Game Notes

  • Win or your out...enough said!
  • Lindy Ruff made no qualms about his starter...he said "Ryan is gonna play...it's a big game".
  • The Canadiens have won their last two games after struggling terribly over the last couple of weeks.
  • I won't be in the game thread tonight...should be the last game I miss all season. Hopefully the rest will mean something.
