if the Habs lose.....but it probably will.

Hey, at least there won't be any stupid fist pumps after the anthems.

Gustavsson will probably play like a Vezina winner, and first-game debut player Vatrano will likely get the game winner, or a hat trick, or something equally ridiculous. Remember, it's Chris Lee night. The players are only window dressing for the men in stripes, who will decide the outcome.
