Can't. . .do. . .it. . .
I understand, Aaron. I can never bring myself to root for the Bruins, either, no matter the circumstance. I've been a Leafs fan the past few days (which is tough for a Habs fan) -- damn them for not being able to hold a lead.
This is a tough two day stretch for the Habs, playing on the road back to back against the Pens and Bruins. Montreal is still playing shorthanded, too, as Rene Bourque had a setback in his concussion recovery, Prust is not making the road trip, and Diaz is still quite a ways away from coming back from a concussion.
Brendan Morrow is supposed to be making his Pittsburgh debut tonight, and Halpern makes his first appearance for the Canadiens since being picked up on waivers. It's Halpern's second time around with Montreal. I'm not sure how much Morrow has left in the tank -- he's really slowed down due to injuries the past few years. Pittsburgh gave up a prime defensive prospect for this rental player.
