Habs Here Tonight

Not much to report from Verizon Center today. The Capitals’ lineup will remain the same as it was for Monday’s shootout loss in Detroit, unless Bruce Boudreau opts to tweak his forward lines a bit. The sweatered personnel will remain the same.

Montreal starts a six-game road trip here tonight, because the Cirque de Soleil is currently occupying the Bell Centre. The Canadiens will play three on the road in four nights, then head home for the holidays before going right back out on the road on Dec. 26. Among the post-holiday road games is a late December date with the Panthers in Florida. The Cats usually schedule the Habs around that time of year because it’s an easy sellout for them with so many snowbirds from Quebec in the Miami area at that time of year.

Cristobal Huet will be in goal for the visitors here tonight, ending a stretch of seven straight starts for 20-year-old rookie netminder Carey Price.

    Good news and bad news in goal for the Habs. As an oppoenent, right now, I’d rather face Huet, but I was hoping to see Price in person… this kid is has got a great future in the NHL….

    I don’t know what to say about the Montreal game last night. I suppose the Caps must have suffered an emotional let down after the all out effort in Detroit. Things just didn’t go right…

    I got to believe that Gabby will have em back on track for the final game before the break. Really need a win against the Islanders… got to regain momentum.
