Game 10 : Habs @ Isles
Here we go! Montreal looks to add to their winning ways, and continue the streak! This being the 2nd game of a home and home series with the New York Islanders. Last game we were spoiled with some fast paced high scoring action and I think we are in store for more tonight.
James Wisniewski had a great game Wednesday night, as did Tomas Plekanec. Expect to see both those guys have multiple point nights. With Streit injured, JW quarterbacking their powerplay is working like a charm. Once again, if the Habs stay disciplined, this game is theres. We dominated 5 on 5 last game.
Alex Auld will be in nets for the Habs tonight. His first start of the season. He played decently in the pre-season and I'm excited to see how it pans out tonight. I expect to see Dwayne Roloson in nets for the Isles. Despite letting in 4 goals last game, he made some key stops to keep the Isles in the game.
Andrei Markov is not suiting up tonight, but all sources point him debuting in Montreal Saturday night against the Florida Panthers. This is something to be very excited about. PK Subban and Markov on the point during power plays can only mean good things. Cammalleri should also benefit from Markov's return. I expect to see plenty of Markov feeds to Cammalleri on the PP.
John Tavares looks to improve his scoring streak. He's got 6 goals in 6 games, and adds a key element to the already dangerous Islander power play.
Going to be a close one tonight in New York. A hard game to call. To be honest, Montreal's win last game came at a bit of a surprise, so instead of going with me head tonight, I'll be using me heart. 5-2 Habs. Fingers crossed!
