Ice Chips

According to TSN, neither Demitra nor Walz practiced today and will be game time decisions.

SerialSeb 11-22-2006 01:24 PM

Really hopes Plecks get sammy and Kovy to adapt to him.

They're the star veterans afterall.

Going to be a thight game and the Wild are on a losing streak they are going to be real hungry getting the first goal tonight is going to be very crucial

GO HABS GO

Hoping for a Huet shut-out. :bow:

Habsfan18 11-22-2006 01:34 PM

GO HABS GO!

Habs win 4-2 tonight.

Goals by Koivu, Latendresse, Souray and Johnson.

Tuggy 11-22-2006 01:36 PM

2 goals from Kovalev tonight in a 3-2 Habs victory.

big_habs_fan 11-22-2006 01:45 PM

I really hope they come out flying tonight - they've had a long layoff and cannot afford a slow start.

The Habs will need to play a patient game and not get into penalty trouble. The Wild are tops in PK and #2 on the PP - wow!

In the end, I think our depth will win this one, especially if Demitra and/or Walz can't go. (Come on second line - click tonight).

I can see a 4-1 Habs victory.

Goals by Perezhogin, Souray, Koivu and Kovalev

Go Habs Go - I'm off to throw 500 vbucks down on the Habs.

Ross MacLochness 11-22-2006 01:57 PM

I love the -M. Koivu, S. Koivu- in the lineups. Like we are going to forget which Koivu is on what team, :biglaugh: Not making fun, just gave me a chuckle.

Hotstreak 11-22-2006 02:00 PM

Big win tonight! 2 goals from the captain S.Koivu :yo:

Phil Parent 11-22-2006 02:09 PM

No game for me tonight, I'll be at my toothfairy's place.

Wes Walz not playing would truly help the Habs, he's a great puck possession player, and if he doesn't play, it really hurts their PK and bottom 6.

Keep your eye on Petteri Nummelin.

Whitesnake 11-22-2006 02:24 PM

Going to see some show tonight, will be going for some Canadiens Express when I come back.....

I see a 5-1 win!!!!

Go Habs, and tons of fun tonight on the Habs Board!!!!:yo:

Raider917 11-22-2006 03:07 PM

Montreal and Minnesota are the only two teams in the NHL in the top 5 in both PK and PP. this should be a low scoring game. 3-2 Montreal.

TheDamned 11-22-2006 03:59 PM

Kovy must be the key player tonight.

big_habs_fan 11-22-2006 04:03 PM

Canadiens.com

At the very bottom - Bouillon is confirmed in for tonights game and is making his NHL debut at forward.

Go Cube!

What? Why not just put Dandenault at forward? If Cube isn't ready to come back and step right in on defence, then he isn't ready at all.

edit- the article says he's actually played forward before. Still doesn't make alot of sense to me.

nic29+ 11-22-2006 04:21 PM

I think tonights game it going to be a close one.

I'll say Habs win 4 - 3.

Once in the AHL - this is his NHL debut at forward

Schooner Guy 11-22-2006 04:27 PM

NewHabsEra* 11-22-2006 04:36 PM

Less icetime on the fourth line than defense will let him work off the rust. Speed, likes to hit, hmm....lol whatever, as long as he's back:yo:
