CANUCKS (7-6-5) at CANADIENS (13-3-2)


Season series: The Vancouver Canucks ended the Montreal Canadiens' NHL record-setting streak of nine consecutive regulation wins to begin the season with a 5-1 victory at Rogers Arena on Oct. 27. Vancouver rookie Jared McCann scored twice and forward Derek Dorsett had a goal and an assist. Canucks defenseman Luca Sbisa and forward Radim Vrbata scored, Ryan Miller made 25 saves and forward Brandon Prust had two assists against his former team. Forward Torrey Mitchell scored for the Canadiens.

Canucks team scope: Vancouver coach Willie Desjardins doesn't expect his team will have much momentum carrying over from its lopsided win against the Canadiens three weeks ago. "[Montreal] had a tough game [saturday] night so they'll be real hungry at home, and we stopped their streak so they're going to want to give us payback, so it's going to be a tough game," Desjardins said after practice at Air Canada Centre in Toronto before the team flew to Montreal on Sunday, in a video posted on the Canucks website. Forward Alexandre Burrows missed practice and flew to Vancouver for personal reasons. "He went back and it's a good thing, so he's just back with his family," said Desjardins, who didn't rule out the possibility that Burrows could rejoin the Canucks in Montreal. Injured forward Brandon Sutter did not practice, though he may be ready to return to the lineup Monday. Prust and Sbisa, sidelined by ankle injuries, practiced Sunday.

Canadiens team scope: Montreal captain Max Pacioretty said after practice Sunday that the Canucks play a similar style to the Canadiens. "They're a fast team that gets pucks deep, plays simple, and that's always tough to play against," Pacioretty said. "That's the reason we're tough to play against and that's why they were able to beat us badly in their building. So it's a game where if you don't match their intensity for a full 60 (minutes) they'll make you pay, and we have to make sure we do that." The lines and defense pairs Montreal coach Michel Therrien used in the Canadiens' 6-1 loss against the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday remained the same at practice. Defenseman Alexei Emelin missed the game because of a lower-body injury and did not practice Sunday. Goalie Carey Price, who has been sidelined since Oct. 28 because of a lower-body injury, continued his rehab work on ice in full equipment with goaltending coach Stephane Waite after practice.

:rolleyes:Hunter Shinkaruk is a forward... I think Miller will probably play.

Emelin out. Unclear if it's Pateryn or Tinordi, but guessing Pateryn.

My mistake. Jacob Markstrom is the confirmed goalie for the Nucks. Patryn is confirmed in.

Just to get this out of the way,,,,the Habs game for htl will be blacked out. :rolleyes:
