  • Changeup

    The Habs haven’t been too convincing as of late.

    Tonight they visit the Senators, whom they handled fairly easily last week and came away with a 4-0 win. Confidence should not be an issue, should it?

    New lines for tonight:

    Latendresse – Koivu – Tanguay
    Higgins – Plekanec – Kovalev
    A.Kostitsyn – Lang – Kostopoulous
    Laraques – Begin – S. Kostitsyn

    It’s safe to say the Canadiens strong start is now over.

    The Habs are hurting. On the ice they have looked terrible in 2 of their last 3 games. Individual players are starting (continuing?) to struggle. An added dose of injuries and suspension haven’t made it any easier.

    It shouldn’t be any easier tonight welcoming the Flyers who no doubt will play their normal physical game. A style that continues to give the Canadiens fits.

    The Habs have owned the Flyers in regular season play, but they’ve also owned the Bruins going into Thursday’s game. We all saw how that turned out.
