Game day, with the Habs in Buffalo to meet a team on the outside looking in as far as a playoff spot goes. It’s also a team that has beaten Montreal the last three times they’ve met, so that nonsense has to come to a screeching halt.
It’s going to be interesting for sure. Can Budaj make it seven straight starts in the win column? Will Montreal rebound from their loss to the Washington Capitals on Tuesday? Will Alex Galchenyuk, now on a four-game point streak, add another? Will David Desharnais enjoy a huge night and get critics off his back? Will the team slip in and out of downtown Buffalo without getting mugged?
Will P.K. have a sensational night and continue to impress professional writers everywhere that he’s deserving of the Norris?
Will the boys look good and bring huge momentum to their Saturday meeting in Toronto, or will they surprise the heck out of us and come out flat and cause us to curse and throw bricks at the T.V. screen?
Game time is 7:30 (I think), and on CBC if you’re interested in hearing whomever it is they have on board to tell it like it is. PJ Stock maybe? If he’s there, the brick might happen before the first puck is dropped.
