Morning Habs fans!
One last game before the All-Star break for nos Canadiens.
In fact, tonight's game against the Red Wings is the only contest in the league. The Habs will not hit the ice until next Tuesday, January 31st to face off against the equally lowly Buffalo Sabres.
With Travis Moen and Petteri Nokelainen likely out for tonight's game, Andreas Engqvist was recalled by the Habs.
While he was not especially memorable in his first tour of duty with the Canadiens, it is worth noting that the Swedish centre has been lighting up the AHL since being sent down. In 27 games with the Bulldogs, Engqvist has collected 23 points.
