KEY TO VICTORY
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.”
- BRENDAN GALLAGHER
