Habs Have Owned Rangers Lately

Montreal Canadiens Max Pacioretty

The Montreal Canadiens have been road warriors so far in the young NHL season and will get their first opportunity to play in front of their hometown fans when the New York Rangers invade the Bell Centre Thursday evening. The Habs, who have collected four straight victories away from home, historically enjoy playing the Blueshirts, particularly in La Belle Province.
