Match Up

The Canadiens (17-10-2) return home for the first time this month to host the Canucks (18-8-2) Tuesday night. The game is set to start at 7:30 and can be seen on RDS, Sportsnet East and Sportsnet Pacific.

This is the second and final meeting between the Habs and Canucks this season, the Canadiens took advantage of two late goals the first time these teams met to salvage a point in a 3-2 overtime loss. Henrik and Daniel Sedin combined in OT for the game winning goal.

What to Watch

For the first time this season Max Pacioretty won’t line up next to David Desharnais at the start of the this game. Instead, Alex Galchenyuk will center the top line, a position many Habs fans expect the 20-year old to fill for many seasons to come. Galchenyuk has six goals and 18 points on the season, putting him behind just Pacioretty and Tomas Plekanec for the team lead at 20.

The twins are once against leading the Canucks in scoring, but newcomeners Radim Vrbata and Nick Bonino have been pitching in regularly as well. Vrbata with 12 goals and 23 points in 26 games is on pace for a career year, his previous best is 62 points with the Coyotes.

What’s at Stake

The Canadiens have gone 1-5-1 in their last seven, crashing down the standings the Eastern conference along the way. The Habs are at the start of a five game homestand that will take them close to Christmas. They can recover some ground over the next two weeks and starting the stay off with a win will help their cause.

Who’s Out

Lars Eller (shoulder) is out indefinitely for the Habs. Mike Weaver suffered a concussion Saturday night in Dallas and could miss significant time as well. The good news for Montreal is that Michael Bournival is healthy and expected to make his return to the lineup on Tuesday.

The Canucks are without Dan Hamhuis (lower body) and Zach Kassian (finger). Shawn Matthias (head) missed the last Canukcs last game against the Senators Sunday and may not be ready to play Tuesday either.

What Else

Jean Beliveau has been lying in state at the Bell Centre Sunday and Monday prior to his state funeral on Wednesday. Member’s of the Canadiens from throughout the years have paid their respects to the legend and the current editions of the Habs as well as the Canucks took time Monday to say goodbye to the Canadiens icon. The Montreal Canadiens organization will take the opportunity prior to Tuesday’s game to offer their farewells in a ceremony not to be missed.

The Question Mark

With five home games to play including matches against the Kings and Ducks, how many points would you be satisifed with in this homestand?

Match Up

The Canadiens (8-2-0) wrap up their road trip Thursday night with a visit to Vancouver to face the Canucks (6-3-0). The puck drops at 10:00 and the game airs on RDS and SN360.

This is the first of two meetings between the Habs and Canucks this season, they’ll meet again at the Bell Centre in early December to close out the series. Last year, the Canadiens dominated their two games against Vancouver, scoring 4-1 and 5-2 victories. Max Pacioretty had four goals against the Canucks last season, including a hat trick in the 5-2 home win.

What to Watch

Tom Gilbert picked up his first goal as a Canadien Tuesday night in Calgary, helping the team draw even against the Flames. If Pacioretty was looking for an opportunity to step up his game, there’s no time like the present. The Canadiens leading goal scorer last season has lit the lamp just three times in the first 10 games, leaving him on a pace well shy of the 39 goals he had last year.

The Sedin twins are back in fine form to start this season, Daniel and Henrik each have 11 points the nine games to start the year. Ryan Miller is off to a strong start as well with a 6-1-0 record through is first seven games as a Canuck. The only goalie with more wins than Miller will be occupying the crease 180 feet away. Carey Price leads the league with seven wins.

What’s at Stake

The season keeps moving along and the Habs keep distancing themselves from their competition. Montreal has a three point lead over Tampa and a six point cushion on the Bruins; Long Island, Detroit, Pittsburgh and Ottawa are all four points back or more with varying games on hand. While there is plenty of hockey left to play, the Canadiens have and early edge in the East and can build on their advantage with every point.

Who’s Out

The question of who’s out keeps popping up keeps popping up for the Habs, but it has nothing to do with injuries. Jiri Sekac has been a healthy scratch for the past 4 games, Jarred Tinordi and Nathan Beaulieu have split duties occupying the final defensive spot, while Michael Bournival has yet to see action this season, despite suiting up for 60 games last year.

The Canucks have been without defenseman Ryan Stanton (lower body) for much of the season. He is expected to return to action soon, but will likely miss Thursday’s game.

What Else

The Canadiens have scored just one goals over the two games they’ve played in Alberta already this week. They still have yet to score a power play marker on the road, and they’ve scored just six goals in their last five road games. Three of their four road wins have come by way of shoot out. All that to say, the Habs has had trouble scoring on the road and they’ll need to find a way to correct that as a team if they hope to have continued success.

The Question Mark

The Habs have picked up 16 out of a possible 20 points to start the season, but how many points have they deserved?

The seedings are set for the qualification and medal rounds of the Men’s Olympic hockey tournament and Sweden, United States, Canada and Finland all earned byes and automatic spots in the quarterfinals. Of those four the United States appear to be the most dominant and hottest team right now as they have used a balanced attack, strong defense and solid goaltending to go 2-1-0-0 through the first three games. Right now, it wouldn’t be the least bit surprising if USA and Canada end up in a rematch in the semifinals if all top four seeds were to advance from the quarterfinals. But as history has proved, things don’t always go as planned and upsets can occur. Here’s this scribe’s take on who out of the top four seeds is the most likely to be upset in the quarterfinals.
