The Montreal Canadiens make their long anticipated home debut tonight at the Bell Centre vs the visiting Ottawa Senators.
The Habs looking to go 4-0 will have their first real challenge against a very strong Ottawa team. The Habs hope to take advantage of a tired Senators squad and what will surely be a boisterous rowdy home crowd who hasn’t seen real NHL action in quite some time. I will be in attendance and am quite excited about le Tricolore’s return to the ice.
The Sens are coming off another shootout victory over the Leafs while the Canadiens have been resting since Saturday night. The Habs will have to contain Ottawa’s skilled attack. Particularly Jason Spezza, Daniel Alfredsson and Dany Heatley who are playing strong. Jose Theodore will have to improve his play if they hope to limit Ottawa’s potent offence.
If the Canadiens can take out Ottawa and improve to 4-0 a lot of heads will be turning our way.
