NHL Preview from The Sports Network



Saturday, November 25th (All times eastern)

Philadelphia Flyers (6-14-3) at Montreal Canadiens (13-5-3), 7 p.m.

(Sports Network) - The Montreal Canadiens shoot for their fourth consecutive win tonight when they welcome the Philadelphia Flyers to the Bell Centre.

On Friday the Habs notched an improbable 2-1 overtime win over the Buffalo Sabres at HSBC Arena. Sheldon Souray netted the game-winner with under one second remaining in overtime to secure the two points.

Saku Koivu added a goal and an assist, and netminder Cristobal Huet stopped 29-of-30 shots to pick up his eighth win of the season (8-2-2).

The Canadiens scored the game's final two goals, as Koivu's marker with 11:39 left in regulation tied things at 1-1.

Montreal, which goes from facing the best team in the Eastern Conference to taking on the worst, will host Florida on Tuesday.

Philadelphia, meanwhile, is coming off Friday's 3-2 win over Columbus in a matinee at the Wachovia Center. Mike Richards scored his first goal of the season early in the third period, breaking a 2-2 deadlock.

The Flyers, who faced former head coach Ken Hitchcock, squandered two one-goal leads before taking an advantage for good, as Peter Forsberg and Freddy Meyer tallied as well.

Antero Niittymaki finished with 39 saves for the Flyers, who ended a two-game losing streak.

Forsberg returned to the lineup after missing one game with a back injury.

Philadelphia will host Nashville on Wednesday.

Montreal topped Philly, 3-1, on October 11 at the Wachovia Center and has won four of the last five meetings.

The Flyers have lost in their last two trips to the Bell Centre.
