Game 43: Habs @ Bruins RIVALRY NIGHT IN BOSTON

Jan 13, 2009 7:00 PM ET
TV: Versus
Radio: WBZ 1030AM
Vs. Habs (25-10-6)
  • Lucic might be back in the lineup.  Game-time-decision, etc.  If not, we're looking at Kobasew-Savard-St. Pierre.
  • Hnidy has been cleared for play, and will probably play with a visor.  Lashoff got sent down.
  • This is the 6th of 6 home games in a row, part of 10 games at home in January.
  • Kessel is out with mono. Should've been less careful in high school and college, there, Phil. They think it's likely he'll be out a month, which is about 13 games, according to fluto and friends.
  • The Bruins are missing 6 of their top players right now: Manny, Patrice, Sturm, Ference, and Kessel. At least the Habs are pretty beat up, too.
  • The Bruins should make sure Komisarek continues to have bad memories of the Garden.
  • Halak and Thomas in net today, Rask and Denis as backups.
  • Fear not, Versus is bringing the NESN announcers on to call tonight's game.  I guess Montreal doesn't have any announcers on VS.
  • This is a really cool picture.
"Thort's Vlog":

Previous Games:
2-0-1 vs. Habs
  • Game 21: Bruins 2 Habs 2 SO WIN: Patrick Roy night in Montreal, and Thomas puts on quite the show.
  • Game 16: Bruins 6 Habs 1 WIN: The only game in Boston so far this season. Lucic beat up Komisarek. The bruins mopped the floor with the Habs. Chants of Caaaarrreeeeeey echoed through the garden. What a game.
  • Game 3: Bruins 3 Habs 3 SO Loss: All of Montreal's scoring is in 3:19 near the end of the first period in their home opener.
  • The playoffs last year, and so many years prior. I want Lucic and Hnidy (and O'reilly and...) back in the lineup out of spite.
Other Previews:
Habs in town, everybody's talking:

My dislike for the habs has been tempered by reading Jack Falla. That said, I'd appreciate if they took a nice long slumber like some other original six teams have.

(lets try this again without spelling mistakes) Jack Falla can turn any frown upside down in my books...
