this will show us "who's got game" in our roster, some players have to step up there games, in order for us to step away with 3 - 4 points out of this week.
if we win all 3 games we'd climb alote in tha standings.

Philly's hurting on D, Jersey isn't invincible lately, and hopefully the Leafs are still in the tank come Saturday.

It'll be a good test for us though. Hope the boys are over the flu, and that they remember that last game against Philly.

Ribeiro's line needs to proove they can't be shutdown by tougher opponents, and I think he's more than capable of doing so. Who's going to stop him? Tomas Kaberle? Pff...

Koivu was a little off last night, but I expect him to be flying. No need for CJ to tell Saku what to work on, you could see he was well aware it wasn't his best.

And lastly, I'd like to see Zednik with Koivu, at least against the Leafs. While Ribeiro's line is producing with Zednik on it, Bulis, for all his good, is just not a first liner. It's too painful to watch him squander so many oppurtunities.

This is a true week for us to step and show the rest of the league that we are contenders, not pretenders! I think Theo will have his A game and Julien will have his troops playing good sound hockey.

GO HABS!

Time for me to have another old fashioned Toronto vs. Montreal party at my house!

I live in Toronto and all my friends are Leaf fans, though, so it looks like I'm going to be outnumbered yet another time....

Tough week indeed. Philly always plays us tough and all those ex-Habbies seem to have career games against us. They look like two games against TO were just what they needed to get out of their funk. NJ is always tough, but without Stevens they are a less effective team. They are slumping a bit and that should be one heck of a defensive masterpiece. The Leafs-Habs rivalry is still alive and well. TO is battered with injuries and not playing all that well since Xmas, so we have to take advantage of that.

No we don't... We need 6!!! I'll be happy with 4, but not 3. Both Philly and Toronto are owed a reckoning.

Everyone now, take a deep breath....let it out slowly... there...

Lets keep an even keel. We don't have the horses to compete with these three teams on a consistent basis, yet. I hope the team plays well (no blowouts), but realistically what can we expect, rather than hope for? Of course we all hope they win all three, but expectations should be that we stick to the system and give ourselves a chance to win in the third in all three.

I'll look to see how they bounce back if they take an early loss.

I'd be quite happy if we can win one and tie one, along with playing well enough in the other. I'll also have the same feeling about this team next week, no matter what happens this week.

all those teams are playing preatty crappy hockey not affriad of TO or jersey, the only one thats going to be tough challenge is philly, TO honestly doesnt got game if they lose like that 2 games in a row to philly, and jersey lost stevens, it'l take em a while to tweak there defence.
and look for cole and neil to eat there biast fist and comment on TO's sub-par game saturday.

Normally I'd say this would be a very tough week, but all three of these teams seem ripe for the picking right now, while the Habs are still relatively hot. Philly, Toronto, and Jersey are all looking to establish dominance over one another in the East, and the pressure will be on. The Habs, on the other hand, are looking to make a statement. They want to show the East that they are no longer the Habs of the late 90s--that they are tougher, more skilled, and hungrier than before. Any way it turns out, there should be a playoff atmosphere this week. I'm looking forward to it.

Prediction:

Philly: Loss (too tough at home. 4-2 loss.)
Jersey: Tie (Brodeur will rise to meet Theo and stone us all night. 1-1 tie.)
Leafs: Win (with Mogilny, Nolan, Kaberle out, and Eddy cold, we are simply the better team. We are going to shellack them. 4-1 win.)

Although I'm predicting 3 points out of a possible six, it wouldn't surprise me to see them steal another. The two Habs I'll be watching most closely will be Ribeiro and Komisarek: the former to see how he rises to the challenge of playing tough conference games and the latter to see how effectively he contains (and punishes) big Eastern forwards, particularly Roberts and Leclair.

I would tend to agree with the description but not with the prediction. Has mentioned all three of these teams are goint throught rather difficult time and we have played particularyl well against these type of teams this year. We have competed with both Philly and TO when they where at there best and I would say that we have progressed since while these team are now having more difficulties.

It is a paticularl goodébad week for the moral of the troups and I would tend to say that after the last two games where we came out kind of flat we will be very well prepared for Philly this thursday. Jersey will be a very good test for Ribeiro while the other two games should be good opportunity for Ryder and Ward to show what thy can do against a tougher crowd.

I am not going to make any prediction but I would say it will be either all bad or all good this week so either 5-6 or 0-2 points in the week. Given the information I provided I would say 6 pts and one of these team will get hammered with 5-1 type performance.

Are you always that downer?

I'm pretty positive about the fact we will rack up 4 pts in those 3.

NJ and TO are cold these days and Philly are nor verry hot. Add to this the injury to Desjardins and we have good conditions to pass trough with succes.

You had me until Cole and Neale would talk about Balej. Most likely they don't even know who Montreals farm team is let alone their highest scorer.
