CANADIENS (27-11-6) @ RED WINGS (18-19-6)

TV: FS-D, SNE, RDS

3:00pm

The Canadiens look to stay hot on the road when they face the Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena on Monday afternoon.

Montreal and Detroit have already met twice this season, with the Habs coming out on top on both occasions -- including by a 2-1 overtime decision on November 26.

On Saturday, Michel Therrien's men battled back from three one-goal deficits at home to defeat the New York Rangers in regulation.

Alex Galchenyuk, Brian Flynn, Alexei Emelin, Max Pacioretty and Paul Byron were the Habs goalscorers, with the latter three scoring just 62 seconds apart.

With the win, Montreal improved to a nine-point lead over the second place Boston Bruins in the Atlantic Division.

At practice on Sunday, Daniel Carr replaced Michael McCarron on a line with Torrey Mitchell and Brian Flynn. Carr was a healthy scratch against the Rangers on Saturday. 

Carey Price meanwhile will make a 33rd start this season on Monday, likely opposite Petr Mrazek.

Called up from the St. John's IceCaps on Sunday, Jacob de la Rose for his part made the trip with his teammates to Detroit, but his status for Monday's game is unknown.

The Red Wings ended a three-game losing streak on Saturday, with a 6-3 home win against the Penguins, but continue to deal with injury woes and will be without the services of Jimmy Howard, Niklas Kronwall and Brendan Smith.

Game time on Monday is scheduled for 3:00 p.m., and will be broadcast on Sportsnet East and RDS as the United States observes Martin Luther King Day.

Hi all. Swedish Habs fan here, since the days of Mats Naslund in mid 80s. I watch almost every Habs game this season and enjoy reading this forum. 

Welcome from Canada. It's a pleasure to have you here. Ah yes, I fondly remember watching Naslund play, he'll always be one of my favorites.

Thank you! Naslund was my favourite player in his swedish team Brynäs and the Canadiens immediately became my team when he left for the NHL. Naslund joined Brynäs in 1979, moving in to Gavle and Brynas from small town Timra. Another swede that played for the Canadiens at that time, Kjell Dahlin, also came from Timra. And, myself, I learned to skate at Timrå ice stadium in 1975 :)

I remember Dahlin well also. I have both of their rookie cards in my Habs collection.

Have a feeling this will be a lightly attended GDT..

 

We might have the odd farmer, or minister attending. :)
