Saturday, November 4th (All times eastern)

New Jersey Devils (6-5-1) at Montreal Canadiens (7-2-3), 7 p.m.

(Sports Network) - The Montreal Canadiens will aim for their first three-game winning streak of the season when they host the New Jersey Devils tonight at the Bell Centre.

The Canadiens defeated Ottawa at home on Halloween night and then posted a victory at Carolina on Thursday.

The Habs blanked the defending Stanley Cup champion Hurricanes, 4-0. Cristobal Huet made 31 saves for his 12th career shutout and Montreal scored three special teams goals at RBC Center.

Michael Komisarek and Tomas Plekanec both notched short-handed tallies while Saku Koivu scored on the power play for Montreal, which has earned at least one point in each of its last four games (3-0-1).

Mike Johnson also scored in the victory.

The Devils are coming off Thursday's home loss to the Islanders. Jason Blake tallied a goal and two assists to lift New York past New Jersey, 5-2.

Travis Zajac and Zach Parise scored while Martin Brodeur stopped 22-of-27 shots for the Devils, who had a two-game winning streak snapped.

Thursday's loss spoiled the Devils' bid to go a perfect 3-0 on their homestand. New Jersey is just 2-4-0 on the road this season.

The Devils swept four meetings against Montreal last season.
