The Montreal Canadiens waited until the 9th game of the regular season to win a first game in regulation. A convincing 5-1 victory over the New York Islanders on Thursday night.
It is true that the best performance of the season came against one of the weakest team of the league but the way the team has been playing lately, any good news is welcome.
Scott Gomez, Marc-Andre Bergeron, Max Pacioretty, Mike Cammalleri, and Maxim Lapierre scored for Montreal while only Josh Bailey beat Jaroslav Halak and avoided the shut out.
The Canadiens are currently on two wins in a row and will play the New York Rangers on Saturday evening. Who will be in net for the Canadiens on Saturday? Jaroslav Halak or Carey Price?
Head coach Jacques Martin has an important decision to make.
