Everybody hold hands and pray that Marty as an off night and the Habs can pull off a miracle and get 2 very important points...
Most likely result unfortunately is the Habs will get 1 PP for the entire game against the disciplined Devils and Marty blanks the Habs 3-0...
Or better yet...the game will be tied 1-1 til until about 5 mins left in the 3rd. Then the Devils will score on some fluke goal from from the blue line, then they'll add an empty netter and the score will finish 3-1
If you listened to Pat Burns (who is a lot more attached to the Devils than the Habs) this morning - he said the Devils will have to brace themselves for a tough fight, and that the Habs will come out very strong after all that happened.
It might have been a bit of "political corectedness" on a Montreal radio station - but I've heard him blast the Habs before other games. I tend to think he believes what he says, at least partially.
I think that this is one of those turn around games when it comes to the Habs. Their backs are up against the wall, there's a huge amount of pressure on the team right now and a single win could go along way to putting them on the right track. Hell, at this point, I just hope they play their ***** off and hope for the best.
If they're lack lustre this game then without sounding like I'm overreacting too much, but I think it will be next to impossible to make the playoffs and we could see some major changes come deadline and off season.
