KEYS TO VICTORY
Looking to square their Eastern Conference Quarterfinals series with the Senators at one game apiece, the Canadiens play host to Paul MacLean’s squad on Friday night at the Bell Centre.

The Habs dropped a 4-2 decision to the Senators in the series-opener on Thursday night, despite firing 50 shots at goaltender Craig Anderson. Rene Bourque and Brendan Gallagher tallied for the Canadiens, while Carey Price stopped 27 of 31 shots directed his way by Ottawa.

Erik Karlsson, Jakob Silfverberg, Marc Methot and Guillaume Latendresse scored for the Senators, as Ottawa claimed the first post-season tilt between the two franchises in modern NHL history.

Over the course of their latest campaign, the Canadiens have faced off against the Senators twice in the second half back-to-back games, with each club nabbing the win once under those circumstances.
The Ottawa blue-liner, Erik Karlsson, logged two points in his first game of the series on Thursday night, scoring his team’s opening goal and then adding an assist.
 
  • Lars Eller was released from hospital and returned home on Friday morning. Eller is resting after suffering a concussion and facial fractures in Game One, Thursday night.
  • Michel Therrien confirmed that Max Pacioretty and Brian Gionta are both out for Game 2 of the series on Friday night at the Bell Centre with upper-body injuries. Therrien indicated that he will reveal which players will be taking Pacioretty and Gionta’s spots in the lineup before puck drop. Gabriel Dumont, Jeff Halpern and Colby Armstrong will all take part in Friday night's game.
  • Defenseman P.K. Subban has earned five points in his last six playoff appearances.
  • Goaltender Craig Anderson turned aside 48 shots over in the opening game of the series between the Habs and Sens.
  • Defenseman Erik Karlsson, was the most used player in Game 1, logging a total of 29:11 of ice-time. He posted a goal and an assist, finishing his night with a plus-3 differential.
"It’s a best-of-seven series. The only thing we can control is the effort we put in and I think we put in an excellent effort in Game 1. That’s how we want to continue playing."
