Well, so far we’ve got the Habs number this season, although we’ve only played them once… It was way back on October 10th, when the Oil were healthy and the fans were excited. A 3-2 win for the home team. My oh my how the times have changed. We’re heading into Montreal to play against a team that appears to be coming together at the right time for a playoff push. Winners of 4 of their last 5, they’re probably looking forward to this match up more than we are. This is Montreal’s last game against a Western opponent, so their playoff chances look good. In the pipes Deslauriers has looked a lot more comfortable lately, but some of my dodgy sources are reporting Dubnyk will get the start tonight. For the Oil, Minard has been called up and will likely see some action as Moreau is questionable, and O’Sullivan is hanging out at home.
Edmonton Oilers Projected Line-Up (subject to change)
Penner — Horcoff — Pisani
O’Sullivan — Cogliano — Brule
Nilsson — Gagner — Pouliot
Comrie — Potulny — Stortini
Whitney — Gilbert
Johnson — Peckham
Chorney — Strudwick
Montreal Canadiens Projected Line-Up (subject to change)
Pyatt – Plekanec – Kostitsyn
Pouliot – Gomez – Gionta
Moen – Moore- the other Kostitsyn
Darche – Metropolit – Maxwell
Markov – O’Byrne
Hamrlik – Spacek
Gill – Gorges
- Moreau made the road trip with the team.
- Patrick O’Sullivan did not make the road trip.
- Chris Minard has been recalled by the team.
- Could get confusing tonight with two Kostitsyns and two Pouliots. Look to hear frustration from the announcing team.
- Early start tonight, so don’t work too late.
