Go HABS Go!

 

Time to clip some chicken wings.  Those high flying Buffalo's can be trouble.  Lets hope they are not weilding their sabres this afternoon.

No Regehr or Kaleta... maybe we can go with a physical aproach against them and knock them off their momentum.

Not sure if this will be a high scoring game, or a close one.

Subban will play and the Habs are dressing 7 d-men for this one, maybe White gets benched after all?  I don't mind this, Subban can ease into things a bit (and Bouillon can leave the powerplay, use Kaberle-Subban as the 2nd PP pairing).

Hopefully Therrien is smarter than our past coaches and just rotates an extra forward to the fourth line and then rotates two defencemen in and out.

This is very good because I loathe Frank on the PP.
I'd rather try a forward back there.
But dressing 7 d solves this problem.

What forward would we put back there?  We tried Pleks last year and in theory it should of worked great.  In reality it sucked.

Weber's not in the warmup so we know he's not playing.  Will the other be White or Eller?

This game will be tough to win. Hopefully Buffalo is coming off an emotional high against Boston.

Ah white is out.... Good call, IMO.

Say what you want about high fives, etc, but Gorges was pretty clear about the team embracing accountability and a team concept. The key to these kinds of messages is not over doing it. One game out for white, then let him back to atone. The other key...no favorites.

GEEZE, I honestly thought the CBC might give Bob Cole his walking papers. The guys is in his mid 70s and invents the game as it goes along. There must be better broadcasters available (or is it just an olds boys club as a few folks suspect).

I agree, he grates on my ears and his butchering of names and plays is embarrassing.
