Road Team Dominant When Pens, Habs Clash

The Montreal Canadiens and Pittsburgh Penguins renew their rivalry when the two meet at the Bell Centre on Tuesday night. This could be a good sign for Pens backers, as the road team has won six of the past seven between the two clubs – with the lone home win coming in overtime last season.

Shark Bites
  • Al Montoya has a career 3.89 GAA and .888 SV% against the Penguins.
  • The Penguins are 19-1 SU in their last 20 games after a loss.
  • The Canadiens are 11-3 SU in their last 14 games in October.

Many Habs fans were likely anxious when it was announced Carey Price would miss the start of the season due to the flu, but Al Montoya has been lights out. The journeyman goaltender has a 1.92 GAA and a .942 SV% in his two starts for the Canadiens so far this season.

Tuesday marks the Penguins’ first road game this season after they posted a stellar 22-15-4 road record last season. The Pens only visited the Bell Centre once last season, but they picked up a 3-1 victory behind Marc-Andre Fleury’s 33-save performance.
