Canadiens visit streaking Penguins

(Sports Network) - The red-hot Pittsburgh Penguins take aim at a fifth consecutive victory as they continue a homestand tonight with a showdown against the Montreal Canadiens from Mellon Arena.

Catch the game live on TSN at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt.

Pittsburgh's formidable offense was the catalyst to the club's first three wins during this streak, but goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury was the star of the Penguins' most recent triumph. The former No. 1 overall pick stopped all 32 shots he faced to lead Pittsburgh to a 3-0 decision over Florida on Tuesday.

Michel Ouellet, Dominic Moore and Ryan Whitney had the goals for the Penguins, who won for the sixth time in seven outings. Ouellet also had an assist on the evening.

Whitney's goal extended his personal scoring streak to eight games, in which he has recorded two goals and nine assists. NHL scoring leader Sidney Crosby assisted on Whitney's tally has now notched a point in seven straight contests. The 19-year-old phenom has compiled 14 points (4 goals, 10 assists) over that span.

Tuesday's victory began a three-game homestand for Pittsburgh, which concludes the stretch Saturday against Washington. The Pens are 13-8-4 at Mellon Arena this season and have won three in a row as the host.

The last time Pittsburgh reeled off four straight wins was from December 9-15. That streak was broken by the Canadiens, who dealt the Penguins a 6-3 defeat in Montreal on December 16.

I'm looking forward to this one, it should be a really good game. The Pens are a pretty good team at home and Montreal was .500 on the road in January. The Canadiens can jump over Ottawa for fourth in the conference with a win tonight while the Sens have the night off.

This game is crazy. I've never seen such bad penalty calls in my life. First of all Crosby is a baby; Lapierre didn't even touch him and he falls down and flops around on the ice like a seal. And to top it off a penguin hits our Captain and there is NO penalty call, Souray gives the guy what he deserves and then Souray gets a 7 Minute penalty (wtf) and now he's out of the game.

Horrible job by the referees.

3-2 Shittsburgh- End of the 2nd

Pens win in a SO.

Habs played really good considering the refs pretty much handed the game to the Pens.

Penguins won. That will hurt the Leafs a bit in the plyoff hunt, but not too much.

Motreal made too many mistakes in this game though. I think they sould have won.

Really? What mistakes did they make?
Koivu taking evening up the penalty n the 3rd.

And they gave up a ton of odd-man rushes in the 3rd (as did Pittsburgh of course)

I also think they should have put in Huet in the shootout. By the way Aebischer was playing, I already knew Montreal was going to lose when thye got there.

On whole though, I guess it would be fair to blame the refs for this one. They really stunk it up.
