No.

 

On a separate note, I have a decent feeling about tonight. If Gallagher is indeed back, I’d like to see what the lineup looks like on paper. 
 

I never bring this up, but I expect a solid game from Price tonight. My spider senses are tingling on that topic.

Given the number of odd man rushes and breakaways this team gives up, Connor McDavid is almost sure to add to his long list of highlight reel goals.  That goal he scored in Toronto the other night was incredible.

Based on his body of work this season, I expect him to be a bum until he proves otherwise every time he starts.

Chiarot out, Fleury draws back in. Gallagher should be back as well.

 

Since I posted in a GDT, that guarantees a loss.

Also, Habs are 2-8 in Thursday games this year.:blush:

 

Just got to shut down 2 players, surely they can manage that? (Although habs left last years MVP wide open for tap-in, so forgetting about key opposing forwards wouldnt be a surprise)

I wanted to come in and tell you that Price tends to play well against some Western Canadian teams and that he did well this year out west against every team outside of..... Edmonton.
 

But instead I will share this quote with you:

 

6. Despite the Oilers having the fewest wins in the NHL since 2009, they have owned Price. He is 3-8-1 in his career against Edmonton with a .859Sv% and 3.70 GAA. Some stats are inexplicable and this is one of them. His career Sv% is .917 with a 2.49 GAA, yet the Oilers have lit him up. He had a .960SV% in a win on March 12th, 2017, and a .906Sv% in a win on March 10th, 2009, but in his other ten starts he’s posted a .889Sv% or lower. Amazing. His best performance came against the playoff bound Oilers in 2017. Against those other teams, who floundered near the bottom of the standings, he struggled.“


... and tell you that I have super powers. Price will play well tonight. Enjoy the game 🙂

Nope. At this point I would be pleasantly surprised if they manage to win a game. A loss just moves us closer to a lottery pick

Is Chiarot just getting some rest? Or is he, too, injured?

Just a quibble, but they already have a lottery pick. The 1st round pick of every team that doesn't make the playoffs has a shot at #1.

That was actually a pretty good defensive period for Montreal.  It has been a while since they had one of those.

If the Habs weren't wrecked with injuries I believe he would have seen some time in Laval during his early struggles.

It would have been nice if Price had stopped that one.
