Things to Look for Tonight
- The Canadiens will be retiring Patrick Roy's #33 in a pre-game ceremony. If you are really interested, the Canadiens will be webcasting the ceremony live on their website starting at 6:00.
- According to Kevin Paul Dupont, Big George Laraque is looking for a dance partner. Will it be Thornton or Lucic who foxtrots with the big man?
- The Habs were once known for their strong special teams play. Now, they are pretty average. They are ranked 22nd in the league on the power play (15.7%) and tied with the B's for 12th in penalty killing (82.1%).
- Will the Habs come out with a little extra effort because it is a special night in Montreal or will the ceremony be a distraction?
