Game: Montreal vs New Jersey

Tomorrow is a very important game since Montreal hasn't been playing very well lately! We're also getting close to the playoffs and sitting in 6th spot makes me uneasy with so many injuries and having only a 2 point lead on the 7th and 8th place teams. As it sits right now we would be playing Boston in the first round which would make for an awesome series. Lets hope we can pull in a win tomorrow and get that much closer to securing a playoff spot. Wish I was there:

Game: Montreal vs Atlanta

It would be surprising for Atlanta to pull off a miracle rally to the postseason, but any hopes of doing the impossible would have to start right away. Doing so against a team that can't bury the biscuit could help, but the Canadiens, badly in need of a win and a confidence boost ahead of the postseason, should be just as desperate when two face off. --

We need a win bad and if we cant even seem to beat weaker teams like Atlanta I don't know what hope we can have! Here's a Subban fight to tide you over.

Game: Montreal vs Boston

 The last two games between these teams have been highly contentious. There was bad blood long before Chara's hit on Pacioretty, as Boston and Montreal combined for 14 goals and 187 penalty minutes in the meeting before that, Feb. 9 at TD Garden. It's the only game in the season series won by the Bruins, 8-6, and featured a fight between Price and his counterpart, Tim Thomas. Hope the Habs can shut them down again and pull even closer to leading the division. --

Here's a classic intro.

Game: Montreal vs Minnesota

All of the injuries have forced Montreal to recall several players from Hamilton of the AHL to fill in lineup spots. The most recent additions are rookie Aaron Palushaj and veteran Nigel Dawes to replace Plekanec and Halpern.

Palushaj was a second-round pick in the 2007 Entry Draft by St. Louis and was traded to Montreal for Matt D'Agostini last season at the trade deadline. He is still looking for his first NHL point after two games. Dawes has now played for five NHL teams in the past three seasons after beginning this year with Atlanta before being traded to Montreal with Sopel on Feb. 24. --

Heres a classic clip!:

Game: Montreal vs New York Rangers

Montreal lost the game and had to pull Carry Price in the first after letting in 5 goals in 12 shots. We play the Wild on Sunday so all they can do now is prepare for that game and hope to take home some points. Too bad the game couldn't have gone something like this!

Game: Montreal vs Washington

Washington is really hot right now so this is going to be a hard game for the Habs. Ovy is always on his game so we're going to have to keep him covered is we want to take this one. Here's highlights from game #7 of last year when Montreal pushed the Caps out of the playoffs.

Game: Montreal vs Pittsburgh

Montreal plays Pittsburgh on Saturday which should be a very good game seeing as how Crosby and Malkin are both out for the Pens. Unfortunately Pacioretty is still out and I'm guessing still will be for a while but he was released from the hospital so things are looking up for him. Heres a cool video someone made for game 6 of last years playoffs between the two teams.

Final: Montreal finished the game 3 goals ahead of Pittsburgh; Price got his 12th career shutout.
