The emotions around the Habs are running high as they are still enraged with Eric Gryba's hit on Lars Eller. The hit caused Eller to suffer facial and dental factures, loss of consciousness and a concussion.

The team announced this morning that Eller had been discharged from the hospital and is at home. Michel Therrien couldn't comment on the hit because of league rules but he made it clear he was furious with Paul MacLean's comments about the hit.

"That was a lack of respect to Lars Eller, a lack of respect to his family and I'm never going to accept that."

After last night's game MacLean deflected the blame from his own player Gryba, to Habs defenseman Raphael Diaz

"The player I would really be mad at is 61 (Diaz), that's a dangerous place to be" MacLean said.

Some may argue that Diaz's pass to Eller was considered to be a suicide pass putting Eller in a vulnerable position

"It's a hockey play that ended up badly for Eller" MacLean went on to say.

Therrien wasn't the only one fired up today by his comments, Brandon Prust had some interesting choice of words when it came to MacLean's view of the hit.

"We don't really care about what that bug-eyed fat walrus has to say."

The war has just started between the Habs and the Senators who did not have a history of any bad blood between the two teams.

Trying to even the series with Ottawa will be a challenge tonight for the Habs as both Brian Gionta and Max Pacioretty are out with upper body injuries and won't play.

Gabriel Dumont, Jeff Halpern and Colby Armstrong will all be in the lineup for the Habs tonight as injury replacements.
