Habs - Sens tonight.
Two games in two nights are scheduled for the Montreal Canadiens. First stop is tonight in Kanata. The Ottawa Senators are trying to gain home ice advantage for the playoffs until the end of the regular season as the Habs are fighting for their playoff life.
Both teams are on a good streak, Ottawa is 7-1-2 in the last 10 games as Montreal will try to improove their winning streak to 6 in a row. Tonight's game promises a lot of action and intensity. Ottawa has won most of the matchups between the two teams this season but Montreal is playing with desperation since 10 days. Should be a good one.
Jaroslav Halak will get another start in net for Montreal, the only difference is that he will be backed up by Christobal Huet who has been practicing with the team for a full week. Huet has recovered from his his leg injury and should be able to make at least one start before the end of the season. Montreal is now controlling their own destiny as they still hold 8th place of the Eastern conference.
