I went to a game in Tampa 2 years ago and it was Deshardins in net against the habs. He completely shut us down. We lost 4-1 I think.

Protip: We lost and Desjardins played really well.
That game was during a horrific slump. The Habs barely tested Desjardins with legit scoring chances and this is a completely different team. 12 of the 18 skaters who played that night won't be in the lineup tonight.
I love the idea of getting Pateryn in there tonight, we definitely have a hole when it comes to a big defensive first defenseman.
I'm less enthused with taking White out of the lineup, mostly because he at least seems to be our best faceoff man. I assume this means Eller will be taking the big draws tonight? He's seemed decent. Desharnais's really struggled in the circle, can't have him taking draws in our end.
