Montreal Hosts the Penguins

(Sports Network) - The red-hot Pittsburgh Penguins will try to extend their season-high winning streak to seven games this afternoon, when they visit the Montreal Canadiens at the Bell Centre.

Pittsburgh's latest triumph came on Saturday against the visiting Washington Capitals. Ronald Petrovicky scored the game-winning goal and Marc-Andre Fleury stopped all 30 shots faced as the Penguins defeated the Caps, 2-0, at Mellon Arena.

Fleury was brilliant in the contest, including making 13 saves in the final period. Rookie center Jordan Staal added an empty-net tally in the win.

Penguins phenom Sidney Crosby, who leads the NHL with 82 points, was kept off the scoresheet for the first time in nine games.

The Penguins have taken eight of their last nine and are now tied for sixth in the Eastern Conference standings with Tampa Bay. Pittsburgh is just two points behind fifth-place Montreal in the East.

Pittsburgh is 11-9-4 as the away team this year, but has won its last two tests on the road.

Wow. It's getting old saying it's the refs that are screwing the game but it really is. The habs had ZERO PP's and half of the penalties that were given to the habs shouldn't have been a penalty. The refs are ruining hockey.

Souray strikes in OT as Habs ice Penguins

Canadian Press
2/4/2007 4:50:57 PM


MONTREAL (CP) - Sheldon Souray scored 2:01 into overtime on Sunday afternoon as the Montreal Canadiens ended the Pittsburgh Penguins' six-game winning streak with a 4-3 victory.

Tomas Plekanec, who scored Montreal's first two goals, snatched the puck away from Penguins' star Sidney Crosby inside the Canadiens' blue-line and went in on a two-on-one. He slipped the puck to Souray for a blast that gave Marc-Andre Fleury no chance.

Mark Streit also scored for Montreal (29-19-6), which moved one point ahead of Ottawa for fourth in the Eastern Conference, each with 54 games played.

Trailing 2-1 going into the third period, Montreal scored on its first two power plays of the game as Plekanec got his second of the match at 1:10 and Streit put the Canadiens ahead at 5:59.

But Michel Ouellet went to the net to tip in Ryan Whitney's pass on a power play to send the game into overtime at 17:26.

Crosby set up the 18th goal by rookie Jordan Staal and another by Whitney for Pittsburgh (26-18-8), which despite the loss extended its run of games with at least one point to 10.

Plekanec and Souray each had three points for Montreal. Plekanec has five goals in the last seven games, while Streit has three in his last four.

After a wild and sometimes nasty 5-4 shootout win by Pittsburgh on Thursday, the fast-paced rematch had good hitting and some minor shoving, but no incidents.

Canadiens coach Guy Carbonneau, angry with his team's listless play of late, scratched struggling wingers Sergei Samsonov and Alexander Perezhogin.

He put captain Saku Koivu on the checking line, going head-to-head with Crosby, and dumped Michael Ryder to the fourth line.

The changes went fine early, but the Canadiens encountered penalty trouble and Staal opened the scoring during a two-man advantage at 11:33. Montreal was handed the first six minors of the game.
