Canadiens seek fourth straight win

Montreal (21-9-6) at New Jersey (21-12-3), 7:00 p.m. EST

NEWARK, New Jersey (Ticker) -- The Montreal Canadiens look to

complete an unblemished four-game road trip when they visit the

New Jersey Devils on Friday.

Coming off a 2-1 shootout victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning

on Tuesday, the Canadiens currently are riding their longest

winning streak since notching three consecutive triumphs from

November 29-December 4.

They began a season-best, five-game run one night after

suffering a 2-1 shootout loss to the Buffalo Sabres in their

season opener.

With the triumph over Tampa Bay, Montreal has won five of its

last six games. Before that stretch, it dropped four of five.

After this game, the Canadiens will play four of their next six

contests at home.

New Jersey fell to 14-5-1 in its last 20 games with a 4-2

setback at Dallas on Wednesday. Goaltender Scott Clemmensen

continued his brilliant play of late by making 40 saves, but the

Devils' offense was held in check.

Zach Parise, who has recorded 41 points in his last 32 games,

was kept off the scoresheet.
