The Montreal Canadiens wrap up their first road trip of the season tonight, when they face the Winnipeg Jets at the MTS Center at 8:00 PM EST.
Montreal began their road trip with an underwhelming performance in Calgary that resulted in a 3-2 loss to the Flames. A bounce back game against the Edmonton Oilers and Carey Price’s best start of the year resulted in consecutive 4-1 wins for the Habs. They will look to end the road test with a 3-1-0 record tonight.
The Jets enter tonight’s contest with a 3-3-0 record on the season, including 2-2-0 at the MTS Center. They were able to shut out the struggling New Jersey Devils in their last game on Sunday night.
Winnipeg has been led offensively by their top defensive pairing of Dustin Byfuglien and Tobias Enstrom. The pair have each scored six points in six games, and are tied for the team lead. Evander Kane has scored three goals and five points thus far, and is a dangerous offensive weapon looking to break our, as he has registered 30 shots on goal already in the young season.
