Game preview: Habs vs Flamers
It's a wonder that franchise didn't survive there.
Cammalleri and (Sissy) Spacek are out. Palushaj and Yemelin probably get the nod. This year's pregame ceremonies have a lot to live up to. Last year, The Maple Leafs raised the bar by reminding us all that Ice is made of frozen water. Also, Carey Price will try to become the 7th youngest goalie to reach 100 wins after Harry Lumley, Tom Barrasso, Terry Sawchuk, Grant Fuhr, Patrick Roy et Jocelyn Thibault. But more importantly, with a win, Jacques Martin will become the 34th oldest coach to win a home opener on a Thursday night in a non leap year. Go Jacques!
Prediction: Habs win 4-2 in a shootout. You'll see.
