Was the line-up confirmed by Gainey? Those are the exact same lines I'd use. Weber on D please!


Anyways : Go Habs Go!

Hopefully, D'Agostini out and a willing Laraque in. Without that, the Habs are gonna be crushed badly.

I'll be amazed if we can get 2 pts, but 1pt would be great too.

There hasn't been any word whether Wideman will play tonight but he missed Tuesday's game against Ottawa after taking a number of hard shots off the body over the weekend. It appears as though Julien is going to play things safe with anyone who is dinged up since the #1 seed is wrapped up. The feeling is that Wideman could play tonight if need be but he'll probably be rested until the weekend.

On a related note, Boston called up Vladimir Sobotka this morning indicating that Chuck Kobasew might miss the game as well. Kobasew didn't practice yesterday so Julien will likely give him the night off also.

Habsfan18's blood pressure doesn't particularly enjoy this time of the season.

that would basically mean no O'Byrne and no Schneider.

Gorges-Komisarek
Hamrlik-Brisebois
Dandenault-Weber

Schneider is clutch, he'll be on duty.

Schneider-Weber PP would be quite decent.

The sleeping giant awakes tonight to crush the Bruins and instill fear into Bruins fans everywhere. The Montreal Canadiens strategically planned to finish 8th in order to face the Bruins in the first round and crush them in a 4 game sweep for the ultimate centennial gift to the fans.

After reading part of the B's GDT (it's like a bad habit you know will kill you, but you can't resist...) I never wished for a Habs win as much as I do for tonight.

How about we clinch tonight?! Habs by 2.

GO HABS GO !!!

Times like these are when our defectors are hurting the most. You think losing Schneider and Markov would hurt that much if we would have Korneev and Emelin ready to graduate from the AHL?

Ahhh, life sucks.

GO TRASHERS!
