Halak to start versus Wings?
According to tsn.ca, rds.ca, and hockeybuzz, The Montreal Canadiens have recalled goaltender Jaroslav Halak Of the Hamilton Bulldogs (AHL).The reason for this is that Carey Price is day-to-day with the flu, and Cristobal Huet is nursing a groin injury, one in which he may have hurt in Saturday’s 5-4 shootout loss to the Predators.
If neither goaltender recovers in time, Halak might get the call to play tomorrow against the Red Wings. This will be a tough challenge for the habs, who have dropped four of their last five, and are trying to find a spark that will make them play a 60-minute game.
Their are two sides to this Halak debate, there is the side that fans will want him to start because he could give the habs THAT SPARK, not to mention that he had a 7-0-0 record at home last season. There is also the side where fans would boo the decision due to the fact that this would be Halak’s first game since last year and that he is starting against arguably, one of the best teams in the league.
Either way, the habs have to get going if they want to make the playoffs and scare other teams over time. I believe that they can accomplish this if they put in a 60-minute effort and that every player plays well.
Please share your comments on this situation and tell me what else the habs should do or who they should trade in order to make them a contender.
Go Habs Go!!!
