Canadiens vs Kings game thread

Can the Canadiens avoid a repeat of their embarrassing loss against the Kings from earlier in the year? Tune in really late to find out.

Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports

The Canadiens are on a hot streak. They've put together two straight good games, but they're also riding a blistering 1062 PDO in their last ten games, which is both completely unsustainable and fun to watch.

Carey Price is out once again so Peter Budaj will start his 4th straight game, and hopefully the Canadiens will continue to give him goal support, because he's going to need it against Los Angeles, who are finally scoring after struggling for most of the season.

Montreal will be looking to avoid the same kind of drubbing they experienced when L.A. visited Montreal earlier this year.

Puck drop is at 10:30 PM.
