Two teams going in opposite directions will meet Tuesday at Bell Centre when the Ottawa Senators bring their three-game winning streak into town to face the Montreal Canadiens Jack Roslovic Jersey Womens , who have lost six of their past seven games (1-4-2).Despite their recent struggles, the Canadiens (12-10-5) owned the second wild-card position in the Eastern Conference heading into games Monday.The rebuilding Senators (12-12-3) have been riding some improved defense during their winning streak to pull within two points of the Canadiens in the standings. The Senators, who have allowed the most goals in the NHL (109), have given up five goals in their past three games and just two in their past two games.Article continues below ...“At the start of the year I knew we were not going to be good defensively,” Senators coach Guy Boucher said Monday, “no matter how much time we would have spent on it because of personnel, age, experience and so on. You need to have something to hang your hat on and have something that makes you feel good.”Boucher said the team instead concentrated on scoring goals (which has worked, the Senators have scored 98 goals, third most in the NHL).“We bet on the right thing Scott Mayfield Jersey Womens ,” Boucher said. “The offense was there. The defensive part of the game is extremely dependent on the experience part. We knew it would take a lot of time for the young guys to get that experience.”Boucher said the players have made a commitment collectively to improve defensively.“Right now there’s a huge commitment,” he said.The Senators are coming off a 3-0 win against the New York Rangers on Thursday and a 6-2 win against the San Jose Sharks on Saturday.“We’ve seen ourselves grow in the last two games,” Senators goaltender Craig Anderson said. “The last game against the Rangers, we were outstanding for 60, and (Sunday) again, outstanding for 60 minutes. We’re starting to string some momentum together, and playing in the right direction, playing the right way, and I think our guys are getting rewarded, too. We scored (six) goals.”The Canadiens are coming off a 3-1 loss to the Sharks on Sunday at Bell Centre. The Canadiens got behind early to the Sharks Max Domi Jersey Womens , 2-0, and never recovered.“We’re still a young team that’s still trying to improve,” Canadiens coach Claude Julien said on montrealcanadiens.com. “Learning to win is part of the development for a young team. You have to learn from these kinds of games, even if I found that we played well in the second and third periods.“We can’t start games like that and think we are going to win.”“Those two goals at the start hurt us,” Canadiens forward Phillip Danault told the team’s website. “They cost us the game. … We got some momentum back in the third period, but it wasn’t enough.”This will be the second game of the season between the Canadiens and the Senators and the first of three in a stretch of 12 days. After the game Tuesday, they meet in Ottawa on Thursday and back at Bell Centre Dec. 15.The Senators twice overcame two-goal deficits to win 4-3 in overtime in their first meeting Oct. 20 in Ottawa.Defenseman Justin Falk, signed as a free agent by the Senators on Friday, is expected to play his second game after a strong debut Saturday.

NEWARK, N.J. — The Carolina Hurricanes went into the Christmas break feeling good about themselves after a win over the Boston Bruins on Dec. 22. The New Jersey Devils made their return to work a triumphant one Thursday by beating the Bruins.Now the task for two of the teams on the outside looking in of the Eastern Conference’s playoff picture is to figure out how to play all the time like they did against the Bruins.The Devils and Hurricanes will each be looking to build some consistency Saturday afternoon Richard Panik Jersey , when New Jersey hosts Carolina at the Prudential Center.Article continues below ...Both teams resumed play Thursday, when the Devils defeated the host Bruins, 5-2, and the visiting Hurricanes fell to the Washington Capitals, 3-1.The Devils (13-16-7) are looking to win consecutive games for the first time since Nov. 13-15 and only the second time since opening the campaign with four straight victories. If New Jersey is to build a winning streak, it will require the type of formula head coach John Hynes saw on display against the Bruins.“Our recipe to be good is we got a great performance in goal, our special teams were both very good and we had a real detailed, gritty, cohesive, systematic 5-on-5 game http://www.officialsabres.com/authentic-...hel-jersey ,” Hynes said following practice Friday. “And that’s what we need to do to win.”The Hurricanes (15-16-5) have also struggled to string together victories. Carolina is 4-8-2 since its most recent set of back-to-back wins and has just three winning streaks all season.On Thursday, the Hurricanes failed to build on their pre-break win over the Bruins in a sluggish loss to the defending Stanley Cup champion Capitals. Carolina recorded just eight shots apiece in the first and second periods and went 0-for-4 on the power play.“I think we just weren’t ready to go like we needed to be,” Hurricanes head coach Rod Brind’Amour told reporters following the game. “That’s on me. I saw it and talked about it, but I should have done something different. I don’t know what, but we were not ready to go like we needed to be against that team at this time of the year.”MacKenzie Blackwood and Petr Mrazek, each of whom started at goalie for the Devils and Hurricanes on Thursday, are likely to be in net again Saturday for their respective teams.Blackwood, a 22-year-old rookie, earned his first NHL win Thursday, when he made 40 saves. Blackwood http://www.officialflames.com/authentic-...han-jersey , who has made four appearances and two starts, has never faced the Hurricanes.Mrazek took the loss Thursday after stopping 30 shots against the Capitals. He is 4-1-0 in six career appearances against the Devils.A pair of key Devils players, left wingers Taylor Hall and Marcus Johansson, will miss Saturday’s game. Hall didn’t play Thursday due to a lower body injury while Johansson, who is on injured reserve, has been sidelined the previous two games due to an upper body injury.Hurricanes defenseman Hayden Fleury, who hasn’t played since Dec. 13 due to a concussion, skated with his teammates Friday. His availability for Saturday is uncertain. Carolina may also be without center Jordan Staal, who was out the previous two games with an upper body injury.
