Minus Lars Eller, Max Pacioretty and Brian Gionta, the Canadiens came out on fire Friday, defeating the Ottawa Senators 3-1 and tying their series 1-1. Bouncing back after a deflating first game, the Habs were led by the strong play of Carey Price, Rene Bourque, and Ryan White - White playing what was likely the best game of his young NHL career.
Brandon Prust and Raphael Diaz also played inspriing hockey, as Montreal avenged the game one hit on Lars Eller the best way any team can - with a win.
The Habs now head to Ottawa for a rare Sunday night tilt with the Senators, an arena where Carey Price has gone 6-0-2 in his last eight starts. Ottawa often seems like a home game for the Habs, as thousands of Montrealers and local fans pack the arena. Montreal hopes to have Brian Gionta and Max Pacioretty back in the lineup, while the Senators seem likely to swap Cory Conacher back in for Matt Kassian, who had little to no discernable impact for the Sens on Friday night.
Game three. We've got a series. Should be very, very good.

About The Upper Canadien
The Upper Canadien is your one stop shop for all things Montreal Canadiens. Since the summer of 2010, I've been providing Habs related news, notes, and most importantly, opinions. As a blogger, I don't believe it's my job to report the news, it's my privilege to comment on it. You may disagree with what I suggest. In fact, you most likely will. But that's the great part about blogging: it spurs opinion, comment and engages all involved. I've really enjoyed all the debate and commentary from readers thus far and I encourage everyone to respond with ideas on lineups, trades, logos, sweaters, mascots, whatever. The Upper Canadien is a conversation for all hockey fanatics.
I've come to Kukla's Korner with four years of campus radio and three years of sportswriting from my time at Mount Allison University on Canada's East coast. Not only do I not have any professional journalistic training, after five years in the corporate world, I've spent much of the past two years completing an MBA. Business by day, hockey by night, I'm a Canadiens fan through and through. I hope you enjoy reading as much as I do writing.
