The Habs lace them up tonight to kick off the first pre-season game of the 2006/2007 season.
All eyes will be on Saku Koivu to see how he plays in his first game since going down with a terrible eye injury last April.
The Canadiens are giving a lot of prospects a chance to play and tonight we’ll see action from:
- Carey Price
- Guillaume Latendresse
- Duncan Milroy
- Kyle Chipchura
- Jonathan Ferland
- Ben Maxwell
- Matt D’Agostini
- Jon Gleed
- Ryan O’Byrne
Other than the concern surrounding Koivu, the pressure will be on Latendresse to show last season’s strong camp was not a fluke.
The new look Bruins will have Marc Savard, Zdeno Chara and rookie prospect Phil Kessel in their lineup.
