The way Montreal has been playing, the Canucks should take this one. Quite frankly it wouldn't be unreasonable to expect the Canucks to take 4 out of 5 on this trip, with a 5th win being quite possible. I get so nervous on these eastern trips. I hate it when the Canucks lose to any other Canadian team.

"I haven't played well enough and on a team like this you have to earn your minutes," Ballard said today. "I've probably played games when I should have been scratched but I wasn't on a very good team. It's not fun; everyone has a competitive side and wants to be out there. But there are bigger things than how I feel about it. We're on a six-game winning streak right now. The guys who are playing tonight deserve to play.”
Our goaltending is fine, Toucan. Maybe Luongo is overpaid, but goalies are worth less on the market than they were 2 years ago. I'd put our goaltending combo equal to anyone in the league, along with Boston and maybe Los Angeles.
Well I wouldn't be too shocked if Ballard is in next game. Alberts has been pretty brutal tonight. Two awful penalties totaling 6 minutes...
