  • Hockey Day in Canada: Habs/Sens

    The Canadiens play a very important game against Ottawa to keep the battle for 1st alive. After falling short against Toronto, the Habs can climb within a point of 1st again with a regulation win.

    The Habs managed to handle the Sens without Heatly and Alfredsson earlier this week but will face a different team tonight as they are both back in the lineup and playing on home ice.

    Ottawa has never been too friendly a place for the Habs to play, last year’s Hockey Day in Canada meeting was a complete debacle with the Habs getting shelled for 8 goals in a disastrous loss.

    Ottawa’s defence and goaltending has been mediocre at best, allowing 4 goals in each of their past 4 games.

    If the Habs hope to compete they’ll need a full 60 minutes and not a third period vacation like Tuesday night.
