Boston @ Montreal - March 8th, 2011

How do you guys want the Habs to play tomorrow? Are you expecting any call ups? Do you want any call ups? Excited?

DISCUSS!

No callups. White in for Pyatt, Mara in for Weber. Play our game, beat them the same way we beat them 8 of the last 10 times.

As much as i'd love to see a few Bruins heads filled in, we do not have the team to make that happen.

Agree with above and also the refs will be all over this game from the start too.

Calling up Henry & co. would send the wrong message to the B's. I'd like to see the Habs beat them the same way they always do - with skill and speed.

One concern I do have is that I'm not sure we have an answer for a player like Lucic, who can park himself in the crease and cross-check our prize goalie. Maybe Martin will add Mara in for a bit of size so we can try to push these bullies to the perimeter. Mara and Sopel lack speed, but the B's aren't terrifically fast anyways.

As for being excited? @#$&in right!

Biggest thing going for us is that Ak-gomez-Eller are no longer a line. Just play our game that made us 3-0 against them. I think it goes back to us winning.

B's fan. Really can't wait for tomorrow's game. It is big for both teams. I have a question for you all, where can I get the most up to date line combos and injuries? I am in charge of our GDT for tomorrow's game and want to be as accurate as possible, Thanks!

The Broons may be ahead in the division but last game showed how low they'll go to pander to a dumb bloodlust. Yes fights may fill an American arena, but tomorrow it's Montreal, where fans prefer hockey. Here's to not sinking to their level, just beating them on the scoresheet, as usual.

Probably be a lot less physical than most believe, as it always is with rematches.

I'd be tempted to play the exact same line-up as Saturday night, which I think was basically the same line-up as last game in Boston, only except we'd have Cammalleri and Sopel in for Darche and Spacek.

The only changes to consider are White and Mara. Absolutely no call ups.

I could see Martin putting in those two guys but I could also see him making no changes. That's just how he rolls.

How bout we just play like we did in the first period of the Tampa game?

-Oh and there were certain individuals on our team who embarrassed themselves last game in Boston, and I'm not talking about fighting. They know who they are, and they had better ****in bring it tomorrow night.

The battle on HF will be greater than the one one the ice.

You will likely see the same lines as we put out on Thursday night. Patrice is back with the team. Andrew Ference and Steven Kampfer are out for us.

I want a hard fought game and no injuries for either side.

Could you imagine the hf drama if DD or Gionta cheap shot Lucic from behind ... at the end of the 3rd period when we're up 5-1

The Bruins won the last game for the first time of the season. Just do what you usually do; beat them on the scoresheet. We're having a good PP sequence right now, this should be enough for their goons to stay shy or else they'll pay on the PK.

Skate, score, let them take penalties. Julien deserved a fine for putting out the goons with under five minutes left last game, and I have no doubt whatsoever that Boston getting away with the garbage it did last time they played the habs was a direct contributor to the nonsense that ensued between the Islanders and Pens a couple of days later.

My guess is Boston doesn't goon it up at all, but if they do, it'll be interesting to see if the refs and/or league respond. Is the "new" NHL really a thing of the past? Does the league want to see more teams like the Islanders and more concussions to players like Crosby? This game is a situation where Boston could get itself into trouble they don't need. The smart thing for both teams to do is simply try and win the game.

I think we'll beat them the way we usually do, bait them into dumb penalties and kill them on the PP.

Mara and White should play to add some grit.

I'll be at a concert in Toronto. I'll watch Express on my computer after the show in the hotel, I guess. Go Habs.

I bet the game will be boring and crappy after everyone is expecting a vicious game.
