I was waiting on Brendan Shanahan’s decision regarding Milan Lucic’s hit on Ryan Miller before positng the game blog today – because the outcome of that teleconference may have a huge impact on what type of Sabres team the Canadiens see tonight.
Montreal could be in for a seriously difficult game against a very motivated club who feels as though they’ve been unfairly criticized for “turtling” after Lucic went and proved that he’s still one of the cheapest and most disrespectful players in the league.
On top of everything else – Hal Gill will not play as he’s out with the flu.
I guess I may have jinxed him with all that talk about Alexei Emelin yesterday.
Its time to show the NHL that the Canadiens can win at home.
Go Habs Go!!!
