(Sports Network) - The Montreal Canadiens conclude a three-game road trip tonight in Detroit, where the Habs will attempt to rebound from one of their worst losses of the season when they take on the Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena.

After opening the swing with a victory in Philadelphia on Thursday, Montreal yielded a season-high goal total in Saturday's 8-3 shellacking at the hands of the rival Ottawa Senators.

Cristobal Huet, who was named to the Eastern Conference All-Star squad on Saturday, allowed six Ottawa goals on 25 shots before being replaced by David Aebischer early in the second period.

Chris Higgins, Craig Rivet and Sheldon Souray all had goals for the Canadiens, who have lost six of their last nine games and now own only a one-point edge on the Senators for second place in the Northeast Division.

Detroit, meanwhile, has won three in a row and kicked off a three-game homestand in fine fashion on Saturday. Jason Williams netted a pair of goals and Henrik Zetterberg finished with three assists to power the Red Wings to a 6-3 victory over slumping Chicago.

Robert Lang added a goal and an assist for Detroit, which also received two helpers each from Nicklas Lidstrom, Pavel Datsyuk and Mikael Samuelsson. Backup goaltender Chris Osgood stopped 33 shots to notch his fifth win of the campaign.

This game against montreal is long over due. hockey fans here in detroit are getting tired of seeing teams like columbus and nashville.detroit needs to play against the other original 6 teams more often.
Mike Babcock was saying that before the game that Detroit fans and Montreal fans always look forward to seeing the two teams play. I would love to see Detroit play Montreal like 4 times a year so each city can see them play twice at least. Bettman why have you ruined every part of the NHL and now with the jersey changes are making it even worse?
