Canadiens vs. Canucks All time Record

The Vancouver Canucks arrived in the NHL in 1970-71 and, as is often the case with new franchises, struggled to find success, going 24-26-8 in their debut season.

A pair of those losses came courtesy of the Canadiens, who won 6-3 in the first-ever meeting between the two teams on October 31, 1970 at the Forum, and beat them 4-3 in the Habs’ first visit to Vancouver on December 18, 1970.

The Canadiens and Canucks, the latter Stanley Cup finalists in 1981-82 and 1993-94, have met just once in the playoffs. In 1975, Montreal eliminated Vancouver from the postseason in five games in the quarterfinals.

Halak's heroics earn another start

VANCOUVER – Jaroslav Halak's gain is Carey Price's loss tomorrow night.

Head coach Guy Carbonneau has tipped Halak, the author of a 46-save, career-best performance Friday vs. the Colorado Avalanche, as his starting netminder for Sunday night's game against the Vancouver Canucks.

It spoils the homecoming of British Columbian Carey Price, who like fellow B.C. natives Josh Gorges and Ryan O'Byrne has a flood of family and friends coming to the game.

Montreal is ice cold while the Canucks are heating up. We still have too many injuries and with Plekanec injured, I'm expecting a blow-out tonight. Canucks take this one 5-1 and I suffer the razzing of my friends and co-workers tomorrow. :)

On another note, I'd really like to know what's going through Price's mind right now not getting the start in Vancouver where friends and family will have made the trip. I know that he hasn't been sharp since the All-Star break and I also know that Halak stood on his head in Colorado, but one has to wonder what Price is thinking...
I too expect a Canucks win. 5-2. I would expect that if Carbo is going to have the goalies compete to play, that Price will wise up and be back to his superstar form soon enough.
