Gameday: Philadelphia Flyers

Philadelphia Flyers (7-3-0) at Montreal Canadiens (6-2-3) 7:30pm

The Habs host Daniel Briere, Mike Richards and the Philadelphia Flyers tonight. The Flyers are in the midst of an eight game road trip. Briere will probably get booed. He has 13 points so far this year. Mike Richards has six goals and is emerging as the superstar he was projected to be coming out of junior.

Hopefully the Flyers can avoid any dirty hits causing serious injury. The Broad Street Bullies have to stay out of the box if they want to steer clear of the league's top power play unit.

Martin Biron starts for the Flyers tonight and the Canadiens will counter with Cristobal Huet. Biron has been outstanding so far this year with a record of 7-2-0 with a 1.78 goals-against average.

The Habs are looking to bounce back after dropping their last game to the Thrashers in their worst performance of the season.

Last year saw the Habs win three out of four games against Philly, with David Aebischer picking up all three victories.


How good are the Detroit Red Wings? Henrik Zetterberg is starting to look like the best player in the NHL. He's picked up at least a point in every game so far this year. It's nice to see my second-favourite team kicking all kinds of ass in the Western Conference.

Do you really think Briere will be booed tonight? Any chance he gets some extra lovin' on account of the wretched language flap?
