The Montreal Canadiens put their perfect record on the line versus the Vancouver Canucks Tuesday.
The red hot Montreal Canadiens shoot for their 10th consecutive victory when they visit Vancouver on Tuesday night. The Canadiens racked up victory number nine in a row with a 5-3 decision against Toronto on Sunday night. Even though the offense had a big night goalie Carey Price might have been the deciding factor with a hefty 49 save performance to give the Habs their 9th straight win. The balanced attack saw David Desharnais, Lars Eller, Max Pacioretty, PK Subban and Brendan Gallagher score to give Price plenty of support. The Maple Leafs received goals from James van Riemsdyk, Morgan Reilly and Leo Komarov but a 22 stop effort from Jonathan Bernier wasn’t good enough.
