My hope is that Emelin plays so well that they have no reason but to leave him in the lineup.
This is his chance to grab the bull by the horns.
I bet my life regardless of how Emelin plays he is out when AK comes back. No chance JM will let go of his precious Diaz and once again he is showing his incompetence by playing Weber on the 4th line who has been one of our top dmen since the season started.
At rexall, much like any NHL building in Canada, Habs fans come out in huge numbers. Probably 30-40% wearing red.
What's the bell centre like when the oilers come to town? I know it doesn't happen often, but is oiler support noticable in montreal?
Around the 5-10% mark at most. Most fans of an opposing team is the Leafs fans when Toronto is in town or Bruins fans when Boston comes. Other than that, RDS crew scatter the crowd for the odd away fan when the away team scores.

Good luck tonight, I'm hoping for an 8-7 SO win, 7 goals by Pacioretty and 7 split up between the kid line (Eberle with SO winner, obviously). Fast and fun hockey. I'm impressed by the respect shown in this gdt, it's such a nice change from reading Nuck gdt's when they play the Oil. Cheers.
