GAME NOTES

TV: RDSHD, TSN

I thought I'd add a little musical choice as a theme for the game, and I really think it will be a knock-down,drag-out brawl of a game, so I chose a song with the title "Only for the weak" - by the band In Flames, enjoy :)

It looks like Ryder is expected to be available tonight although he's not likely going to be in the morning skate. (He has to pass his physical first and the Habs will be on the ice shortly.)

I got a bad feeling about this one...THe Habs are 24-20-8 since the Lock-out against the Leafs...a losing record.

Reimer is expected to be available as backup for the Leafs tonight but Scrivens will start.

Goals may be a bit hard to come by tonight as both teams are in the bottom five in the East for goals allowed per game (Montreal is 2nd, Toronto 4th).

Jamie McLennan actually did a comparison between Price and Scrivens for TSN to see who was better. Scrivens isn't in Price's league yet, and may never be. Just found it amusing anyone would take the time to compare it.

It's because "Leaf Nation" has a tendency to overrate every single goalie they have coming out of their junior system. I remember people calling Reimer, "Getting Price the same year a couple rounds up"

Random stat to pass the time, the Leafs lead the NHL in 5-on-3 opportunities and 5-on-3 PP time. On the flip side, the Habs lead the East in total 5-on-4 time...the Leafs are 2nd.

That is comedy gold.

Price is top-5 in the entire league. Scrivens is...well.

A McLennan - Scrivens comparison would be more appropriate

Yes, he's in. I imagine he'll play with Bouillon, Subban with Gorges.

As for line combos, Ryder is with Desharnais and Galchenyuk according to Pat Hickey. If true, they'll look something like this:

Pacioretty - Plekanec - Gionta

Galchenyuk - Desharnais - Ryder

Prust - Eller - Gallagher

Marc Denis is reporting Ryder is with Galchenyuk and Eller though so who knows.

Tough loss not having Diaz in there..

I hope those lines are wrong.. keep Gally with Eller, they've been playing well...

Anyways, GO HABS GO!

Kind of a cliche, but the first goal tonight is HUGE. After the last game, the boys really need to come out flying...

I hope Chuckie brings his physical shoes today. Someone is going to need to make space for DD on that line.

Ya, I had to put up with Justin Pogge, I believe that's his name, was better than Carey Price.

I'll pray to the Hockey gods that the Leafs fans will feel the shame I felt when I was at the 6-0 beating we took a few weeks ago!

Go Habs go!!!

Really hope this is a well officiated games with few penalty's.

Always makes me nervous when we dominate but cant score. Refs are being pretty generous to the leafs....

Yet, who was the last good goalie the Leafs have developed? Mike Palmateer?
