Final Game of the regular season, Montreal @ Toronto

Let's get this going

Looks like Joe Colborne will make his NHL debut, he was called up by the Maple Leafs

Hope we win this decisively now that Toronto can't make their draft pick any higher.

If Buffalo loses tonight, we'll finish 6th no matter what, right?

Unless they get a point.

yes, we got 2 more wins, that's unless they lose in OT which they can still pass us by a point being 2 back

I hope the Habs pump them in embarrassing fashion. One final slap in the face before the Leafs go on the golf tour. Maybe if Price plays he'll get his another shutout.

Dear Hockey Gods:

The last time I went to an end of the season game between my beloved Habs and those dreaded Leafs, the "Unthinkable" happened.

Since then I have been a good boy. I pray to the "Rocket" every night before I go to sleep, and I make sure to behave to the best of my ability as our patron saint "Beliveau" would want me too.

Since I'll be going again this Saturday, can you please grant me this one request?

Please watch over our beloved Habs, allowing them to be healthy for the start of the playoffs.

Sincerely,

H10H

P.S. If you can provide our boys a big can of "Whoop Ass" to bestow upon the Leafs, I'd really appreciate it.

Now I'm wavering. Philly looks kinda crap without Prolonger, and their goal tending is a question mark. But Prolonger might be back, the giant knob that he is.

Sh-tsburgh? Maybe no Crosby and Malkin, and a nervous Fluery. They'll want revenge though, big time. And Crosby might return.

So my list in order of preference is still:

Booins
Sh-tsburgh
Philly

Let's assume Crapington finishes no 1. No way we finish 8th, so there's that problem out of the way.

Problem is, with the flux in the top 4, if we finish no. 6, in theory we could play any of Philly, Pitts or Booins.

I we finish number 7, same thing I think.

Correct me if I'm wrong by the way.

So what to do?

Answer: Habs must know which of the 3 would be the best draw. I don't . But they're the pros.

Therefore Habs should watch the Buff and Pitts games at the Hotel tomorrow night, and not drink too much of possible just in case, and see what happens with Buff, Philly and Pitts.

Then, knowing which team they want to play, if a loss is required, tank it agaist Laffs, while sitting Subby, Price and anyone else possible, or, if a win is required slap Carey and Subby in and torch the leafs.

I hope it's the tank option, because if there's a key injury against Laffs due to the fact that we had to try, and play our guns, I'll ritually disembowel myself at my desk on Monday. And you tube it.

Rest Price, please. Freak injuries always happens in Toronto. I'd rest Moen and Halpern too, if it means it's last game of the year for Pyatt and Weber (which I hope so, not because they're bad, but because it would mean no injury).

ATM
Darche - Gomez - Gionta
Pouliot - Desharnais - Pyatt
White - Eller - Weber

And in the lineup, if Pacioretty can't play:

ATM
Darche - Gomez - Gionta
Pouliot - Desharnais - Moen
White - Eller - Halpern

unfortunately, cant say I'm confident with that lineup... replace Darche with Pacioretty, and it's another story (thus bumping Eller out ot the lineup for a Darche - Halpern - White effective fourth line).

How 'bout stompin' a mudhole in 'em, and walkin' it DRY!

I look forward to seeing how Colborne looks tonight. As far as the Habs go, I see a win by three or more goals. Go for it, boys!

You are right about the matchups possibilities; we can't face the Caps, but can still get any of the 3 other teams. But I don't think Habs will tank or anything, they'll get as many points as possible. What if we finish 7th "on purpose" to play the best draw and get Buffalo in ECF (giving them home ice)? It's a longshot but it's technically possible, so teams want to put every chances their side. Also, it's bad karma to choose your opponent; never turns out the way you wanted it to.

You mean lower. I could be wrong, but Booins have the Laffs first pick round 1. (Burke, my god, what a retard.) If the Laffs can outpoint St. Louis, they move one lower in the draft, thus screwing the Booins even more.

They therefore do have motivation.

My son, your prayers have removed all Jinxes from my beloved Habs, and you can rest easily tonight. Cheers,
God.

PS. The Family Guy shaky Monkey or whatever is funny but he really edges me when I'm a bit 'overstimulated' on a Friday night, or in pain on Saturday morning. Could you switch to Stewie for a while? Till the end of the playoffs? I think it would be good luck for our beloved Habs. Cheers again,
God

Agreed, a player's answer.

I think too much like a fat old scheming office guy now, and not enough like the young player I was.

You are right: Every single game should be fought for , that's hockey.

But come on, if we can rest Subby and Price, it's good strategy.
