The Canadiens can put together their second three-game winning streak of the season. In their first such string, Claude Julien's troops beat the Pittsburgh Penguins, Detroit Red Wings, and St. Louis Blues starting October 13. This will be the first of two meetings between the Habs and Hawks, with the second taking place on March 16 at the Bell Centre.
The Blackhawks are going through a rough patch of late, having lost six consecutive games. Jeremy Colliton's squad only won three games in November and have yet to taste victory in December. Acquired from the Arizona Coyotes on November 25 in exchange for Nick Schmaltz, centerman Dylan Strome is enjoying some success with his new team. The forward has three goals in his first six games for Chicago.
