Game Preview by Sam Gerber
Last game: MTL 4  WSH 6  

Price stood his ground but his team did not. The Canadiens took too many penalties leading to the Capitals taking and holding the momentum. 

For a complete recap: Too Many Weapons

Players to watch

  • Tyler Bertuzzi
    Bertuzzi plays tough and mean like his uncle, but also has the talent to put the puck in the net. The 23-year-old plays on the first line with Henrik Zetterberg, which gives Bertuzzi plenty of chances.
  • Brendan Gallagher
    Gallagher is having a career year even with the Canadiens being near the bottom of the standings for most of the season.
  • Dylan Larkin
    Larkin plays hard and with speed. He is a promising player for the Wings who will be a hard match-up for Habs centres.

Keys to Victory

  • Have penalty-kill success
    The Canadiens are going up against another bottom tier power-play. It will be beneficial to take advantage of this matchup.
  • Empty the tank
    With only two games this week, the Habs need to leave it all out on the ice..
  • Push the pace
    Playing with energy and emotion is something the Canadiens need to do every game until the end of the season.

 What to Expect by Sam Gerber
Prediction: Canadiens 3  Red Wings 2 

This game features two teams battling for nothing but a better draft spot. With both teams playing their youth, it will be interesting to see the standouts.
