IT'S GONNA BE A WILD TIME IN MONTREAL TONIGHT

MINNESOTA IS COMING TO TOWN.

7:00 PM HNIC, TVAS, TSN Radio 690,,, and other places.

STUFF, FLUFF AND NUTS AND BOLTS.

Montreal, beleagured by injuries, called up Dietz and forward Charles Hudon from their farm team, the St. John’s IceCaps. Both are expected to be in the lineup for the game,

Darren Dietz will take a spot in the Montreal Canadiens lineup vacated by their star defenceman.

Dietz, 22, has played in 163 American Hockey League games and was called up to the NHL team Friday. The rest of the day was a whirlwind as he got on a plane from Newfoundland, preparing for the morning skate prior to a game against the Minnesota Wild.

Dietz, a 6-foot-1, 213-pound defenceman, has 16 points and 59 penalty minutes in 58 games this season.

This will be Charles Hudon's second recall of the season. He is currently the leading goal scorer for the St. John's IceCaps with 20 goals in 58 games. Many analysts have dubbed him the best prospect in the organization, and were surprised that he wasn't recalled earlier in the season, (not sure why they were surprised, cuz I'm not <_< ).

Hudon's emergency recall is more puzzling, as the Canadiens have not announced any injuries to their 13 healthy forwards. If we assume that Mike Brown was injured following his fight on Thursday night, there needs to be one more injured player in order for Hudon to comply with the emergency recall rules.

Whether Minnesota (31-27-10) can capitalize on the Canadiens' depleted back line remains to be seen. The Wild have just seven goals over their last four games and struggled again offensively in Thursday's 2-1 home loss to Edmonton.

But enough about them.

It's one thing to not have the low fives anymore, another for Price to be out, and Gallagher with his spunk, but with PK not in, it just does not feel like the Canadiens. This is not to take anything away from Galchenyuk but got an empty feeling in the pit of my stomach. If anyone has ever fainted or passed out, it is that wavy sensation that your body is not really there.

Just feels like Canadiens Light.
