Murray and Morrow will get a hat trick each.

Red Light Fleury and/or Vokoun will get a shutout.

Bourque - Plekanec - Ryder
Galchenyuk - Eller - Gionta
Moen - Prust - Armstrong

Markov - Emelin
Subban - Bouillon
Diaz - Gorges

Price
That line up just looks so good.

Every singe line. Including Defense . Dangerous.

Really hope Price plays out of his mind against the Pens cuz I will be disappointed if we don't win one of these two games. No more "beating the pends and bruins is a miracle for us". If we wanna contend, these should be games we have just as much chance winning as them. That and NO EXCUSES.

I wonder if Ferrence is going to try to concuss Halpern again. One example in the litany of bruins epic cheapshots.

I think Budaj deserves to start against Boston. He's proven himself to be a good back up and can handle the pressure. Stick him in there, if we win - great. If we lose, it was out back up and price gets some rest.

Personally I think price needs the rest. He seems to be getting a bit sluggish. Not a shot at him but all the goalies this year are getting a beating with the shortened schedule. Let him rest up and be more focused on the very important games. (Notice I said very important, cause regular season games are not as crucial as playoff time)

This is just my opinion though. Hate me if I'm wrong in your eyes, I just wanted to give my two cents go Habs go!

I hope Price Play's like garbage. And Fleury play's like trash too.

Then it's an exciting 15 goal game.

David Desharnais dumbies Chara with a swift uppercut. (Max Pac laughs and they high five)

Then we pull Price and put Budaj in. The score is tied 7-7... 5 Seconds left in the third. PK blast's a bullet shelf we win.

Crowd goes crazy, P.K. Subban and Budaj do a triple low five. Therrien LOL's and say's he only said P.K. and Price couldn't do triple low five.

Then Markov tells a joke.

I'm glad Price is getting the start. IMO this game will be a harder one than Boston, though they both will be hard. Budaj has proven he can handle a tough opponent, lets reward him.

We need to come out and simply worry about our game. Let's not get caught up in the Pens' new acquisitions. They were a difficult opponent then and they are now. Nothing should change our approach to this game. We need crisp passes and puck possession. Our PK needs to be strong, and we can't start trading rushes/chances with them.

We also need the DD line to step it up. I'm not necessarily unhappy with their play, but when we had depth we didn't have to expect every line to produce every night. But now that we're stuck with big injuries, the #1 line at this point is the DD line, and they need to come out firing on all cylinders. I'm not expecting much from the Plek and Eller lines. The former will be solid defensively I'm sure, and the latter has been up and down, we should keep expectations low, though I do like Armstrong on that line.

Hopefully Carey has a solid game and we can come out and force our control over the Pens. They key IMO to the rest of this year, including playoffs, is to not be tentative with our confidence. If we play like we belong where we are in the standings, we'll stop playing to our opponents level.

This is where our depth will cost us. In the next 2 games unfortunately. We would have needed Bourque, Diaz and Prust....

This is also where constantly losing to the Sabres will cost us. We could have went into these two games with less pressure.

At least the team can relieve some of that pressure by looking at the standings. Anyway, just like in the past few years the Habs have a tendency to play decent or above average games vs tougher opposition. To be honest, these days the Islanders and Sabres scare me more than the Bruins and Penguins.

The team just needs to stick to the system and I think everything will be alright.

I'm going all in on the Habs this game with the v-cash, 4-2 with an empty netter

I can't get worried about being inferior to the Pens. As long as their coaching is adequate and Fleury is playing adequate, they are obviously on paper the team to beat, and I never even expected to field the question of whether we could challenge them or not. Even contemplating the question is like a bonus win to me.

Montreal started this 12 game penguins winning streak, maybe they can end it too.

I'd be happy with 2/4 points in these back to back games on Tuesday/Wednesday.

I really hope Montreal ends this Pittsburgh 12 game win streak, and maybe have Gally undress Murray while we're at it.

Brendan Morrow is soooo going to goon it up on us.

I swear, if that washed up old man scores on us, I'm going to throw a fit.

We should have traded Tinordi, Gallagher and a second to get him
