Rangers @ Canadiens - Sat 7PM EST
 
Big game tomorrow to get back on track and maintain first in the Northeast! Looking forward to the return of BGally and the new look lines.

No Rick Nash again for the Rangers tomorrow.

It appears MDZ may be out too.

With 11 of the next 15 after this game on the road, this is a game the team needs.

LePoche69 02-22-2013 03:53 PM

I'll be there! Cool! I'm sure this game will be more intense than last one between the 2 teams. 2 games in few days between the same 2 teams is always fun.

pls win

Mrb1p 02-22-2013 04:04 PM

We might lose this one. The rangers will come out crashing and banging really hard like a torts team. Habs will get caught in the first and will comeback stronger in the 2-3. Prust will have another strong game

rangers don't really crash or bang, they play a defensive style game...

any word if gally is a go?

Et le But 02-22-2013 04:26 PM

I hope Lundqvist is playing.


....he will still get a shutout though.

McSorleyStick 02-22-2013 04:27 PM

So Torts said 2 bad teams ?

lol

Teufelsdreck 02-22-2013 04:32 PM

The element of surprise won't be there when the Habs meet the Rangers within days after their first meeting. Both teams will have learned something and I doubt the Habs resort to repeated icing as a strategy. Rick Nash won't be there as a game changer and if Brendan Gallagher is fit the Habs will have another arrow in their quiver. I hope the Habs learned from playing the Isles that having the superior record doesn't mean much at faceoff time and that having success against one team doesn't necessarily translate into comparable success against another.

He will have to get clearance tomorrow but with him practicing on a line with DD and Pac, I assume the clearance is expected.

StellerEller 02-22-2013 04:41 PM

The 3 key factors for a Habs win:

1)Fix the special teams, at least gain the zone on the PP
2)Use last change to give Galch (and Gally if hes back) tons of icetime, they've come a long way since the first few games, let them loose at home
3)Give the Subban-Boullion Pairing more time, Reduce the Markov-Emelin pairing. The latter needs to play softer minutes, and it will help them get back into good form.

It got them a loss.
I hate Torts, but he's a good coach, he will adjust his team and they will come out really strong and they will be in our face.

I've been in a cave since angrily turning off my tv after last night's game, what are these new look lines you speak of? Thanks!

haha, so have I until HF lured me back just now. Actually heading to MTL tomorrow to catch the game so better win, particularly after last night and the fact that we have a huge road sched ahead. Best to remember what the BC sounds like when we get a big win.

So, Nash out - beneficial to us
Anderson out - beneficial to us (on Monday) BUT also beneficial to Leafs tomorrow. They need to start losing some games. I'll say one thing about them: They capitaliza and score when it counts. Refs handed them that game at the end of the third, but to their credit they scored on the 5 on 3.

We've got to do that. Must win special teams battle vs. NYR!

Sry to ask but do you have any source or link for MDZ?+

Crimson Skorpion 02-22-2013 07:12 PM

Might not even tune in. For the first time in over a decade, I may just pass up a Habs game to see the Lachine Maroons. Yikes.

SirClintonPortis 02-22-2013 09:33 PM

Beginning of a losing streak. We lose. 3-1.

overlords 02-22-2013 09:36 PM

reminder to anyone who'd like to do GDT's, there are many games available.

Scottyb123 02-22-2013 09:49 PM

Is Gallagher in the lineup tomorrow?

Yes he's playing

Teufelsdreck 02-22-2013 09:58 PM

Winning this game would clinch the season's series against the Rangers. That would be sweet.

InglewoodJack 02-22-2013 09:59 PM

Anticipating a loss. A win would absolutely be huge though.

Crimson Skorpion 02-22-2013 10:01 PM

So does White sit out now that Gallagher is back, or will someone else get the pinch?
