I can't stress how important it is that the Habs win this game. A loss to the Flames and Christmas will be canceled in my home. I'll also have to quit my job as some of my colleagues will make life unbearable.
We are an unpredictable bunch. Flames have been that way too, but they're on a roll trying to grab top spot in the NW Division (like the new Southeast only that none of the teams suck, they're all just as average as each other). They've been good on the road lately and have Iginla which should scare anyone. This game needs to see the PP wake up. The good news is that we are unbeaten in Calgary's last 4 visits (a wild 5-4 win in 2006, 4-1 win in 2004, 4-2 win in 2003, 3-3 tie in 2001). I think they've only won one game in Montreal in the last half dozen visits or so. Being in the heart of Flame country, I too hope for a victory. I'd prefer one in February when they visit, but I'd prefer two Flames conquests to that!
