Les Canadiennes Look For Sweep Against Toronto Furies

Coming off a 3-1 win on Saturday, Les Canadiennes look to make it three straight wins

Shanna Martin

After coming 41 seconds away from their second straight shutout, Les Canadiennes take on the Toronto Furies in their last home game of 2015. In two weekends, they go to their last series before their holiday break when they face the Brampton Thunder in Ontario.

Click here to see our recap of last night's game.

Toronto has now lost eight straight games (seven in regulation) after winning their season opener against the Boston Blades. Montreal has outshot their opponent in every game this season. With a win, Montreal will move into sole possession of second place, but will have played two less games than first place Calgary and currently second place Brampton.

Here are the lineups from Saturday's game.

Les Canadiennes

Chelsea Saunders - Karell Emard

Toronto Furies

Kristy Zamora - Sarah Stevenson - Tomomi Kurata
Jessica Vella - Ashton Hogan

Laurel Hill - Katie Gaskin


In goal today, the second half of back-to-back games, could be a chance for the backup goaltenders but both teams have clear number one goaltenders in Charline Labonté and Christina Kessler who have each missed only one start.

In the last series between these two teams, both backups played. Montreal's backup Sydney Aveson has her only career start against Toronto and with Kessler slow to get up after Montreal's third goal a day ago, Olivia Ross may jump in for the start. Montreal won 5-2 in that game.
