Habs, Senators carry momentum into matchup

Winners of three of their past four games, the Montreal Canadiens will look to continue their good form when they host the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday night.

The Canadiens are coming off one of their most impressive performances of the season, a 4-1 road victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday. Down 1-0 after the first 32 minutes, Montreal scored four unanswered goals to hand the Penguins their first regulation loss in Pittsburgh since Oct. 19.

After an eight-game losing streak (0-5-3), Montreal now appears to be back on track thanks to a team-wide defensive improvement. The Canadiens have allowed only seven goals over their past four games, and their penalty killers have conceded just one goal from their opponents' past 17 chances with the man advantage.
