7:30 @ Montreal - Getting Right Back Up Again

It's on VS, so the entire country gets to see the Habs fans run the show for a night .

Let's see if they've got what it takes to bounce back in a must-win game.

Go Sabres.

6-1 Habs. Sabres defensive gaffs and goaltending woes will continue, but this time they won't have the scoring to back it up.

Andrei Kostitsyn (2)
Tomas Plekanec (1)
Benoit Pouliot (1)
PK Subban (1)
Max Pacioretty (1)

Mike Grier (1)

Miller getting a game of rest is clearly the panacea that this team needs.

Habs win it 4-1 and its never even close.

Stafford gets another hat trick. Main board complains he gets all his goals in the same games, and thus is not really as good as his stats.

Kaleta makes a (borderline) legal hit. Habs fans cry murder on the main board.

I think this game has a 3-2 OT contest written all over it. Lets hope the Sabres come out the victor.

So Ruff has now made it pretty clear that he has 0 confidence in Patrick Lalime, he is essentially a cheerleader that doesnt look good in hot pants. With that being said, what do you think is more likely: Enroth plays well and secures the back-up role, we pick up a respected back up goalie, or nothing?

Lindy didn't seem too down on Butler in his interview this morning.

Enroth will have to be huge since Price has great numbers against us (.936 SV%, 2.02 GAA). Enroth's strength--lateral movement--will be put to the test against the Habs who love to go cross-ice with their passes, especially on the PP. I think he'll perform fairly well, but the Sabres are giving up too many shots and aren't playing tight enough defensively. I think the Habs win, 4-2.

Ennis
Leopold

Kostitsyn
Gionta
Pacioretty
Pyatt

Enroth is the first goalie since the lockout (and essentially in NHL history) to pick up his first two career wins via shootout.

Stafford and Leopold score in regulation, the Habs tie the game midway through the third. Vanek is quiet during regulation but comes back in the shootout to blast one past Price. Enroth stops all 3 Montreal shooters.

Games in hand. Wins needed. Back up goalie in. Suspect defense. Habs good.

FAIL.

Habs - 5
Swords - 2

I personally would've gone with Millsie tonight and Jhonas tomorrow, but I guess we'll see.

Enroth in net = Montreal win. Then again, Miller in net = Montreal win, too.

Canadiens defenceman Jaroslav Spacek is doubtful for tonight's game and Brandon Nash has been called up from the Hamilton Bulldogs of the AHL.
Thoughts on why?

No idea actually. Spacek has been pretty banged up lately, there have been several occasions in the last 2-3 games (including last game against TO) where he's been slow to get up after a hit or crash into the boards. Not sure what exactly is wrong with him though.

EDIT: Just heard lower body injury. No specifics other than that.

EDIT2: Our D for tonight provided Spacek is out:

Hamrlik
Wisniewski
Subban
Weber
Picard
Nash
