Preview, fo' realz: Sens v. Habs, Jan. 17, 2009

Ottawa hasn't won three games in a row all season.

Montréal is 8-2 in their last ten games.

Ottawa has a relatively full lineup, with the exception of Anton Volchenkov.

Much of Montréal's recent tear has been without Saku Koivu, Alex Tanguay, Chris Higgins, or Carey Price.

Ottawa is 13th in the Eastern Conference, with a record of 13-21-6, for 36 points.

Montréal is 4th in the Eastern Conference, with a record of 26-11-6, for 58 points.

But still, Brian Elliott is playing! And Ottawa has looked alright in the last two games, both wins with Elliott playing pretty well, and primary and secondary scoring contributing.

A friend of mine, Wassim, who happens to be a Habs fan (hey, nobody's perfect... ), is so confident that Montréal will win the game tonight that he's offered to personally send $1 Canadian to each and every Ottawa Senators player who scores tonight if the Sens win.

I hope Ottawa wins 1,000,000-0 tonight. Take that, Wassim!
