The Stars at night/Are big and bright

Deep in the heart of Texas!

Habs face the Dallas Stars tonight, and Brother Andrei will be watching from the safety of his suit, pondering recent civil unrest in Minsk. He’s a healthy scratch for tonight, as is Yannick Weber.

Eller will be on the Cammalleri-Plekanec line, and Pacioretty will be with Gomez and Gionta.

The Stars have been very strong at home (9-0-2 in the last 11 home games), and their goalie Kari Lehtonen hasn’t lost in 8 regulation games.

This game will be a good indicator of how the Habs’ season is shaping up, and how Carey Price is handling a steady workload on the road.  Another attempt to come from behind could be very costly, and our small, fast team needs to play on its strengths.  In a post-Markov world, the defence needs to buy into the same system at all times.

Martin is making all kinds of noises about his guys refusing to battle, and lacking in commitment around the net.  After a tough, punishing practise on Monday, he expects his offense to do much better.

More after the game….

    Hope that the Habs are going to put it in! It is now 3-1 and it does not look too good!
