David Desharnais recorded five points in six games against the Senators in 2011-12.
The Canadiens will hit the ice for their second game within 24 hours on Wednesday night when they pay a visit to the nation’s capital to take on the Ottawa Senators.

Michel Therrien’s team will be gunning for a fifth-consecutive victory after downing the Winnipeg Jets Tuesday night at the Bell Centre by a score of 4-3. Brendan Gallagher, Raphael Diaz and Andrei Markov each picked up two points in the win. Helping to level the playing field, the Senators were also in action Tuesday night, logging a win of their own by toppling the visiting Washington Capitals 3-2.

The Habs will look to stay hot in Ottawa, hoping the success they enjoyed last year against the Senators will carry over into the 2012-13 season. Having netted wins in four of their six games against the Sens in their last campaign, the Montreal squad still managed to extract a point from their two losses, taking the game into a shootout on both occasions.
Daniel Alfredsson has logged a total of 103 points in 85 career-games against the Canadiens.
  • Peter Budaj will step into the crease for his first game of the season.
  • Andrei Markov will look to pick up a point for a sixth consecutive game.
  • Brendan Gallagher will look to light the lamp for a third consecutive game.
  • P.K. Subban will rejoin his teammates in Ottawa, but won’t be inserted into the lineup for Wednesday night’s match.
  • Jason Spezza’s presence in Wednesday night’s game remains uncertain after the Sens forward missed Tuesday’s match with a back injury. 
  • Craig Anderson will get the start for the Sens on Wednesday night, looking to build on his league-leading .967 save percentage and 0.98 goals-against average. 
  • Milan Michalek will look to pick up a point for a seventh consecutive game. 
“As a team we’re having a lot of fun coming to the rink every day and we enjoy being around each other.”

Number of consecutive games stretching back to December 2010 in which the Habs haven’t lost to the Sens in regulation time.
