On today's Twitter topic of unpublished NHL books, my entry: "Tips for Promoting Your Client. Hmm." by Allan Walsh.
Carey Price plans to wear the Remembrance Day mask tonight that will later be auctioned to support Canadian Forces' families.
Robert Lang will be in the Phoenix lineup to face his former team for the first time after a season-ending achilles injury against the Bruins.
No targets on the jersey of Kurt Sauer, who won't be in the lineup for the Coyotes. Sauer delivered a vicious head-shot that put Andrei Kostitsyn out for a few games out with a concussion last season. It was also memorable as Georges Laraque decided to pass on fighting Sauer. BGL said that Sauer, at 6'4" 225 lbs.,was too small to meet 'the code'.
Game time is 9 pm. EST.
expected Canadiens lineup
Gomez, Gionta, Cammalleri
Plekanec, Pyatt, Andrei Kostitsyn
Metropolit, Moen, Pacioretty
Lapierre, White, Latendresse
