Liveblog: Canadiens at Ottawa
|Montreal Gazette 06 Dec 2018 at 14:28|
It’s expected to be minus-2 when the puck drops Thursday evening in Kanata, where the home-team Senators will have revenge on their minds after Tuesday’s loss at the Bell Centre.
The Canadiens dominated every aspect of the 5-2 win, as Claude Julien’s in-game line shuffle paid big dividends.
If Wednesday’s practice was an accurate indicator, Andrew Shaw will be back with Max Domi and Jonathan Drouin; while Andrew Shaw resumes duty with Jesperi Kotkaniemi and Artturi Lehkonen.
Carey Price , who has regained some semblance of his vintage form in the four games since Shea Weber returned to the lineup, will try to continue his mastery of the Senators: 24-9-5 lifetime.
Craig Anderson is 12-12-3 against the Canadiens, but you couldn’t pin Tuesday’s loss on the Ottawa netminder. Anderson’s teammates were pathetic in the defensive zone.
