Slightly Earlier Halifax Game

The Canadiens-Bruins game today (Sunday) from Halifax is an early evening game in the Maritimes, a suppertime event in Quebec and Ontario, and an afternoon game where I am, on the west coast.

Looking for Scott Gomez to repeat his excellent performance from a few nights ago, and Aaron Palushaj from last night. Would also like to see Alexei Yemelin pick it up a notch.

Game time is 3:00 PM Pacific, 6:00 Eastern.

Here’s the lineup from Canadiens.com.
30 BUDAJ, Peter G
65 MAYER, Robert G

11 GOMEZ, Scott C
24 HENRY, Alex D
36 AVTSIN, Alexander RW
40 BEAULIEU, Nathan D
45 BLUNDEN, Michael RW
46 KOSTITSYN, Andrei RW
52 DARCHE, Mathieu LW
56 WILLSIE, Brian RW
60 PALUSHAJ, Aaron RW
63 ENGQVIST, Andreas C
68 WEBER, Yannick D
72 COLE, Erik RW
73 GALLAGHER, Brendan RW
74 YEMELIN, Alexei D
75 GILL, Hal D
78 ARCHAMBAULT, Olivier LW
80 MASSÉ, Dany LW
85 ELLIS, Morgan D

 

One thought on “Slightly Earlier Halifax Game”

  1. Dennis, it looks like the much-anticipated Chara/Pacioretty encounter will not occur during either of the pre-season matchups.

    It’s being reported that Chara will play tonight, but not Monday night in Montreal while Pacioretty will miss tonight, and play on Monday.

    I wonder what will happen when the two of them eventually meet up on the ice for the first time since last season’s incident?

    Will they shake hands?

    Completely ignore each other?

    Exchange a few words?

    Something else?

    We’ll know soon enough. The Habs will be in Boston for regular season action on October 27 The division rivals meet again in Montreal on October 29th.

    Stay tuned…
