  • Big Test

    The Canadiens boast the NHL’s 3rd best record behind only Detroit and Northeast Division leading Ottawa, whom they’ll face today on the road.

    The Senators are on record pace and suffered only their 2nd loss of the year in their last game Vs the Capitals.

    The Sens may be a little tentative after their loss, but more likely will be highly motivated to keep the Canadiens 2 more points below them.

    The Habs will have a real test against arguably the best team in the League and will have no room for error if they hope to steal another two points on the road.

  • Division Matchups

    The Habs are in Boston tonight in another Divisional match. This is the week in the NHL where every team plays in their respective Division and the time where the packs will start to separate.

    The Habs of course want and need to do well this week to keep a healthy distance between them and Boston, Toronto and Buffalo.

    Carey Price starts tonight, even after Cristobal Huet posted the shut out and won the game on his own against Buffalo.

    Carbonneau wants both goalies involved with meetings against the Senators and Leafs upcoming.
