Gamethread #44: Canucks vs Montreal.

Quick turnaround game on this road trip.

NHL: Montreal Canadiens at Vancouver Canucks Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports

It was a busy day in Ottawa with a trade, an O/T win and a Petey hattrick. I hope Marky got a massage and a good night’s sleep as this team awaits a proper backup goalie to show up. At the start of the year people wouldn’t have cared too much who backups as it was assumed the Canucks would be at the bottom of league. Now that there is the smell of playoffs in the air in January, having someone to actually backup Marky seems to be important.

Montreal is almost in the same spot as the Canucks. They are in the last wildcard spot in the east and struggle to find consistency. Their special teams are not that special. Having said that, the Habs are 8-1-1 in their last 10 games against the Canucks. The last time the Canucks won in Montreal was 2011. Let’s hope Petey has something left in the tank.

Early games rock!.....except for comments on gamethreads.
