Joel Armia was sent down to the Laval Rocket earlier today, making room for Gustav Lindström to be recalled by the big club.
However, Lindström is not participating in the game.
Casey DeSmith was facing his “former” team, as he squared off against Jake Allen in net.
Not much happened in the first twenty minutes, but in the second period, the Canucks’ engine really got fired up, and it wasn’t pretty to watch.
It’s unfortunate that it happened to Caufield every time.
It’s the risk of being a sniper.
The Canadiens score at least one power play goal in 12 out of 15 games this season.

The next game for the Montreal Canadiens will take place next Tuesday, November 14, where Martin St. Louis’s team will host the Calgary Flames at Bell Centre.
– Defenseman Filip Hronek earned an assist in a tenth consecutive game. He still hasn’t scored a goal, but he’s making a mark with 16 assists this year, including 13 in his last 10 games. Quinn Hughes meanwhile, earned his 18th assist of the season, tying him with his teammate, Elias Pettersson. Clearly, Vancouver’s offense is present in 2023-2024 and is causing concern for many teams across the NHL.
