I wonder if the fans give a warm salute to Davidson for his return? Do you think there will be a highlight video of his play with the Habs before the game? I sure hope so! Be so heart touching to see him tear up before the game. Ok, I am in one of those moods today... 1 week and I return to the warmth and escape this damp cold weather. YAY!!! GO HABS GO!!

No lineup changes other than Drouin for de la Rose.  I had wondered if Mete would get back in after Jerabek struggled at times last game (particularly in terms of giveaways, something he has had a penchant for doing in Laval).

Galchenyuk is happy Drouin is back, will it translate to the scoreboard?

So Hudon ####ed up a board battle and it led to a goal. Will he get the Galchenyuk treatment?

Romanuk and Galley are lost... first they tell us that Cammalleri hadn't scored since January. (that was his 4th goal this season), then they tell us that Puljujarvi scored, when he didnt

 

and now its 2-0.

Not sure what the announcers are smoking saying that Cammalleri hasn't scored since January 2017...

 

You know that thread about not enjoying the presence of ex Habs? He deserves to be there as he has been a Habs killer and scored on us while he was with the Kings. (Twice)

Given the manner in which he was treated on the way out, I can't even get upset when Cammalleri kills us.

Habs best line tonight is their 4th line. So that's trending towards a loss.

It's time to nail vets not named Galchenyuk to the bench tonight if they aren't working hard.  Enough is enough.

Just wait for the two week road trip.

 

I’m almost certain the outcome of the season will be decided before the New Year.

I said last week, don't start Price 5 games in 7 days.  Its too much. 

 

He looks fatigued the last couple games now. 

 

Its been too many games in too short a stretch. 

 

At least we get a break this week.

So without risk of sounding like Commandant, I would have scored that Edmonton 3rd goal.

I'm rooting for Niemi. Probably in the huge minority there.

I want niemi to play well too. 

They need to be able to have a regular backup.  No goalie can play every game.

I don't think anyone is actively rooting against Niemi...

 

At best there are people who don't believe in him.

That's a good point.  If ever there was a time to start the backup goalie, it was against a "weaker" visitor.  Unfortunately Price looked bad on every one of those 4 goals and directly caused one of them by mishandling the puck at a point in the game when there was still a chance for his team to get back in to the game.  What's next, a goal by Brandon Davidson ??

 

I am not looking forward to the upcoming 7 game road trip, not to mention the next game versus NJ.
