Penguins at Canadiens: Five things to know

Post by encarnacion » Mon Apr 16, 2018 12:43 am

The Canadiens open their home schedule Tuesday night against the Stanley Cup-champion Pittsburgh Penguins . Here are five things you should know about the matchupNo Sidney on the horizon If you bought tickets a while back hoping to see Sidney Crosby, youre out of luck. The MVP of last year playoffs and the recent World Cup of Hockey is making progress as he recovers from a concussion https://www.penguinsfansteamstore.com/B ... t_Jersey-6, but he has yet to practise with his teammates.A family affair for Sergachev Rookie defenceman Mikhail Sergachev returns to the lineup and hell have his own rooting section. His parents are flying in from Moscow to watch the game. Sergachev was a healthy scratch in Ottawa Saturday and hell face a major against the speedy Penguins. Greg Pateryn will watch from the press box as Sergachev lines up next to Alexei Emelin.A return for Condon Penguins coach Mike Sullivan isnt tipping his hand, but we could see an interesting matchup in goal with Al Montoya facing Mike Condon. Marc-Andreacute; Fleury started Monday night against Colorado and that opens up the possibility of Condon facing the Canadiens. Condon replaced the injured Carey Price as the Montreal starter last season, but lost the backup job to Montoya. The Canadiens were hoping to keep Condon, but the Penguins claimed him on waivers last week.Speaking of Montoya The backup goaltender will be making his third consecutive start. He has a 1-0-1 record and he has given the Canadiens a chance to win with a 1.92 goals-against average and .942 save percentage. Montoya said he has had his ups and downs in his previous starts against the Penguins. He has a 2-4-1 record with a 3.83 goals-against average.Busy schedule for Penguins The Canadiens get a bit of a break because Pittsburgh will be playing the second half of a back-to-back setthe Penguins were home to Colorado Monday nightand will be playing its fourth game in six nights. Said coach Sullivan I dont think anyone likes to play four games in six nights Tom Barrasso Jersey, but it the nature of the game.
