Waiting in line details - 7:30 PM start at the Phone Booth. Are we ever going on the road again? It's Méchant Mardi on RDS! I still don't know what that means. Are Tuesdays now evil or something? Habs coming off their first regulation loss of the season. Canes sitting atop the Soutleast division at 4-3-1, and a solid 2-1-1 on their current road trip. Last year, Canes had a 2-1-1 advantage over the Habs. Since the lockout, Canes are 9-0 in the Bell Centre. Ye gads.
Pay your cover charge to - old FHF friend Wufpirate is rocking over at Carolina on Ice. He's really upped the Photoshop ante this year. Putting a Staal face on Princess Leia can't be easy.
Hot sexy Habs to watch - Tender Guay Saks of course. Captain K with 10 points in his last 6 games, and Tangy with 8 points over that span. Markov behind only Ottawa surprise Filip Kuba amongst league D in scoring, with at least one assist in every game we've played.
Skanky Habs to watch - well the Danse à Dix line got off a million shots on Saturday but could barely bury one. Little Tits has zero points in four games.
Hot sexy Canes to watch - Eric Staal a point per game over the last 6. Cam Ward has never lost (7-0) at the Bell Centre, with a sick .952 save %.
Skanky Canes to watch - Sergei Samsonov pointless so far this season. Really? You don't say?
Line-up mania! - Well the Gazette reports that Big Tits is playing, but I also read he has yet to be cleared by the doctors. You guys can keep us filled in throughout the day. Other than that, everyone is available, so be sure to see Breezer in the lineup as the Habs coaching staff continue their glorious love affair with him (UPDATE: Breezer is OUT. W00t! Suck it, trunk-boy). TFS will start. Canes are dropping like flies, too many injuries to list.
Post-game entertainment - This week's early-week avoid depressing strip clubs to watch TV pick is Fringe, JJ Abrams' new series on Fox. Maybe a little too X-Files derivative, but damn it's entertaining at least. Last week's Scanners-esque exploding heads were awesome. Of course, the episode may be pre-empted by the resumption of Game 5 of the World Series. In that case, read a boring book; it'll be more exciting than baseball.
