  • Theodore on Broadway

    Claude Julien gave Jose Theodore a vote of confidence by starting him again tonight against the Rangers after having a very weak start on Saturday. With back to back games it was expected Theo would sit. I think Yann Danis will get the start tommorow night regardless of Theo’s performance.

    The Habs go into MSG with one of the best road records in the league. Only losing in overtime to the Ottawa Senators. The Rangers are stilll undefeated at home and we can expect another similar tight matchup. Goaltending could very well be the difference again.
    It will be interesting to see how and if the Habs bounce back after being handed their first major loss of the year.

  • Canadiens lose Goalie Battle

    What can you say about that game? That’s the difference between a hot goalie and a struggling goalie.

    The game was almost over before it started, trailing 3-0 halfway into the 1st period on terrible goals allowed by Jose Theodore. Yann Danis got the call to start the second, and some how in the 3rd the Canadiens managed to rally back to within a goal. Had the goaltending been there earlier, the Canadiens would have been in a postion to win rather than still down.

    The Habs pelted pucks at Lundqvist all game but he held his ground long enough for the Rangers to take advantadge of the sloppy habs and go up 5-2.

    Hope it was an off game for Theo, but he has yet to put in consecutive good efforts and I wouldn’t be surprised if Yann Danis starts the next 2 games if he comes up with a good start on Monday.
