Jets @ Canadiens: One Win Away | HABS GAME 4 PREVIEW

Game Preview

A Look Back

Who would have thought that the Habs would be in the position to close out the series, up 3-0 in the series after a dominant game three? It was the Habs depth players doing the damage as the fourth line got things started once again. The Jets had several quality chances but were unable to beat Carey Price. The momentum seemed to go the Habs way early. There is cause for concern tonight as Jeff Petry is a game-time decision having not played the third period on Sunday. Oddly, Petry injured his hand in the camera hole in the glass.

 Game Expectations
 Get ready for the best game of the series from the Jets. Their frustration is high but their desperation will be even higher. Will the Jets do the incredible and come back from three games to none or will the Habs have the killer instinct and send the Jets home early?

Bottom Line

The Jets will not go down without a fight and are going to try to get to Carey Price.
