I wish Joe would hurry up and quit his day job or clone himself, because I'm not all that great at making these preview threads. Tonight's game feature's two reeling teams. I think you all know about the Avs, but the Habs haven't been doing much better, losing 4 in a row and 13 of the last 19. Of course, they had a bit more of a cushion than we did, so they are still firmly entrenched in the playoff picture. Statistically, there's a lot of similarities between the clubs and, on paper, it would appear this is a relatively even matchup.
Altitude is doing some wacky stuff during the game tonight in honor of Montreal's 100th season. Of course, showing the 2nd period in black and white is no more accurate than HD color, as there weren't ANY TVs around 100 years ago. All kidding aside, I think this might be fun to watch, although I'm not sure which feed I'll be getting tonight with the trusty old Center Ice package.
Alex Tanguay is on the IR, meaning Patrice Brisebois will likely be tonight's hero. I figure he's good for 6 or 7 goals - most of them for Montreal. Oh, and for those who are fans of scantily clad women in hockey clothing (and who isn't?), you might want to check out SB Nation's Hab's blog. I have no idea what's going on there, but it's certainly easy on the eyes...
