PHI (6-5-1) @ MTL (9-1-1)

The Canadiens will look to get back to their winning ways on Saturday night at the Bell Centre.

On Friday, the Habs suffered their first regulation loss of the season, dropping a 10-0 decision in Columbus. It was the first time since December 2, 1995 that the Canadiens had allowed 10 goals in a game.

Carey Price will be back between the pipes on Saturday for the second game of this weekend's back-to-back set, as Al Montoya got the start on Friday. In his previous outing, Price shutout the Vancouver Canucks 3-0 on Wednesday.

He was also solid in the Habs' first meeting with the Flyers this season, making 31 saves in a 3-1 win on October 24. Alexander Radulov for his part, scored a goal and picked up two assists in the effort.

The Canadiens did not practice on Saturday after arriving in Montreal early in the morning. No lineup changes have been announced against the Flyers as of yet.

At the other end of the ice, the Habs face a Philly team which has won three in a row, including come-from-behind wins in its last two.

The Flyers, however, have not won in Montreal since April 15, 2013, going 0-3-2 since then.

Game time is scheduled for 7:00 p.m., and will be broadcast on CITY and TVA Sports.
