Another historic night for the Canadiens, the 100th season in their history begins tonight in Buffalo.
So with the pressure and expectations what they are, how will the Canadiens come out of the gate?
How long before the first “Fire Carbonneau!” and “What have you done Gainey” banter ensues? Or will it come at all this year?
Carbonneau will start Carey Price tonight, and Jaroslav Halak tomorrow in Toronto. I like that idea. Break them in slowly, both see game time, and the pressure/blame is distributed should the Canadiens do the unthinkable and start 0-3 or even worse.
Cheers to a good 08/09 season!
