Some lineup news for Tampa:

 

- Anders Lindback gets the start in goal.

- Ryan Malone was placed on IR yesterday (much to the chagrin of my pool team), Richard Panik was recalled to take his place.

 

Also, the lines from practice for the Habs yesterday (Pacioretty with Galchenyuk/Gallagher, Prust with Desharnais/Cole) appear to the ones they'll start with tonight (with the Galchenyuk line being line 2).

Malone tends to burn the Habs so that's good.

 

Excited to see how Conacher looks.

I am excited to see if Chucky and Gally can give Patch some confidence.

At some point, we need to try eller, cole, prust.

I am still not that impressed with Eller, but he has been trying harder the DD, so give him a chance and see what he can do.

I don't think I missed anything on the GDT (except the team the habs were playing, thanks for fixing that Brian), if so lemme know I'll fix it.

Prust and Bourque playing on first line left wing together.  Imagine the too many men calls ;)

That'd be interesting for sure.  I've fixed that.

Wish I could see the game tonight, i'm off to Sunrise to see that Panthers play the Capitals.  Not much of a spectacle, but my season tickets are 7 bucks a seat.  We think our team is bad...  Can't wait until Valentine's Day, the Habs should crush these guys and my girlfriend has parent teacher conferences, so v-day is off.  Win-win.

Big game. Habs MUST come out with a compelling, convincing effort, win or lose. If they lay another egg, I really fear we are in for another dismal season, despite the team looking surprisingly decent on paper.

 

This is Therrien's first true test.

Here's a not-so-nice stat to ponder:

 

Tampa Bay PP% at home: 44.4% (1st in NHL).

Minor penalties per game for Montreal: 6.09/game (most in NHL).

 

If I were writing the keys for the game tonight, discipline would be first and foremost.

Given Chucky's good 2 way style & having MaxPac on the same line is exciting.  Both Max & Chucky aren't afraid of going to the crease.  Factor in Gallagher's gangbuster style, I'm looking forward to some good chemistry.

 

GO HABS GO

Well their best chance for a goal so far is on a PK 2-1. Nice work, and it drew a penalty.

Lindback has looked shaky but the bounces just won't happen.

 

I reeeeeally hope it isn't one of those nights.
