The Montreal Canadiens managed to pull off a nice win against the Bruins a week ago, and they will try to do it again tonight, as the two great rivals meet again, this time in Boston.
We are broadcasting this duel from 19:00 on TVA Sport.
Meanwhile, Martin St-Louis’ players have stumbled three times: after being badly beaten by the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday, they conceded two narrow losses to the Calgary Flames and Vegas Golden Knights.
That means the Habs have won just two of their last nine games and will be looking to slow down this serious slump that began on October 30th. Tonight’s game is the first of five away games, as the team will then play three games in California and another in Columbus.
The Bruins, for their part, will be resting after playing just one game since losing to CH, last Tuesday’s 5-2 win against the Buffalo Sabres.
Their forward David Pastrnak, moreover, does not falter with a harvest of 24 points in 15 games. If he maintains his pace, Pastrnak will finish the season with sixty goals and 131 points, despite the departure of Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci.
Canadiens coach Martin St-Louis forced his players to practice yesterday. Some players, such as Brendan Gallagher, Cole Caufield, Juraj Slafkovski and Tanner Pearson were seen sweating profusely.
A robust Arber journey.
With Cayden Primeau in net for the team last game and Samuel Montembeault on duty against the Flames, there’s a good chance veteran Jake Allen will be named tonight. St-Louis should provide more details about his training sessions around noon.
