    Habs should win this game as they're clearly the better team. But they shouldn't be over-confident. Tavares is playing like one of the best player in the NHL right now. He can win a game on his own.

    Good question. He has 10 points and he's +9, so either he had 1 point on the PP (not sure I remember that either) or there was an ES goal against.

    Either way, he's a rookie with an average of 12 min of ice time per night and he's leading the team in +/-. Sure he's sheltered (as he should be), but that's still pretty damn impressive.

    Well, Prust bailed out that line from getting hemmed in a couple times. ;)

    But still, for a guy who really wasn't a + guy in minors, it is impressive.

    The Islanders have some very good players. I also like their defense. They have a lot of ups and downs, so it's hard to gauge them. One game they win 5-1, the next they lose 7-0.

    Let's hope we get the latter team!

    The Isles are not terrible. The Habs are not perfect. Your schedule is irrelevant.

    I hope Subban throws a big clean hit on his friend JT. Also, add to that a Chuckie hat trick

    Islanders GDT is pretty good. These guys have embraced their frustration with some pretty sharp humour. Good for them!

    Yeah, this game has psychological letdown written all over it...

    IMO Habs win this one 3-1 with JT ruining Price's shutout with about 4-5 minutes to go.

    I have a bad feeling about this game.

    We're bipolar against the Isles. Either we suck donkey scrotum or we're great, and sometimes this happens all in the same game.

    I see this as a trap game.

    Habs will expect nothing from the Isles and the habs will play bad.
    The isles will go in without any pressure and they will play above their heads.

    I hope I'm wrong.

    Habs will win or lose. There will be no tie. You can quote me in the PGT.

    The NHL got rid of ties during the 2004-2005 lockout and replaced them with overtime + shootout so your prediction is not much of a prediction since the probability of no ties is 100%.
