Tonight marks Jose Theodore’s return to Montreal and his chance at a little revenge after being traded for David Abeischer at last year’s trade deadline.
Every traded player relishes in the chance to play their former team, but in this case the stakes are even higher.
Will the volatile Montreal fans welcome him back or boo him mercilessly?
Tonight will also be the return of long time Canadiens whipping boy Patrice Brisebois who may very well be playing his final game in the city of Montreal. It should be an emotional night for Brisebois who spent over 13 years with the Canadiens organization.
David Abeischer will also be ready to play against the team who didn’t believe he was good enough for them.
All the ingredients for a great game.
