The Canadiens are running on a five-game losing streak in the young season following a 5-2 decision to the Sharks in Northern California. Jonathan Drouin and Shea Weber netted once each.
Coach Claude Julien needs some serious gameplay changes if wants to get his team out of this plight. Following Tuesday night’s loss, when Carey Price struggle at the goal surrendering four goals on 34 shots Julien has yet to decide on whom to go with against the Kings. That implies Al Montoya could be making his first start of the season on Wednesday night.
As of the Kings, they are to a franchise-best start at 4-0-1 and look strong headed for a playoff spot with John Stevens at the helm as the new coach. A strong defensive game that has allowed goals while the offense capitalized with 13 goals thus far. They are coming off a 3-2 win over the New York Islanders.
Defenseman Drew Doughty, center Anze Kopitar (four goals, eight points) and winger Dustin Brown (four goals, seven points) are the star power in the squad.
The Kings after almost 3 days of rest are set for a comfortable victory over the Canadiens, who will be playing their the second match in less than 24 hours.
