So, this is a big one on a big stage tonight. On Hockey Night in Canada, for Bob Gainey jersey retirement night. Jackets will be wearing #23 jerseys during warmups and pregame. Game time has been pushed back to 7:30.
Jackets need 2 points to keep pace with Phoenix, St. Louis, and Colorado. Montreal needs a win to keep pace with Ottawa and Pittsburgh.
This will be tough, but I put vCash on the CBJ - they play well when they shouldn't.
Haven't played in Montreal in almost four and a half years, gotta love the NHL scheduling stooges. In our two meetings there we've won both so keep the streak going. I believe last year after the deadline the Rangers were seven points but they still got in in the end, don't loose hope yet.
