The Habs and Sens are meeting tonight for the second time this season. There are a couple of notable streaks on the line, including the Canadiens' six-game road winning streak (their last road loss being against the Minnesota Wild on December 3), and Max Pacioretty's five game goal-scoring streak which lifted him to the 20-goal mark last night.
The Senators are coming off a four-game road trip that saw them walk away with only one win. As their team struggles to show some consistency under new coach Dave Cameron (6-6-3 since he took over), fans in Ottawa have been getting restless with their team's status. Talk about trading Craig Anderson for assets, the question of whether the team should officially enter a "rebuild", and how bad at defense Erik Karlsson has been this year (he's -18) have made Ottawa a disgruntled hockey city.
The displeasure in Sensville may increase tonight if the Habs can put forth a good performance coming off their win in Columbus last night. A showering of "Olé's" from the stands would certainly be nice to hear...
The teams hit the ice at 7:30 PM EST. Go Habs Go!
