It's a very special edition of Locked on Canadiens!
Laura welcomes Jay Forster from Locked on Blue Jackets to the show today to discuss all the goings on in Columbus ahead of the Canadiens/Blue Jackets game on Thursday!
Among the first things discussed is the absolute mountain of injuries facing the Blue Jackets as their injury list rivals that of the Montreal Canadiens last season, but how is the Columbus team different than the Habs last year? Also, where has this year gone totally wrong for the Blue Jackets? Despite landing Johnny Gaudreau and retaining Patrik Laine the offence has continued to struggle and have been a tough watch on many nights.
Then, it's time for Jay to grill Laura on the surprising start by the Montreal Canadiens! Is the goaltending duo of Jake Allen and Samuel Montembeault going to be able to keep up sustainable pace as the season wears on? Or are there still some concerns about the coaching and playing style that are going to bring Montreal back down to earth? What issues are facing the Habs, and can Nick Suzuki and Cole Caufield overcome them? Or is Montreal's dominant one line approach going to end up sinking Montreal when regression happens?
Plus, Laura effuses nothing but praise for Martin St-Louis and his impact on the Habs young players and some veterans!
Finally, the duo of Laura and Jay give their predictions on the Columbus vs. Montreal game, and what they expect from both teams. Can Mike Hoffman keep his run of form going and help the Habs avoid the defensive issues they suffered against the Devils? Will the Blue Jackets beleaguered, very inexperienced defence cost them against the Habs?
