Montreal looks to end their woes, and they have the perfect opportunity.

After losing their third game in a row last night, Montreal now has 4 wins in their last 12 games. Washington is on a 5 game losing streak, and have gone 2-6-2 in their last 10. Essentially we have a battle of the sinking ships on the menu tonight.

Alex Ovechkin is a game-time decision, which could help the Canadiens, as he's been known to torch their defense every time they play.

Therrien usually plays Budaj in back-to-back situations, so we may end up seeing Price as the back-up.

Puck drop is at 7:00 PM at the Bell Centre.
