5 points separating 4th and the 13th spot. At one point were going to have to go on a streak if we want to separate areself from the pack,This would be a great time to put togheter a streak of wins. Its not an easy week, ottawa,carolina. Well see what are players are made off this week. Looking foward to seing that russian line in action. cant waite.
Tough-guy forward Aaron Downey resumed practising and didn't show any adverse reactions from the concussion he suffered on Oct. 17. But Carbonneau said Downey has yet to be cleared by the team's medical staff and probably won't play tonight.
Habs should be improved but that does not yet mean HAS improved.
We might see a new spark on that 2nd line but it still take 2-3 games to see the full effect.
Second, Ottawa still has enough firepower to take the game away from the Habs. This would NOT mean the Habs have not improved.
IF Ottawa comes with a BIG game, well of course that means they scored some goals and someone is to blame every time.
So don't go NUTS if the new RED LINE gets cought a few times.
It's only that 2-3 games needed.
IN 2006-7 almost ANY team can have a BIG GAME.
The best thing of course is that both teams get to play and the refs don't skrew-up again like in Boston.
Give us a REAL HOCKEY GAME, both teams, and let the chips fall.
