Puck drop is at 7:30 officially but with the player intros, that will be delayed (and if it's like last year, it will be a lengthy delay).  TSN2, RDS, and NBC Sports Chicago have the game regionally while NBCSN has the game nationally in the US.

I expect the first win of the season. The team will be unexpectedly desperate, and presumably they have to start figuring at least some things out at some point.

There's critical, and then there's Cucumber critical; totally forgetting about a win :D

 

That being said, I hope that the Habs come out flying in their home opener. It always seems to be a special night

Yup, hopefully the forwards can bury a puck or two vs Hawks and might help if can have the PP get at least 1 goal sometime soon. After all of 3 games and being 31 teams this year, Habs sit solidly in 31st in goals for/game.

They better find a gear they haven't found thus far, because if they play the way they did in the first 3 games of the season, this one could get VERY ugly.  Hope they find their 'A' game and it's a good effort at least.

"Cucumber critical" - I like that ;) The next step up is to forget about all the Cups the Habs have won, then I will be perfectly positioned to denounce the organization both past and present.

I actually forgot about our win in game 1 for a brief moment as well after last game. 

 

I dont have as comfortable of a feeling about this game as some others. I do think Price will play well but I feel as though we often have trouble against the Blackhawks so it's not the best matchup to snap out of things. It is a cool

matchup for a home opener though. Here's to hoping for a 4-3 game.

4-3 huh just like the Leafs did them last night in overtime.

 

While listening to Leafs lunch they were on about the decision to play Chicagos back up against them and Crawford against the Habs. Said they are by far the better team and that it was a terrible terrible decision. Had a good chuckle at our scoring woes as well.

 

This could be a rough year to be a Habs fan living in the heart of Tarana.

 

In any event Go Habs Go!!!

I have a mix of Leafs and Sens fans surrounding me in this area....and I'm going to taking flak from both if things don't change in a hurry.

Nice goal by Pleks...maybe the quick start will change their luck.

Spending any time passing back and forth behind the goal line while on a 5 on 3 might actually give me a permanent eye twitch...

 

but I'll wait and see where they're going with it.

Andrew Shaw, 2 minutes for having the reputation of Andrew Shaw.

FFS...they let up for A MINUTE

 

How many times has this happened to them, though?  Dominate a long stretch...tons of shots/great chances, but only finish once.  Then the other team gets a few chances and finish 2, and they are in a hole.

One bad bounce and everything falls apart.

 

Did Bergevin accidentally piss off a witch before the season started?

That was a really nice 17 minutes.  Too bad periods are still 20 minutes.  I feel bad for Benn on the first goal - he turned it over but Plekanec and the wingers flew the zone too early and gave him no outlet pass whatsoever.  Price looked bad on the second goal, sliding himself right out of position.
