  • Rebound

    How will the Habs respond to a demoralizing late 3rd period loss against their most hated rivals?

    Cristobal Huet is playing again, a vote of confidence from Guy Carbonneau after Huet had a less than stellar game against Toronto.

    Huet has played well this season except in his two starts against Toronto. There’s nothing to suggest he won’t come back and play his normal game tonight against the Sabres.

    This is the last Habs home game before a 4 game road trip against all 4 of their Division rivals.

  • Habs Leafs #2

    Not much needs to be said when these two teams meet.

    The Leafs played last night and lost in New Jersey, but they usually find a way to up their game in Montreal and tonight should be no different.

    Or should it? The Canadiens are only 3 points back of the Conference leading Ottawa Senators and have been playing excellent hockey.

    The powerplay in particular has been lethal and the Leafs penalty kill is a quite mediocre 21st in the league.
