Habs open brief road trip at New Jersey

The Montreal Canadiens cross the border to spend U.S. Thanksgiving in the States this week, opening up a two-game road trip against the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday night at the Prudential Center.

The Canadiens (11-6-4) have little interest in Thursday's holiday and day off, but instead itch to get back on the ice in New Jersey after blowing a two-goal lead and losing their last game, a 5-4 overtime defeat on home ice to the Washington Capitals on Monday.

Montreal scored three straight goals to open the second period and secure that lead on Monday before falling flat the rest of the way and failing to extend their win streak to three games. Goaltender Carey Price made 29 saves, including a spectacular stop on Washington's Alex Ovechkin in the final seconds of regulation, earning the praise of his teammates and the respect from Ovechkin, who applauded Price after the play.
