DALLAS - The Canadiens closed out their three-game road trip with a 4-1 loss to the Stars on Saturday night.
Before things officially got underway at the American Airlines Center, Jonathan Drouin made one boy the happiest youngster on the planet.
During the pregame warmup, the 24-year-old forward was delighted to grant his wish.
As per usual on the road, Habs fans aplenty were present to cheer on their beloved squad.
We all know that Canadiens supporters travel best!
It was a stalemate early before former Habs forward Alexander Radulov opened the scoring for Dallas with a power play goal.
Radulov's marker came at the 15:24 mark of the first period.
Dallas outshot Montreal by a 14-13 margin after 20 minutes.
There was only one goal to report in the second period. Unfortunately, it was Dallas that lit the lamp.
Right-winger Denis Gurianov beat Carey Price on a penalty shot with 1:11 remaining before the intermission.
Price did, however, make 13 saves during the middle frame alone to keep the Canadiens within striking distance.
