  • Game 81: Habs/Bruins

    One point clinches a birth in the playoffs.

    It won’t be easy against the Bruins who have been owned by the Canadiens in recent years and have to be salivating at the chance at revenge. The Bruins are in a position to inflict some damage to a depleted Habs team. Help force them out of the playoffs and/or send a message should the Habs take 8th, and the Habs and Bruins dance in another playoff match up next week.

    Mathieu Schneider may return to the lineup and powerplay to hopefully help secure that point.

  • Game 80: Habs/Rangers

    The Habs can clinch a playoff spot tonight with a regulation win over the Rangers.

    The 0 points last night hurt especially bad now considering the Rangers will be battling for their season and sure to leave it all on the ice. The Canadiens are without 2 important men and coming off a back to back home/away game.

    How hurt is Mathieu Schneider? Bob Gainey wouldn’t confirm an injury and TSN reports he made the trip with his teammates.
