Flyers-Habs highlights Wednesday's action
The Montreal Canadiens try to start turning things around Wednesday night when the Philadelphia Flyers come to the Bell Centre.
The Montreal Canadiens are off to their worst start in 70 years. They'll try to start turning things around Wednesday night when the Philadelphia Flyers come to the Bell Centre in one of three games on the NHL schedule.

The Canadiens are winless at home after Monday's 2-1 loss to Florida and just 1-5-2 overall, putting them last in the Eastern Conference and 29th in the 30-team League. The Flyers are 5-2-1 after beating Toronto 4-2 at home on Monday, but will be without All-Star defenseman Chris Pronger due to an eye injury sustained against the Leafs.

Both TSN and RDS (HD) will air the game in Canada, beginning at 7:30 p.m. ET.

The other two games both begin at 10 p.m. ET, and both will be played in Western Canada. St. Louis, coming off a 4-2 win at Philadelphia on Saturday, heads across the continent to Vancouver, while Colorado, a 5-4 shootout winner in Chicago on Saturday, tries for its seventh road win in as many games away from Denver when it visits Calgary. The Flames have been off since Saturday's 2-0 home loss to Nashville.
Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
