Montreal Canadiens @ Calgary Flames

How to watch

Start time: 9:00 PM EST / 6:00 PM PST
In the Canadiens region: TSN2 (English), RDS (French)
In the Flames region: Sportsnet West

After another one of their games when they decided passing was more fun that shooting, and not surprisingly getting shut out in the process, the Canadiens have hit the road, entering the Saddledome with what should be a different mindset.

We can expect Sean Monahan to be eager for some offence, despite the fact he was wearing a protective boot upon his arrival in Calgary. Kirby Dach finished things off when the Habs went to Chicago for his return, and it would be fitting if Monahan could be the one to do that tonight. He’ll have Juraj Slafkovský and Josh Anderson as wingers this evening based off today’s practice lines, and hopefully they’ll want a good result just as much as he does.
