The Canadiens will be looking for a little bit of luck tonight as they head to the SAP Center. They’ve lost their last eight games in San Jose, and it will be interesting to see if the actual location of the game continues to hold some kind of curse over Montreal’s handling abilities, especially against the Sharks, who are coming home after winning their last road game.
The Canadiens (30-27-5) are trying to overcome any negative thoughts of SAP Center and will likely be playing their hardest to overcome their losing streak in San Jose. “It gives you a little extra motivation to go out there and play against a big, strong team and try to get the win ourselves.” said captain Max Pacioretty.
The team will be counting on that mindset, and goaltender Mike Condon, who made 31 saves against Toronto over the weekend.
The Sharks (33-22-6) are coming off a road win to protect their home ice yet again on Monday night, hoping to extend their winning streak against the Canadiens. San Jose is still holding strong to a playoff spot, but they’ll need to wake up quicker offensively than they have in their past few games against a Montreal team who is clearly hungry for a victory at the SAP Center.
The Canadiens just snapped their five game road losing streak against Washington, who’s leading the League right now, so that may be an indication of their passion for more road wins, especially those with a history.
- Montreal Canadiens -> Mike Condon
Mike Condon made 31 saves in the Canadiens’ 4-1 win against the Maple Leafs on Saturday night. The Maple Leafs got on the board first in the first period, but that was it. Condon has been quite impressive lately, allowing a total of seven goals in his past four games. He has gone 3-0-1 in that stretch. On the year, Condon sports a 2.50 goals against average and .906 save percentage
- San Jose Sharks -> Martin Jones
Martin Jones stopped 23 of 24 shots in Sunday’s 4-1 win over the Vancouver Canucks. The win puts an end to Jones’ personal two-game losing streak. The 26-year-old has a 30-17-4 record with a 2.33 goals-against-average and a .917 save percentage this season. With the acquisition of James Reimer, the Sharks may finally be able to give Jones some rest before the playoffs. Refer here for an update.
