After trying to vote their entire team into the NHL All-Star Game, Montreal Canadiens fans now find themselves in a comfortable fourth seed playoff position.
In their most recent action, Montreal took on Boston Sunday night and did what most team's playing against the Bruins do - they lost. The 3-1 deficit shouldn't reflect poorly on goaltender Carey Price. As we all know by now, Price's first career win came at the expense of the Penguins on Mellon Arena ice. To say he plays well against the Pens is an understatement.
Robert Lang, team's second highest scorer, is out indefinitely after severing his Achielle's tendon on a skate blade Sunday night. I didn't see it, but the sheer thought of it makes me cringe.
Needless to say this is a big game for the Penguins. It'll be interesting to see who Michel Therrien puts on the top line with Sidney Crosby now that Tyler Kennedy will sit out tonight's game as part of suspension for his fight against Toronto's Luke Schenn.
