Nikolai Kulemin is going to show the Habs why he's the next Cam Neely but better.

I'm saying 5-1 habs...

Time to show the world we are cup contenders and the Leafs are the Leafs.

I felt a loss last night but I feel a win tonight.

Time to exorcise those ACC ghosts now that Captain Can't-Make-A-Decision is gone.

It takes one whiff of Brisebois to make me eager to see Bouillon again. Carbonneau, your indulgence for your former copain is worse than picking up your absinthe bottle.

I also have a better feeling for tonight. The second line will wake up, and the ATAK line is going to come back to where they left in the TC.

5-2 Habs, hopefully at least.

GO HABS GO!

I really dont think the leaf D will be able to handle our top 3 lines. I predict a high score.

4-2 for the Habs.

Since I was right about the first goal of the season


Latendresse, AKost, Kovy and Kostopoulos will score.

The Kostitsyn brothers A. and S. will take it to the Leafs tonight ,and each score a goal.
The Habs will win 5-2 and let the Leafs know right from the start of the season who is the better team.
Go team Go !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PP has to be executed on. Give the puck to Kovy, and let him set up.

Tanguay needs to grow some balls and play harder.

other than that, just finish...

Play the AK-TP-AK line on PP as well. Carbo went away from that and I don't know why.
