It didn’t go well the last time the Edmonton Oilers visited the Montreal Canadiens.
Last Tuesday, the Oilers managed just 17 shots on goal in a 4-0 loss to the Habs. They get another crack at the Canadiens Monday night.
“It’s almost a week ago now. We played a good game last game (Friday vs. Calgary),” said defenceman Tyson Barrie.
“You kind of forget about it, but at the same time you’re watching video and picking up on tendencies that made them successful against us.
“We’re disappointed in ourselves in that game but since then we’ve moved on.”
“They’re a pretty solid team, good balance,” said head coach Dave Tippett. “We weren’t very good the other day. We’re looking for a little bit of a rebound game.”
