the 2 top teams in each division meet for the second time this season....last time montreal lost by 1 POINT at BC Place!
the Lions are NOT the same team they were then, losing 3 in a row. injuries to Dave Dickenson, Buck Pierce, AND Casey Printers, make the Als the Favorites. Montreal is 4-1 in thier last 5 games.
BC is watching thier lead over the 2nd place Eskimos vanish b4 thier eyes....they NEED this win to keep a 4 point cushion in the West.
Montreal also NEEDS this win to either take sole possession of first in the East, or keep pace with the Argos for 1st in the East ( depending on the outcome of the Argos-BlueBomber game later today ).
all the story lines are there.
this game coulda EASILY sold out the 50 000 seat 'Big O'.
