UPDATE: 46-14-27 reunited for Flyers game

by Dave Stubbs

Tomas Plekanec is back between Andrei Kostitsyn and Alex Kovalev at practice this morning.

Other lines on the ice:

Lang between Tanguay and D'Agostini
Maxwell between Latendresse and Sergei Kostitsyn
Lapierre with Laraque, Bégin and Kostopoulos. Not sure who's the rover on this line.

Komisarek awaiting doctor's clearance to play tomorrow vs. Flyers. He wanted to see the MD today, but he – the doctor, not Komo – was sick. He says he's ready to go. Sergei Kostitsyn chose to test that theory today, crosschecking Komisarek three or four times during a particularly physical drill. Komo chuckled about it afterward, saying it's part of the practice routine. Others weren't so sure; it would have been penalized in a game almost without question. One thing's sure: Komisarek can't wait to get back into action.

Halak gets the start in goal. Carbo wouldn't commit to his goaltenders for the weekend.

Canadiens vs. Flyers All time Record

The Philadelphia Flyers arrived with the NHL’s first wave of expansion in 1967-68. Unlike most new franchises, the Flyers enjoyed success in their debut season, posting a 31-32-11 record en route to claiming the West Division title.

The first matchup between the Canadiens and Flyers took place on November 4, 1967 at the Forum. The Habs lost the game 4-1.

Montreal and Philadelphia, who won the Stanley Cup in 1974 and 1975 when the “Broad Street Bullies” were ruling the league, have met five times in the playoffs. The Canadiens came out on top on three occasions, including the Stanley Cup Finals in 1976.

5-3 Flyers with their power play continuing to fire on all cylinders.
Montreal loses the games that they should win but don't seem to have any problems getting up for the good teams. Philly should be favorite being on a roll and the Habs with injury problems, but I'll pick the upset on this one. Montreal wins 4-2.
Flyers will win, they are on fire lately. Maybe a Cote vs. Laraque fight tonight...

thanks for the two points.
