The Canadiens came up against an in-form Jacob Markstrom
After a weekend in which the team collected two points out of a possible four, the Canadiens were back in action tonight. For the occasion, it faced the Calgary Flames.

This was Sean Monahan’s second game against his former team.

Here’s the Montreal line-up.

And the Flames’:

Before the game, the home team honoured Pierre Turgeon, who played 104 games in Montreal.

A rather ordinary ceremony, just like the presentation of the players at the start of the season…

Despite numerous shots from both sides, neither team managed to score in the first period.

In the second period, Nazem Kadri finally opened the scoring with a fine individual play.

But exactly 17 seconds later, Gustav Lindstrom, in front of his family, scored his first goal for the Canadiens.

Juraj Slafkovsky finally got his name on the score sheet.

Moments later, Elias Lindholm’s skate hit Kaiden Guhle in the face.

More fear than harm, though.

Before the end of the period, Connor Zary, in his sixth NHL game, scored his third goal.

What a pass from Rasmus Andersson on the sequence!

Calgary thought they had given themselves a two-goal lead early in the third period, but a challenge from Martin St-Louis brought the goal back.

Still 2-1 to the visitors at that point.

In the third period, the coach decided to reunite Cole Caufield and Nick Suzuki. The two had been separated five days ago and hadn’t enjoyed any 5-on-5 playing time together since.

But their reunion changed nothing in the end, as the Flames survived repeated attacks.

Final score: 2-1 Flames.

Jacob Markstrom was very good in his team’s victory, stopping 33 of 34 shots.

Montreal next plays the Golden Knights in Montreal on Thursday.


– New information on the Kings in Quebec City.

– Absentees were part of the game.

– Let’s celebrate.

– Josh Anderson really can’t buy a goal. He must be jealous of his teammate, Lindstrom.

– Can’t say he’s not trying.
