The Canadiens are down 3-1 in the series and are hoping to find some success with a major obstacle in front of them.
“We’ve all gone through a lot this year, whether it’s injuries, tough stretches in the season,” said Habs defenseman Jeff Petry. “We found a way to get out of them and this is no different.”
Goals have been hard to come by for Montreal, who have been outscored 12-4 through four games. The power play has also been an area that needs improvement after going 0-for-13 so far.
Alex Galchenyuk, who spent the first six seasons of his NHL career with the Canadiens, has been enjoying playing his former team. The forward had a goal and two assists for the Maple Leafs after filling in the hole left by John Tavares‘ absence.
