Waiting in line details - 7:30 PM start, Bell Centre, Montréal, QC. On TV: RDS and RDS-HD in French, TSN and TSN-HD in English. Montreal English radio CJAD, Montreal French radio CKAC, Panthers radio 790 the Ticket. Last season, Panthers owned the season series 3-1. In the 4 games, Habs scored 3 goals total. And the Panthers supposedly suck. Uh-oh.
Pay your cover charge to - Panthers Daily Puck. Number of Habs fan blogs? About a jillion. Number of Panthers fan blogs? One. Man that expansion was a great idea.
Hot sexy Habs to watch - Huet made the Canes game resepctable. He's about the only thing that's hot.
Hot sexy Panthers to watch - Olli Jokinen has two goals and two assists in the last two games, both Panthers wins, and tied Scott Mellanby for the all-time Panthers scoring lead (ah, such history). Panthers PP had 5 goals in those two games.
Skanky Habs to watch - name your poison. PK is floundering. No offence in the last game has led to a new second line, Gui? apparently being benched, and the coming of the apocalypse.
Skanky Panthers to watch - Tomas Vokoun is not the saviour he should have been, with a GAA above 3 and a save % below .900. Jay Bouwmeester has zero points and is -4 so far this year.
Post-game adult entertainment establishment - a favourite among the FHF is Club Downtown. Conveniently located a block or two from the Bell Centre, it has the best combination of good looking dancers and er, "fun" in the Downtown core. Ask for the two Romanian women special. Can get very crowded on the weekends, but otherwise pretty flawless. And show your Habs ticket stub and get a free beer!
