It's Tuesday Night Hockey, and you can see it on TSN at 7 PM ET. The Sens wrap up their 2 game road streak and have been pretty good on both sides of the rink these last games. The Habs are in the midsts of a 2-game losing streak.
Alex Auld gets the start tonight as predicted and the lines will stay the same. Anton Volchenkov has been red hot the last games and expect Hartsburg to look at his defensive leaders(Volchie, Phillips) to give some poise to this team. Montreal has been carried away with their glamorous offense, and it resulted into a 6-3 loss to the Leafs. Carey Price will start for the Habs. He has arguably been the team's best player all season long.
Look for a hit affair with lots and lots of emotions in the air. If Ottawa can contain the coverage on the Habs O, and expose their true defensive woes, The Sens can walk away with the win tonight.
My prediction is that the Sens steamroll over the Habs 5-1(Vermette, Ruutu, Alfredsson, Kuba, Foligno for the Sens; Plekanec for the Habs).
Kuba - Campoli Phillips - Volchenkov Smith/Picard - Lee
The Latest Buzz on the Sens
Dany Heatley- It's down to the Edmonton Oilers, Minnesota Wild, and San Jose Sharks. Expect the Wild to take their offer up a notch
Chris Kelly- The Detroit Red Wings want him but Bryan Murray wants to see the market for Kelly first, than decide on his future. The Florida Panthers have also expressed interest for him. If Heatley stays, Kelly is gone
Alexandre Picard- The Washington Capitals have inquired about Picard, who would look good next to Mike Green.
Jason Smith- The Oilers will take him IF he's packaged with Heatley. He can prove to be a great warrior and leader in the locker room.
