Halak or Price

Coach Guy Carbonneau confirmed Jaroslav Halak will be in nets tonight against the Atlanta Thrasher and Carey Price on Wednesday against the New Jersey Devils.

It's the second time this season the Habs and Thrashers are going at it. In their first game on Dec. 2, the Habs had a 5-4 victory at the Bell Centre.

Georges Laraque

Montreal tough guy Georges Laraque stated he's aiming for a return next week. He only played 17 games this season. Let's all hope he won't be back on the injured list anytime soon.

A Habs game at the Olympic Stadium?

Montreal Canadiens President Claude Boivin said the Habs will be notified if it will be possible to hold a hockey game at the Olympic Stadium. If it does happen the match could take place between Nov. 28 and Dec. 5 during the closing of festivities of the team's centennial.

Sure it won't be a Winter Classic, but it's a nice way to celebrate a team.
