Montreal Canadiens vs. New York Rangers

How to watch

Start time: 7:00 PM EST / 4:00 PM PST
In the Canadiens region: TSN2 (English), RDS (French)
In the Rangers region: MSG

The Canadiens didn’t have much fun as a team on the road trip, starting off with a win and then rattling off six straight losses the rest of the way. But it was still a decent stretch of games for Cole Caufield, who added four goals to his season tally, and three in the last two games.

Caufield drags the Habs into the Bell Centre for the first home game since December 17, aiming to keep his personal game rolling. Injuries have impacted the makeup of the team, but his line has ll of its members available, and there are plenty of other players who should be able to provide something to help him out a bit.
