7:00 PM RDS, SN, TSN 690


"We've got to go in there with the mindset that it's going to take a full 60 minutes, if not more, to beat a team like that," left wing Max Pacioretty told the team's official website. "We have to have that mindset that we're willing to do whatever it takes every shift."
Pacioretty leads the Canadiens with 21 goals, but he only has two in the last 14 and none in the past three versus the Capitals.
P.K. Subban doesn't have a point in the two matchups this season despite leading Montreal with 46.
The Canadiens head out on a quick road trip to Washington, where they prepare to take on the league leading Capitals on Wednesday night.


The Washington Capitals' sizable lead atop the NHL affords them the luxury of already preparing for a playoff run, something they clearly had in mind with their first in-season acquisition.
With Mike Weber potentially making his team debut, the Capitals go for a six-game home winning streak Wednesday night against the Montreal Canadiens.
Washington (44-10-4) has a comfy 10-point edge on Western Conference-leading Dallas in the race for the Presidents' Trophy. It's also 17 points ahead of Florida for the top seed in the East.
The Capitals allow just 2.28 goals per game to rank behind only New Jersey's league-low 2.25.
They also lead the league with an average of 3.29 goals scored thanks in large part to Alex Ovechkin's NHL-leading 39.
Ovechkin is on a tear, scoring 11 goals during Washington's 9-1-0 run.
Braden Holtby is 8-0-2 with a 1.36 goals-against average in 10 career starts against the Canadiens, starting each of the last three matchups. He's 17-0-1 with a 2.03 GAA in 19 home starts since his most recent regulation loss on Oct. 28 against Pittsburgh.

Speaking of which, has there been any word/video/rumor on Price's new expected return date? Has it been officially announced that his season is finished?

I was wondering the same thing ... seems around the time we usually get the "nutter 4-6 weeks" tell all update.

I suspect they are waiting for us to be officially eliminated (since that won't be much longer)

Therrien said yesterday in his press conference that we can expect to see a lot of ice time given to the kids for the rest of the season and that it would be a good chance to evaluate young talent. So what do we see? DLR on the 3rd line, Andrighetto demoted to the 4th, and Lessio in the pressbox. Clearly, Therrien still hanging on to his veterans as he clings to his job. Doesn't have the best interests of the franchise at heart.
