The Montreal Canadiens play their first road game of the season Thursday night, when he will visit the Washington Capitals. This match will be presented from 19 am on RDS.
The Canadiens lost all four games against the team of the U.S. capital last year. After two 3-0, Montreal conceded defeats of 4-1 and 3-2 in a shootout. The Canadiens lost more than two games in the 2010-2011 season against the Capitals. This means that HP is a series of six consecutive defeats against Washington. The last victory against the Canadiens Alexander Ovechkin and his band back to February 1, 2011.
The Habs now has a 1-1 record thanks to its 4-1 victory Tuesday against the Panthers. At this gain, Alex Galchenyuk scored his first goal in the NHL while defenseman Andrei Markov scored twice.
Wednesday training, Michel Therrien has not made any changes to these trios. This means that Lars Eller and Yannick Weber would be left once more. Francis Bouillon did not take part in the training as it was off therapy.
Troupe Therrien should be wary Capitals likely to be hungry before their supporters. Washington has not yet found the path to victory in two games. Alexander Ovechkin has not donned the needle, having collected an assist.
The newcomer and former player of the Habs, Mike Ribeiro jumped the leads in the last game of his team. Ribeiro garlanded the referee after he received a stick to the face during an up in. The gesture was not punished.
Late in the game, Ribeiro launched a few words to the referee after a goal of his own. It awarded him a punishment and No. 9 Caps continued to scream and the official was expelled from the meeting.
