Biggest game of the year

3 goal comeback versus the Devils before the All-Star break, historic 5 goal comeback against the Rangers, and Tuesdays 4-0 win against the Devils, all these can be considered the most important games of the 2008 season. None, however, are more important than the game against the Ottawa Senators tonight.

The Canadiens can take a 4 point lead for the Northeast division with a win over the Sens.

Carey Price, who is coming off his second career shutout, will make his 3rd straight start, versus martin Gerber, who will be starting his 7th straight game.

The last time these two clubs met, the Sens scored 3 goals in the opening 5 minutes to win the game 6-1. The Heatly-Alfredsson-Spezza line accounted for all 6 goals.

On the plus side, TSN reports that Daniel Alfredsson will be a game time decision tonight, but head coach Brian Murray expects him to miss his 5th straight game.
