Gametime: Habs at Avalanche, 12/19/2010

Habs are hoping to start this road trip –and x-mas window of historically slumparrific hockey–with their strengths on display: speed, crisp breakout passing, solid penalty-killing, and of course an impenetrable wall of Price.  Carey has only faced the Avs once before, and would register a first win against them.

Yannick Weber and Tom Pyatt are healthy scratches.  Pacioretty will try to keep impressing his coach with his offensive instinct and steady presence on the attack.

The Avs will be showcasing young Matt Duschene, who has 34 points, 7 in the last 3 games.

Between the pipes, Craig Anderson has been winning games, but has allowed at least 5 goals in 3 of his last 4 home games.  Should we look forward to a festive red light extravaganza?
