In what will be a homecoming of sorts for fullback Patrick Lavoie, for many of his Ottawa RedBlacks teammates, it could be a coming-out party -- a hard-hitting game that will rekindle an old rivalry.

Following Saturday's 21-17 loss to the Saskatchewan Roughriders, the RedBlacks head into Montreal Friday for their second and final exhibition game -- with much more on the line than a victory or defeat.

What happens on the field will go a long way toward deciding who makes or doesn't make the cut when the RedBlacks chop down to their final roster Saturday night. The game could also be a chance for football fans to get a look at Montreal's Chad Johnson, a former NFL star.
