Wishing the Streak to Two

Habs go for their second in a row tonight. Kostopolous appears slated for first line duty again with Koivu and Kovalev. Halak brings his 46 save performance the other night into Van City, hoping that this time his team doesn't go to sleep for the last two periods. Mathieu Dandenault goes for a three game point streak, which would be his season-high. Vancouver remains hot, as Sundin has finally awoken from his hibernation and finally looks interested in playing.

Other Habs tidbits this AM, rumours still that Gainey would love to pry Havlat from Chicago (Ottawa Sun), Bouwmeester is likely to be dealt (Toronto Sun), and the Coyotes are indeed shopping Jokinen, Morris, et al (ESPN). Any of these guys would help lessen the loss of Robert Lang and give a push to a team playing like an '84 Chevy Corvair.

And lastly, Kyle Chipchura has joined the team after being called up. He practiced the other night and took the skate but did not play. I liked the look of his last year. Doc, does he get in on the fourth line party, or is Laraque just so good that we have to keep playing him?
