Game #25 - vs Montreal Canadiens

Game 25
Canadiens (12-11-1, 25 pts) at Penguins (16-8-0, 32 pts)

Mellon Arena - Pittsburgh

Why does it matter?
It's the Canadiens. Their fans are annoying (though enthusiastic - you have to give them that). Do you need a better reason?

What has been happening lately?
  • Pens - They've won four out of five very quietly. The power play has goals in four straight. Maybe a nice run coming on?
  • Canadiens - The Habs have won three of their past four and Carey Price is playing much better than earlier in the year.
Questions to be answered
  • Is the power play getting better? With goals in four straight, you might think so, but I'm not so sure.
  • Can Carey Price stay hot?
  • Can the Habs keep winning despite badly out shot as they have been recently?
Keys to the game
  • Score early and put pressure on Price.
  • Pick on Mara when he's on the ice. Paul is a -8 on the season.
