The Canadiens haven’t won against the Sharks at home since 2015

Last night, the Canadiens didn’t look good in Philadelphia. They got away with it thanks to a Cayden Primeau who was motivated by… I don’t know what (playing at home, the three-way battle in front of the net, etc.), which resulted in a point in the standings.

But otherwise, it didn’t go so well.

Theoretically, if the guys lacked legs yesterday, you have to wonder what they’ll be like today. After all, even if the club doesn’t train this morning, the fact remains that the guys travelled after the game against the Flyers…

But the good news is that Samuel Montembeault didn’t travel. He stayed in Montreal and had a night’s sleep in his own bed, ready for tonight’s game.

That’s a big advantage.

Another big advantage? The Habs take on the Sharks, a bad club that has lost its last 12 regular-season games. The club gave up 54 goals and scored only 17 during that period.

Even the coach isn’t sure how to get out of this one.

But since life isn’t simple, it’s important to remember that the Sharks are rested (their 7-1 loss in Toronto took place on Tuesday, giving the club time to recharge its batteries), but more importantly…

That the Sharks have the Canadiens’ number at the Bell Centre.

In fact, the Sharks have won seven straight games at the Bell Centre. The Habs last won at home against San Jose on March 21, 2015.

Let’s also remember that earlier this season, while the Habs were in California, Martin St-Louis’ men needed the shootout to give Cayden Primeau the W.

Not an ideal situation.

Can Samuel Montembeault measure up to the NHL’s worst club? After all, the Habs don’t want to be the club that sets the Sharks straight.

Let’s not forget that Mike Hoffman’s Sharks began the season with 11 straight losses.
