This is the last easy one.

Not that any game is easy for your Montreal Canadiens.

But Tuesday evening’s dance with Anaheim at the Bell Centre will be followed by home games against Winnipeg and Toronto, followed by visits to Nashville, Florida and – gulp! – Tampa Bay.

So let’s call it a less-challenging one.

The Ducks played Monday night and were pasted 6-1 in Toronto. The Leafs rang up 44 shots and chased John Gibson.

Anaheim’s last visit to the Bell Centre was 362 days ago. The Ducks fired 45 shots at Antti Niemi, who stopped 43 of them in a 5-2 Canadiens win.

Carey Price  – 7-2 in 2019 – gets the start. The Canadiens will be without Paul Byron, and that loss could last for a while.
