Struggling Canadiens host Penguins

Pittsburgh (24-22-5) at Montreal (28-16-6), 7:30 p.m. EST

MONTREAL (Ticker) -- The Montreal Canadiens and Pittsburgh

Penguins came into the season with high expectations. Both

clubs have disappointed.

Pittsburgh hopes to avoid a third straight loss when it visits

Montreal on Tuesday.

The Penguins are coming off a pair of one-goal defeats and have

just one win in their last seven road games.

Pittsburgh dropped a 4-3 overtime contest to New Jersey on

Friday and a 5-4 setback to Toronto on Saturday. Evgeni Malkin

notched a goal and an assist in both contests.

Montreal has lost five of its last six games, including a 3-1

setback to rival Boston on Sunday. The loss dropped the

Canadiens 18 points behind the Bruins.

Robert Lang scored the lone goal for the Canadiens, who had

their five-game home winning streak snapped in the process.

Lang later left with an apparent leg injury.

Montreal won the first meeting, 3-2, at Pittsburgh on December

27.
