Coming off his greatest game with the Canadiens, Samuel Montembeault has gotten the call once again to take on the Vegas Golden Knights. Even scoring five goals, the Habs wouldn’t have come away with their regulation win versus the Dallas Stars without his effort in the crease.

That also means the defence’s issues locking down opposing teams continues, with little to suggest things are going to change without some personnel changes. Not surprisingly, that’s one of the areas Kent Hughes hinted at as being a major focus of his first moves. He wants to play an up-tempo style, and the first thing needed for that is to gain possession of the puck in the defensive zone.

Being such a late game for the hometown fans, we’ll all hope that the offence will stay as hot as it was on Tuesday evening. It’s been rare that the team has scored five goals in a game, but a second straight outburst would be welcome.
