The Canadiens left the pressure cooker that is Montreal right now and hit the road to play the Flyers in Philly.
Dropping 6 in a row at home this should have the Habs breathing a little easier.
Michael Ryder sits again and Sergei Kostitsyn starts his first career NHL game. Hopefully he can provide a spark to an offense that is lacking in just about every department. Pretty lofty expectations for a first ever NHL game. He will play along side Koivu and Higgins and
perhaps enthuse Saku who is paying with little or no interest at all.
If the Habs lose again I heard Bob Gainey is calling up Raphael.
