Home sweet home. Let's hope it fucking counts for something, as this is the first of 6 straight at home for the Habs.. All the comforts of home are just up Stanley Street. Let's get to it.
Waiting in line details -19h30 start at Chez Bell. Actual puck drop will probably be much later. I would write that the Habs have lost 3 straight but the Western road trip never happened. Avs are actually leading the Western Conference with a 4-1-1 record. Believe it.
Pay your cover charge to - Disgruntled Avalanche Blogger is undoubtedly less disgruntled considering the Avs' start.
Hot sexy Habs to watch - I'm happy to say that Pleks has started off the season seemingly on a mission to prove his critics wrong. If only he had some wingers. Gionta leads the team with 3 goals. MOEmaN's good play is earning him a spot on the top line with Gionta and Gomez.
Skanky Habs to watch - Everyone else?
Hot sexy Avs to watch - Career backup Craig Anderson has started the season on fire for the Avs, playing every game and having a sub-2 GAA. Some Polack named Wojtek Wolski leads the Avs with 7 points. Darcy Tucker and David "Bowie" Jones were the stars of the Avs win over the Leafs. Hejduk and Stastny always worth watching.
Skanky Avs to watch - not too many considering their record. Adam Foote is pointless.
Line up du jour - welcome to the next stopgap D plan, Shawn Belle. He's supposed to be a defensive D, and will be paired with Mara. Metro still out injured, so according to RDS' Twitter feed, the 4th line is Dagger-CHips-BGL. TFS set to start.
In the VIP Room - I said four days ago that the Habs get a week before the expletives fly in this space and I'm sticking to it. Over / under on the Bell Centre crowd letting the expletives fly is 6 minutes into the second period. On another note, does anyone even think of the Avs as the Nords anymore? I usually forget.
Post-game adult entertainment establishment - The granddaddy of them all and in the spirit of our graphic today, Chez Parée. Rumour has it you can get contact dances there now. Can anyone confirm this? I may have to reconsider my personal boycott.
Real life got in the way of HF4's promised piece from TMS this morning. Sorry about that. Direct your dirty thoughts in the comments at him.
