FYI, if Bishop is not good to go, the Bolts will dress both their AHL goaltenders, one of whom finished a game at 10pm last night (after which they both drove the 5 hours to Montreal), so that has to be a good for ya.
Superbowl weekend is the only time I enjoy 1PM games.
I have a bad feeling about these next two games
Actually I have the opposite feeling. Confidence is always key and Habs confidence has to be sky high after that dominant performance in bean town. That was the easiest win against a Bruins team in a long time. The bruins had three straight games of 6 goals scored. When the Habs play a team game where everyone is hard on the puck they usually win. Also, it appears Emelin may also be out of his funk. Habs are so much better when he plays well.
The young guys will never get better if they don't get a chance to prove themselves. That's what kind of frustrating about this team, they call someone up, give them 8 minutes of ice time on the 4th line, and they expect them to prove themselves.
I'm not saying that we need to put rookies on the 1st line and play them 20 minutes but c'mon. Look at how Detroit gives their players chances, and they always seem to pan out. A huge part of a rookie's development is his confidence, and we're not inspiring confidence by playing them the way they're being played.
Okay now let's get a big win here boys! I hope Price and Subban both play killer games to prove that Yzerman made the right choices.
