Tonight’s The Night, Gonna Be Alright

Mike Cammalleri will be lacing them up tonight in Pittsburgh, and that’s great news. Maybe our offensive thrust will be a little more thrusting.

Is it too much to ask that our guys go a game, or a week or a month, or even several months, without a serious injury to a key guy? Are they lacking vitamins?

But wait. Hold the fort. The Pens haven’t exactly been lucky either. They’re missing Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Tyler Kennedy, Brooks Orpik, and their two leading scorers up until now, James Neal and Kris Letang. I’d say that’s pretty well the meat of their lineup.

So it’s two teams going at it tonight will injury woes. In the big picture, may our doctors be better than their doctors.

We need this game, of course. With Ottawa and Winnipeg playing against each other, and who happen to be the only two teams with less points in the east than our guys, the Habs are now poised to slip within a whisker of being the worst in the the Conference if they don’t get their shit together. How depressing is that?

Matt Cooke should be in their lineup, so keep your head up. Or as they say, on a swivel.

My game report will again be in the wee hours, once I return from whence I came.

Go Habs

  1. I have a good feeling about tonight. I think we’ll do it and I really hope the Pacioretty-DD-Andre line stays together (they are great on the same line).

    Eller has looked great as well. I wish they’d sit Gomez for once. Just once to teach him a lesson. Sigh.

    Looking forward to the report Dennis and let’s hope it’s a positive one!

  2. Those three have been working well together, Darcth, so let’s hope Martin doens’t screw around with at least one line. I thinkl Eller’s getting better by the game and will really help in a big way down the stretch. Gomez……well…….Nyez Nile (Russian for “I don’t know.”)

  3. Believe it or not:

    It has taken Toronto’s Phil Kessel only five games to score as many goals (7) as Scott Gomez did during the entire 2010-11 season.

  4. This is just really pathetic. I knew October would be a rough month for us but for crying out loud this is bad. No motivation, no heart, and 3 points out of a possible 12? Horrible.
