Much like last week, the Canadiens have an unusual schedule that will see them play on Friday and Sunday.
Feels a bit odd to break the routine and not see them drop the puck on a Thursday.
Then again, I am convinced that after their performance against the Stars, not too many will be overly sad about that.
Elsewhere, in a piece of good news for Montreal, Tuomo Ruutu re-signed with the Carolina Hurricanes for four years.
Why is this good news?
Because, with arguably the most coveted rental forward off the market (notice the term 'rental' - Rick Nash and Jeff Carter do not apply here), Andrei Kostitsyn's value increases significantly.
If Pierre Gauthier choose to shop him, of course.
Our Kamal Panesar feels that Montreal should re-sign him.
