Anaheim (12-12-5) at Montreal (15-7-5) 7:00 pm EST
MONTREAL (Ticker) -- If nothing else, the Montreal Canadiens should
be fresh for Saturday's game against the Mighty Ducks of
The Canadiens have not played since a 3-2 win vs. Los Angeles
last Saturday. Pierre Dagenais scored twice and Jan Bullis
netted a shorthanded goal early in the third period to help
Montreal snap its season-long four-game losing streak.
Anaheim got its three-game road trip off to a disappointing
start Thursday, dropping a 3-2 overtime decision in Buffalo.
The Ducks held leads of 1-0 and 2-1 with under four minutes
remaining before Jean Sebastien-Giguere surrendered the
game-tying goal late in the third and the game-winner just over
two minutes into overtime.
Joffrey Lupul had a goal and an assist for Anaheim, which has
dropped two straight games following a four-game winning streak.
Montreal leads the all-time series, 9-5-2, including a 5-2
victory on March 8, 2004 in the last meeting.
