    No Brady the magnificient on saturday because he's hurt and out for at least 4 weeks. It's Kotkanemi time to shine!

    I hope Mete is back in the lineup. If they have to keep Alzner in, I believe Ouellet could skip a game. He's not being awful, just not very noticeable.

    Reilly - Petry
    Alzner - Juulsen
    Mete - Benn

    Could work, or swap Alzner and Mete but Alzner and Juulsen were good together last season

    Sens are nothing to underestimate, just like us everyone expected them to be bottom of the barrel. Time will tell but for now they're playing hard too. Should be a good game!

    Sens always, always play us hard (even though Habs Killer #1, Pageau, is out). I'd be really surprised if we win this one for that reason alone.

    Mete probably sits again just because we have the luxury to get him back to 100% by resting a couple of games.

    Bold Prediction: Game ends 4-3 in OT (but for which team, I don't know).

    It's going to hurt to watch Lajoie when we picked Casey Staum instead.

    This will be a chippy, hard-fought game. Tkachuk being out is a blessing, and we need to take advantage on the PP. I have a feeling the sens will look to pound us down.

    I predict a goal from Drouin....and Kotkaniemi

    Huge difference getting rid of locker room cancer like Hoffman.
    Ottawa went from one shot from the Cup finals to a bottoms dweller overnight.
    They are not that bad. They have some good players

    I want a win, I have family that are Sens fans and they are unbearable after a Sens victory, you would swear it was for the Stanley Cup.

    Hope the boys continue to play hard, entertaining hockey.

    Reilly and Juulsen have been rock solid together, you don't wanna mess with that. If Mete can play, just scratch Alzner because I don't think anyone wants to see the eye sore of Alzner and Benn being paired.

    Is there any truth to Sen fans singing an atrocious song during Sens games -- I believe it's called "Waddle Waddle Quack Quack"?

    I heard Marinaro play it last year. Seriously, how could they do this to themselves.

    Wish they'd put Scherbak in. Might as well try him on the PP. It's putrid and he flourishes there. Hudon can sit after taking those 2 stupid penalties last game.

    I expect Shaw may be back Saturday?

    Going to the game! Got last minute tix in the 100 section for 50% off since they are not even close to selling out. This was a couple days ago. Going with the wife who is a leafs fan but will probably wear the blue/blanc/rouge. Go habs go!

    Ottawa going to be a test. They are like us. Play a hard working team game. Going to be interesting to see how Habs react to team like them.

    Hoping for another convincing win! Ottawa has been hot to start like us, but hopefully their luck runs out Saturday!

    Only bad thing will be for those who watch the game on RDS. They will just talk about Chabot all game long and likely add how Montreal should have traded up to get him, then talk about some random French player not even playing in that game scoring is first.

    Chabot is pretty damn good, though.

    Max Lajoie... or Lavoie ? Seems like he's an interesting player to watch, too.

    What happens when two teams that arent overly skilled, but work really hard meet ? Is this a boring game full of hard work, or will the slightest bit of skill on either side shine and make this a 7-6 barn burner ?

    Either way hopefully the leafs lose again

    I like how in the screenshot I'm uploading you can see Chabot skating away from Alzner who has a look on his face like "hey! I didn't know dmen were allowed to do that"

    Like it says on the bumper sticker- "never underestimate the stupidity of people in large groups", so that wouldn't surprise me at all.

    I was at that game (LA/OTT) and LA looked so flat. Sure the sens were pouncing but LA looked like a completely different team than the one that was at the BC. And Campbell was complete trash too
