On Tuesday night, the Montreal Canadiens will be taking on the struggling penalty kill of the Calgary Flames.
Last year, the Flames beat the Canadians early on in the season, but Montreal was able to beat them in their second game matchup later on in the campaign. Both teams' wins were road wins, and the Canadiens ended up outscoring the Flames 4-3 in the short regular-season series.
Canadiens goalie Carey Price has faced the Flames six times in his career and is 2-4-0 against them with a .892 save percentage and a 3.04 GAA. Left wing Max Pacioretty has two goals and three assists in nine games against Calgary, but he also has a plus/minus of -4.
In their last game, the Flames had a hard time getting their offense going and ended up losing 3-1 to the Washington Capitals at home. They were just 1-for-3 on the power play in that game, but they were only able to get 21 shots on goal.
Left wing Mason Raymond and defenseman Dennis Wideman are tied for the team lead in goals for the Flames. Center Joe Colborne hasn't been able to score a goal yet this season, but he does have eight assists and a plus/minus of +3 through 10 games. Netminder Jonas Hiller has a 3-2-0 record with a solid 1.78 GAA and a .948 save percentage.
