Preview: Blue Jackets at Canadiens

Montreal had won eight straight during a 9-0-1 start before a 10-0 bludgeoning in Columbus 12 months ago, matching the biggest defeat in franchise history. The Canadiens stumbled out of the gate this season, going 1-6-1 in their first eight games, but they have turned things around by winning four of their last five. The Blue Jackets halted a four-game skid with a 2-1 shootout victory in Detroit on Saturday night, but they are 4-0-1 in their last five against Montreal. Columbus, which set a club record with the 10-goal outburst against the Canadiens last November. has scored just one regulation goal in each of the past three games and owns the league’s worst power play.<BR><BR><STRONG>TV:</STRONG> 7:30 p.m. ET, FSN Ohio (Columbus), RDS, TSN2 (Montreal)
