Season series: Defenseman P.K. Subban scored in overtime and Carey Price made 36 saves for the Montreal Canadiens, who defeated the Nashville Predators 2-1 at Bell Centre on Jan. 20. Mike Ribeiro scored for the Predators.

Canadiens team scope: Montreal begins a two-game road trip in Nashville, where Price will start and look for his third straight shutout; he defeated the Carolina Hurricanes 4-0 on Thursday and the San Jose Sharks 2-0 on Saturday. Price leads the NHL in wins (40), goals-against average (1.86) and save percentage (.938). "He's been unbelievable all year," forward Dale Weise told the Canadiens website after practice Monday. "He's been our MVP. He's definitely the League MVP in my book." Though the Predators have struggled recently, forward Max Pacioretty knows playing in Nashville is no easy task; the Predators are 27-7-2 at Bridgestone Arena. "They are a team that's been in the top of the standings all year, and they're a team that plays desperate hard hockey every night," he said. "It's a good test for us to go into a building that might be tough to play in this year." Pacioretty has five goals in his past nine games.

Leading Scorer: Max Pacioretty (35-28-63)
Ice Time Leader: P.K. Subban (26:08)

Predators team scope: Nashville looks for its first two-game winning streak in a month. The Predators defeated the Buffalo Sabres 3-0 on Saturday and face five current Stanley Cup Playoff teams in a row. Following Montreal, Nashville visits the Tampa Bay Lightning and Washington Capitals before home games with the Calgary Flames and Vancouver Canucks. "It's a huge two points for either team," goalie Pekka Rinne said after practice Monday. "Price is one of the better goalies in the League, and a guy I like to watch and have a lot of respect for. … We've playing for the top position in the League." The Predators have 96 points, three behind the Canadiens, Anaheim Ducks and New York Rangers for the League lead. Rookie forward Filip Forsberg hasn't forgotten the result the last time these teams played. "Every time you play those good teams, it's a good test," he said. "Montreal has been really good. They beat us last time so we want to beat them back."

Leading Scorer: Filip Forsberg (21-34-55)
Ice Time Leader: Roman Josi (26:28)

All Time Record vs. Nashville: 10-5-1-1 (.647 Point %)
