The battle for first place is on

The Montreal Canadiens face off against the New Jersey Devils tonight, in one of the most anticipated games of the year, as the winner will claim first place in the Eastern Conference.

Carey Price will once again face off against Marin Brodeur, who has lost 2 straight games to the Habs, after winning the previous 9.

The Habs will once again be without Tomas Pleckanec, who will miss his second straight game with the flu. Ryan O'byrne will be back in the lineup, taking over for Patrice Brisebois, who has been less than stellar this season.

The last time these two clubs met, the Habs won an intense goalie battle 2-1. Andrei Kostitsyn scored the game winner late in the third period.
