kinot-2 Posted April 3, 2017 Report Share Posted April 3, 2017 IT'S ANOTHER SUNNY DAY IN FLORIDA, SO WHAT'S BETTER THAN TO HAVE ANOTHER GAME IN FLORIDA? TONIGHT, THE HABS TAKE ON THE FLORIDA PANTHERS 7:30 PM ET CANADIENS @ PANTHERS FS-F, SNE, RDS, TSN 690 Radio. Less than a week has passed since the Canadiens and Panthers last met at the Bell Centre, with the result that evening being a 6-2 rout that would clinch a playoff berth for the Habs. Days later, the Habs travel to Sunrise in hopes of a repeat; this time with an opportunity to lock up the Atlantic Division title and a likely first-round playoff matchup with the New York Rangers. A four-game win streak has seen the Canadiens shoot ahead in the division race, while four consecutive losses have led to the Senators dropping to third behind the surging Maple Leafs. With four games in six days to close out the regular season this week, the Habs will have little rest heading into the post-season. Of course, with the momentum they’ve been riding since the beginning of March, that might just be a positive. It’s a different story altogether in Florida, where the Panthers are looking to snap a four-game losing streak tonight on home ice. After being eliminated from playoff contention by the Habs last time out, however, at this point games mean little for anyone but players with something to prove. The Canadiens were all over the Panthers last week, and it was reflected on the scoreboard. A 6-2 win was a fitting scoreline for a game the Habs managed to take control of, and one that has doubtlessly added to the confidence of a team that is rolling into the playoffs. Can the Habs win a fifth straight as they continue their road trip in Florida? Stuff to digest: Thornton is a healthy scratch. If habs win they clinch the Atlantic division title. Going down to the game? Be prepared to pay $58 for a seat in the middle of the ice 20 rows up. kinot's GDT Record 20-13-3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
