It will also be interesting to see who gets the start in goal for Montreal. Antti Niemi has had a rough time in recent games, and just came off a back-to-back set. The other option is Michael McNiven, who has yet to play a minute of NHL action. Despite not playing at the peak level, the Stars offence is still capable of doing a lot of damage. On the last game of the road trip, it may be worth the gamble to see what the rookie can offer before the team heads home to the Bell Centre.

I predict we play Alzner, Benn and Deslauriers. That being said we have a chance to win this one IF we continue to play the way we did in Florida. Hope that the D is strong enough to help out Niemi although we should start McNiven in this one. 

I agree start the kid. If he has a rough start you can always pull him and the Habs actually have been pretty resilient this season. No one wants to get down but if we didn't let him get buried we could still come back. You never know he may look all right. If he has any rebound control he'll probably do better.

I have the Junior game on the tube.

I have my HDMI cord hooked up to the TV, so my wife can watch the Habs/Jrs. too, otherwise, I'd do the same as you.
