The New Jersey Devils and Montreal Canadiens meet on Monday night as the Devils look to put the brakes on what has become a 3 game losing skid.
Montreal continues to manage their lead atop what is a crowded Atlantic Division, but things continue to be thin.
A 3-7-1 stretch has seen Montreal drop their lead to just 2 points over Ottawa. All three of those wins from Montreal have came away from home, as they enter play 15-12-3 away from Montreal.
The Canadiens come in off an impressive win in Toronto as Andrew Shaw found the back of the net to secure a 3-2 win.
Carey Price continues his up and down season and he enters play with a 2.42 GAA and a 26-16-5 record this year.
Winning in overtime has also been a common theme for this Canadiens team. All 3 of their wins over this past 10 game stretch have come in the extra period.
Their last regulation win was back on Jan 31st when they bested Buffalo 5-2.
New Jersey Devils
The Devils come in after dropping a tough 4-3 decision to the Rangers. The loss now puts them at 0-2-1 over their last 3 and they’ll look to snag at least one game of this homestand here on Monday night.
New Jersey is likely destined to miss the playoffs this season, as they sit 8 points out of the 2nd Wild Card with 5 teams to jump in between.
Small losing streaks like this have added up as they have seen themselves lose back to back games and 3 or 4 in a row on many occasions.
Scoring has been a big issue for them.
New Jersey has averaged just 2.28 goals per game this season, one of the worst marks in the NHL.
Expect the Devils to really struggle with possession and time on attack here in this one, as Montreal is extremely good at playing the game at their own pace.
