Habs & Flyers: Game 4 + Lineup News

The Canadiens will try to tie the series at 2 and restore home-ice advantage tonight with a win in Philadelphia.

The Habs ran out of time to tie game 3 on Monday night, recovering from a 3-0 deficit to narrow the score to 3-2 before time expired.

Montreal will likely welcome Patrice Brisebois back to the lineup tonight, and the likely candidate to sit out will be Ryan O'Byrne.

No word on who gets the call in goal, but Carbonneau said today that he knows who will be in net come gametime, and the chosen goalie knows as well, but he won't reveal it to reporters.

Price's usual start is in question tonight after he allowed 3 goals on 6 shots in the 2nd period in the game 3 loss before being replaced by Jaroslav Halak, who held the fort in the 3rd making just 2 saves, one of them critical.

The Flyers are also receiving some welcome help as they will be embracing the return of Mike Knuble to the lineup tonight. Knuble strained his hamstring in game 5 of the Philly-Washington series, but has stated that he's fit to return tonight.

Martin Biron, who has proven the old addage "You have to be good to be lucky and lucky to be good" true, gets the call in goal again for Philadelphia.
