Heading into Montreal for tonight's game, B.C.'s slotback Jason Clermont is ready to help put the Leos back in the win column. Coming off a career high in catches and yards last season, the seven-year veteran has 31 catches so far this year for three touchdowns and 393 yards - putting him third overall on the team.

24 hours: Does having previously beaten Montreal - the top team in the East - factor into the approach of the Lions?

#82 Jason Clermont: "It doesn't matter what your history is against a team. Everyone's a pro and we got to approach each game like we're playing the Grey Cup champs."

24: Montreal is tops in scoring, B.C. is fourth. Does this set up for a run-and-gun game?

#82: "Maybe it does, maybe it doesn't. We've got a strong defence and we've got all the confidence in our D to shut down Calvillo and the offence, so we're looking forward to making a statement this week."

24: What does the Lions' offence have to do different this week, especially with Buck Pierce in?

#82: "We just need to manage the game whatever the tempo is. If it's going to be a shootout, we just have to go out there and put points up on the board, if our defence is playing well, we're going to manage the clock and just drive down the field and score points."

24: Is there a change of style with Pierce in?

#82: "It's the same as with [Jarious Jackson] in. Jarious has a bit of a longer arm and Buck likes to move his feet in the pocket and throw shorter outs when he's in trouble but we just want a little more production out of our entire offence."

24: What part of your own game are you going to focus most on?

#82: "Personally, I want to make sure that I'm finishing every play and just not cheating my teammates out of any effort from each play."
