Up Next ---> The Defending Cup Champions

The Montreal Canadiens conclude their western road trip tonight, when they face the defending cup champion, Anaheim Ducks. The Habs can retake first place in the East with a win over the Ducks.

Carey Price gets the call tonight, taking over for Jaroslav Halak, who had an outstanding game on Saturday versus the LA Kings.

The Ducks will be playing their first game without leading goal scorer, Corey Perry, who will be out until at least the second round of the playoffs, after getting cut by a skate.

The Ducks have not scored in their last 130 minutes of game time. The last time they score was in their 3-1 win against the Ottawa Senators.

The Canadiens have won 2 of their games so far out west and remain 2 points ahead of the Senators for the Northeast division lead. The Habs currently hold the second best road record in the NHL, while Anaheim holds the second best home record. Montreal also has the second most goals in the league, one behind the Senators.
