The Canadiens look to snap a three-game winless streak on Tuesday night when they open a two-game road trip with a tilt against the Dallas Stars at American Airlines Center.

Claude Julien's troops are coming off a 6-0 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night in Montreal.

Goaltender Charlie Lindgren will make his eighth straight start for the Canadiens on Tuesday.

For his part, defenseman Jordie Benn will play in front of the Stars' faithful for the first time since being traded last February.

Both Carey Price and David Schlemko accompanied the team on the road trip after returning to practice on Monday at the Bell Sports Complex. Price remains day-to-day with a minor lower-body injury. No date has been set for his return. Schlemko's return to active duty from a hand injury is still to be determined as well.

Tuesday night's contest will mark the Canadiens' first meeting against Alexander Radulov since the Russian sniper signed with Dallas over the summer. Radulov sits second on the Stars with 19 points (7g, 12a) alongside John Klingberg (4g, 15a). Captain Jamie Benn leads the way in that department with 21 points (11g, 10a).

 

The Canadiens are at or near the bottom of the league in offense (31st), defense (29th), penalty killing (28th), power-play percentage (27th) and faceoff wins (21st).

OK, prediction time.

Dallas, with Radulov, will play an effective game against the piecemeal Habs defense, which leaves Lindgren out to dry again.  Dallas is only one point out of a playoff spot, while Montreal, with one or two more bad games, will have the worst goal differential in the NHL.  I say they make it there as they continue to struggle against Western teams.  Stars 4-1.  Habs either score in the first five minutes or the last five minutes of the game.

OH, and in other news.....the Vegas Golden Knights handed it to the #1 team in the Pacific Division as the led the Kings the whole way and won 4-2.  Vegas is now one point out of first place in their division.  ONE POINT.  Now if they could just translate the same game they play on home ice to their road games, they will cruise to the playoffs in style.
