According to TSN, neither Demitra nor Walz practiced today and will be game time decisions.

Really hopes Plecks get sammy and Kovy to adapt to him.

They're the star veterans afterall.

Going to be a thight game and the Wild are on a losing streak they are going to be real hungry getting the first goal tonight is going to be very crucial

GO HABS GO

Hoping for a Huet shut-out.

I really hope they come out flying tonight - they've had a long layoff and cannot afford a slow start.

The Habs will need to play a patient game and not get into penalty trouble. The Wild are tops in PK and #2 on the PP - wow!

In the end, I think our depth will win this one, especially if Demitra and/or Walz can't go. (Come on second line - click tonight).

I can see a 4-1 Habs victory.

Goals by Perezhogin, Souray, Koivu and Kovalev

Go Habs Go - I'm off to throw 500 vbucks down on the Habs.

I love the -M. Koivu, S. Koivu- in the lineups. Like we are going to forget which Koivu is on what team, Not making fun, just gave me a chuckle.

No game for me tonight, I'll be at my toothfairy's place.

Wes Walz not playing would truly help the Habs, he's a great puck possession player, and if he doesn't play, it really hurts their PK and bottom 6.

Keep your eye on Petteri Nummelin.

Montreal and Minnesota are the only two teams in the NHL in the top 5 in both PK and PP. this should be a low scoring game. 3-2 Montreal.

What? Why not just put Dandenault at forward? If Cube isn't ready to come back and step right in on defence, then he isn't ready at all.

edit- the article says he's actually played forward before. Still doesn't make alot of sense to me.

Less icetime on the fourth line than defense will let him work off the rust. Speed, likes to hit, hmm....lol whatever, as long as he's back
