We can just discuss here until whoever is supposed to make the GDT, makes the GDT

Habs need a favour your the Devils, we can take over 3rd place tonight. Also, we have LeafsNation behind us again tonight, they're basically toast if we don't beat the Sabres.

Both team have had 8 goal games resently, could be an offensive explosion game




6-5 Habs OT

This will be a hell of a game. Hoping that the boys come out strong tonight and put forth another massive effort like in Minny. This game might have a huge playoff feel, which will make for an entertaining game

Buffalo coming off a tough loss and Montreal coming off a huge win, hopefully that works in our favor lol, usually not the case though.. At least we're home.

Buffalo doesn't scare me. If they want to play a game similar to Montreal's, we take this.

I've got a feeling the Habs will be looking ahead to Thursday's game. We're gonna need Price tonight.

L10: Habs @ 7-3-0 / Sabres @ 5-3-2
Possible Returns: Darche, Plekanec, Halpern and of course Engqvist all at morning skate. Sopel seen skating as well. (*credit to CrimsonSkorpion)
Favor night: Habs take on Sabres a team New Jersey is trying to catch. New Jersey takes on Boston a team Montreal is trying to catch.
Winning: Tonight if the habs win and Boston loses in regulation, we'll be 3rd in the East.
Losing: Tonight if the Sabres lose they'll be allowing Carolina a chance they can't afford.

Playoffs Dreams:
Habs @ 6th (87pts) - Sitting 11pts above 9th (One more game played)
Sabres @ 8th (79pts) - Sitting 3pts above 9th (even with Carolina)

I have a feeling Habs win this one in a low scoring game.

2-0

The Sabres have played very intensely against the Habs this year. They have a great mix of size, toughness, and skill. Of course, their netminder is capable of some amazing stretches of hockey. This game will have a playoff-type atmosphere. In a wide-open east, the Sabres have a lot at stake and are a dangerous team. They would also be a strong candidate to pull off a round or two of playoff upsets.

Wearing my vintage Scott Stevens jersey tonight and hoping the Devils can do some real damage to the Bruins tonight.

Go Habs Go!

Not sure what the situation is on the forwards that are currently out, but for Sopel, he is questionable for tonight and more likely to return against the Bruins.

Me too, I just hope that they are completely healthy.

It wouldn't hurt to have Sopel back to block shots, Halpern's face-off play, and Plecky's two way play when the Habs face the Bruins. Plus, I really like Darche and would love to see him come back soon as well. I'm just wondering now, if they all come back at about the same time, who would sit? It would suck to have called up Engqvist and Dawes, only to not play them.

If anyone has any tips or see's anything missing in the GDT I tried making let me know. Will update it. I only took the last GDT's line ups and I switched Engqvist with Palushaj

Thanks, changed Engqvist to center and added in that the D setup in practice was: Gill-Subban, Wiz-hamrlik, Mara-sopel, Picard-weber.

Did anyone else hear Team990 just say Markov took another light skate this morning.. I know that probably doesn't mean much but the thought of him coming back in the 2nd or 3rd round is just crazy
