Is playoff action next for Canadiens’ Tinordi?

Jarred Tinordi was one of eight call-ups from the Hamilton Bulldogs of the American Hockey League to the Montreal Canadiens earlier this week, and there is talk the 2010 first-round pick could perhaps see action in the playoffs.

Here is a little bit of what Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette wrote:

Tinordi, 6-foot-6 and 210 (at least) pounds, will be in the lineup Thursday. There will be no word from head coach Michel Therrien until after game-day morning skate on who comes out in his place.

And if Tinordi performs well, it’s possible — perhaps likely — that he’ll see action in the playoffs which begin next week.

“It’s special to be around Montreal during playoff time,” Tinordi told the Montreal Gazette.

“Whether you’re playing or not, you’re excited to be there. But obviously you’re hoping to get a chance to play. So you work hard and wait to see what happens.”

Tinordi, 21, has just six career National Hockey League games to his name, and just one assist in that span.

The Habs seem like a team in need of a spark.
They have a playoff secured but are battling the Boston Bruins for the Northeast Division and the second seed in the Eastern Conference standings. Those two teams are tied at 59 points, although the Bruins have a game in hand.
The Canadiens have also lost five of their last six games.
