Guy Carbonneau is trying to do something with the options he has available.
Michal Ryder, scratched, finally. Will it make a difference?
Maxim Lapierre and Ryan O’Byrne have been called up and will start tonight. Hopefully their eagerness to play will bring some energy to a team lacking in many departments.
Good news is tonight they play Boston, a team which they’ve dominated recently. The Bad news Boston’s continually improving and have 1 more point then the Habs with one game less played.
The log jam in the Eastern Conference is starting to form, with 8 teams all within 4 points of each other. All teams excluding maybe Washington are still very close to 8th.
