  • Game 27: Habs/Laffs

    Tonight the Habs begin a 3 games in 4 nights stretch against the Maple Leafs, who blow into town fresh off of a 3-0 loss to the Buffalo Sabres. While you would hope Montreal can take advantage of a worn out opponent, Habs-Leafs history tells us to temper our expectations. This game could go any way the wind gusts. As of 11:30 there is no word on who will start in net tonight, or which injured players will be back in the line-up. Here’s hoping the Habs collect 2 points tonight as they face a tough test¬†against Buffalo Thursday and then face Boston in the official 100th Anniversary of our beloved franchise.

    *Edit: Gomez and D’Agostini will be back in the lineup tonight. Carey will make his 9th consecutive start.
