I'm actually intrigued by this game. The Habs are in an interesting spot -- and while I think they'll do fine as far as making a middle-seed playoff spot under Gainey, it's certainly a tenuous time for them. Meanwhile, the Islanders' recent form is not that of a pushover. If former Hab property Yann Danis plays lights-out and/or Carey Price or the team in front of him lays an egg, the narrative in Montreal will write itself.
