Canadiens Game Day: Habs Look To Right the Ship in Dallas

The Montreal Canadiens have been going through a rough patch lately.

Since roaring out to a 12-5-1 record over their first 18 games, the Canadiens have struggled to maintain a .500 record since, going 7-7-1 over 15 games. The Habs' latest setback was a 3-2 loss at the hands of the Colorado Avalanche on Sunday in Denver, with the game marking the first of seven on a grueling road trip.

The Habs roll into Dallas tonight to take on the Stars, winners of two straight including a 4-3 overtime victory over the Red Wings on Sunday. To say that the Stars are hot right now would be an understatement as they have gone 10-2-2 in their last 14 games to roar to the top of the Western Conference standings.

The Stars currently have 43 points in the standings, one back of Detroit for first overall in the West. They are also currently tied for third overall in the league with the Atlanta Thrashers.

Yes, you read that right, the Thrashers.

The Stars offense is led by the brilliant efforts of Brad Richards. His 38 points (15G, 23A) tie him for sixth overall in league scoring with Daniel Sedin and Alexander Ovechkin, one point back of Pavel Datsyuk and Corey Perry.
