The Montreal Canadiens came out strong on Monday night. Unfortunately it lasted just 20 minutes.

Down 2-0 to the visiting team, the Philadelphia Flyers dominated the Candadiens in the final two periods for a 3-2 win.

The loss cannot be blamed on Carey Price, who faced 45 shots on the night, notably in the second period, where the Flyers outshot the Canadiens 21-5 in the second period.

Ville Leino, Claude Giroux and James van Riemsdyk scored for Philadelphia

Maxim Lapierre had the two goals for Montreal.

The Canadiens roster will remain the same as Saturday, with Price getting his 20th start of the season.

Don't be surprised however to see coach Jacques Martin mix up the lines just before or after puck drop.
