Canadiens looking to end struggles against Canucks

Montreal (30-20-6) at Vancouver (26-21-8), 10:00 pm EST

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- The Montreal Canadiens

will try to snap a 10-game winless streak to the Vancouver

Canucks on Sunday in their first meeting in over two years.

The Canadiens have not defeated the Canucks since November 30,

2003, posting an 0-8-2 record against Vancouver. In their last

meeting on January 16, 2007, the Canucks cruised to a 4-0

victory over Montreal.

Vancouver had a four-game winning streak snapped in its last

contest, suffering a 2-1 setback to the Dallas Stars. The

Canucks will start a four-game homestand after this visit to

Montreal.

Jaroslav Halak made a career-high 46 saves as the Canadiens

avoided a season-worst fifth consecutive loss with a 4-2 triumph

over the Colorado Avalanche on Friday.

Halak may have earned himself another start over struggling

starter Carey Price, who was born in Vancouver.

Before Halak's impressive performance, Montreal had lost nine of

its previous 11 contests.
