The Habs have to get back to the HIGH TEMPO game that they had at the beginning of the year.

Not just for a period, but the whole game. Start to finish.

It's very hard for most teams to match them, but they have to get back to their game

GO HABS GO!

(Sports Network) - One of the fiercest rivalries in all of hockey resumes this evening, as the Toronto Maple Leafs host the Montreal Canadiens at Air Canada Centre.

This is the fourth meeting of the season between these teams. The Canadiens won on October 8, but Toronto took the next two matchups.

The Canadiens were in action Friday in Buffalo and were handed a 3-1 setback. Martin Biron made 40 saves to anchor the Sabres, while Tim Connolly and Brian Campbell each had a goal and an assist.

Richard Zednik scored the only goal for the Canadiens, who have lost three out of their last four games. Yann Danis made 28 saves in the defeat.

Tonight's game is the middle test of a three-game road trip for Montreal. The Habs are 6-2-2 as the road team this season.

Meanwhile, the Leafs lost a shootout contest in Carolina on Friday. Radim Vrbata and Matt Cullen each recorded shootout goals, as the Hurricanes edged Toronto, 4-3, at the RBC Center.

Jason Allison, Chad Kilger and former Hurricane Jeff O'Neill had goals in the defeat, the Maple Leafs' second in a row off a four-game win streak. Mikael Tellqvist finished with 32 saves.

Toronto thought it had the game won in the opening minute of overtime when Mats Sundin took in a pass from Alex Steen and fired a shot in close that was blocked in front and covered by Martin Gerber. Replays showed the puck crossed the line before Gerber kicked it out with his skate, but officials ruled that play had already been stopped.

The Maple Leafs are 8-4-1 on home ice this season.

Toronto has won six of the last eight matchups with Montreal and has taken three of the last five at the Air Canada Centre.

Don't mind who gets the goals as long as captain K picks up the assists. OK, if saku gets them 4 assists he'll reach 300 in 521 career games. Go saku Go.

TORONTO – It’s a safe bet that many Canadians will be parked in front of their tv sets tonight as the Canadiens and Maple Leafs renew their rivalry at the Air Canada Centre. Both teams were on the wrong end of the final scores in their respective games Friday night and will be looking to get back on the winning track with tonight’s matchup.

Riding a three-game road losing streak, Montreal (14-6-3) ran into a steady Martin Biron Friday night, beating him just once in the 3-1 loss, despite outshooting the Sabres 41-31. The Canadiens are 0-2-1 since their last road victory on Nov. 4, after starting the season 6-0-1 away from the Bell Centre.

Toronto heads into tonight’s meeting on the heels of a 4-3 shootout loss to Carolina. The Maple Leafs (12-8-3) are now 1-2 in games decided by the ultimate tie-breaker. Pat Quinn’s troops have dropped two straight, having lost 5-1 at home to the Bruins earlier in the week, and now find themselves in fourth place in the Northeast Division.

Tonight’s contest marks the halfway point in meetings between these two clubs. The Canadiens opened the season series with a win in Toronto, while the Maple Leafs have taken the last two, both at the Bell Centre.

First goal glory: One point that is likely in the game plan for both teams tonight – score the first goal. Claude Julien’s squad is 10-1-1 when they tally first, while the Maple Leafs have had similar success with a 9-2-1 record.

Two in two: Tonight’s contest closes out Montreal’s sixth back-to-back series of the season. The Canadiens have put together a 3-2-1 record in the first game and are 4-1 in game two. The lone defeat came one week ago at the hands of the Washington Capitals. Toronto is playing in its fifth set of back-to-back meetings this weekend. The Leafs are 2-2-1 in game one and have found success in the second matchup with three wins in four games.

Return of the vets: Jose Theodore and Ed Belfour, both of whom received a rare day off in their club’s respective Friday games, will both be back in goal on Saturday night. In his last start, Theodore was on top of his game as he led the Canadiens to their first-ever shootout win in franchise history over the Thrashers on Tuesday, improving his 2005-06 record to 11-4-3. Belfour, for his part, was in nets for the Maple Leafs’ loss to the Bruins but still holds a solid 10-6-2 record this season.

After a top-notch effort against the Thrashers Tuesday, Jose Theodore will look to bring more of the same against the Maple Leafs Saturday.

All jokes aside the Gazette is reporting this morning that Danis will get the start with Theo playing the leafs and sens...

I won't be watching the game till the third cause of work.. but I have sent out several prayers to all the religious denominations I could think of for a strong first period and a dumb penalty-free game...

I can't promise any thing but the smart money says that Ganesh has our back on this one..(like all deities..hes a habs fan).

I saw a rumour on Bob McKenzie's blog that the Hurricanes are going to put Nergal, a minor Babylonian diety who has a huge upside, on waivers this weekend. BG has to do something before its too late. We got Begin off waivers we can get Nergal too.

Ufff! Habs match in Czech TV finally! :D After two unlucky cancelation, and replacement those matches by Philly resp. Sens games (due the Swedish lobby and their interest about Foppa&Alfie probably :D) we will watch this big contest tonite. :)

Like a Kladno patriot I’ll be satisfied with a draw between two of our players. (.. and obligatory OT-goal by Ryder of course ;))

No More Excuses.

No More Dumb coaching. (We have no real offensive plays)

No More dumb penalties.

Just play great hockey guys and beat those lowly (can only score on the power play) LEAFS.

You only got 40 shots on net? I'm ashamed of you, I usually get close to 60!:lol: Mind you, most of my goals seem to come from Zed and Ryder who one-time it into the open net after a brilliant feed from the right side of the ice.:king: Go Habs Go!:hlogo:

Seems like a realistic prediction. We will once again outshoot/outplay them, but this time the score will hopefully be on our side! Beat Belfour - that's all that's to it! :ghg:

Yeah He has played well it sucks that he cant get the ice he deserves because of the solid parings of Dandy and the Cube and Rivet and Markov. But when souray is healthy and if he steps his game up we can have 6 solid dee men.
