CANADIENS @ SENATORS – Game #3 (Montreal leads series 2-0)

The Canadiens will be looking to widen their first round lead as the series shifts to Ottawa on Sunday night.

The Habs took advantage of home ice in the first two games of the series, going up 2-0 over the Sens thanks to a 3-2 overtime win on Friday night at the Bell Centre.

BROSSARD – Given the Senators’ penchant for defying the odds, Michel Therrien’s troops aren’t about to let their collective guard down as the series shifts to the nation’s capital.

Despite leading their first-round series 2-0 over Ottawa, the Canadiens made it clear on Saturday afternoon at the Bell Sports Complex that taking anything for granted against Dave Cameron’s contingent would be a major – and potentially costly – mistake.

1 – STREAKY FRIDAY: With a rare lack of Saturday night dates penciled in on their first-round schedule, the Habs will have to count on a less familiar day of the week when it comes to Game 2 on Friday night. Although the Canadiens have enjoyed a 13-0-2 home record at the Bell Centre on Saturdays this season, historically, the team has been just as handy at kicking the weekend off with a win when given the chance. In over a century of history, the Canadiens have given new meaning to T.G.I.F, racking up a stellar 12-0-4 record while outscoring…
