The Canadiens welcome the Ottawa Senators to the Bell Centre on Tuesday night.

With the MLS Eastern Conference Final showdown between the Montreal Impact and Toronto FC being shown on RDS, the Canadiens game will be broadcast on RDS2 beginning at 7:30 p.m. RDS2 will be made available to RDS subscribers for the contest.

On Saturday night, the Canadiens downed the Toronto Maple Leafs 2-1 at the Bell Centre, picking up their 12th straight win over their Original Six rivals.

Paul Byron and Alex Galchenyuk each recorded their seventh goals of the season, joining Shea Weber atop the Canadiens' goal-scoring list. 

Carey Price made 31 saves to register his 11th win of the season. He is still undefeated in regulation time on the year.

Price should be between the pipes against the Senators, who've scored just five goals in their last four games. They've strung together a 1-2-1 record during that span. On Saturday, Jean-Gabriel Pageau scored the lone goal for Ottawa in a 4-1 loss to the Florida Panthers.

Erik Karlsson currently leads the Senators with 14 points (3g - 11a). Kyle Turris, meanwhile, leads Guy Boucher's contingent with eight goals.

Michel Therrien tweaked his lines at practice on Monday, so we could be seeing some new combinations on Tuesday night. Torrey Mitchell might be playing on a line with Max Pacioretty and Andrew Shaw, while Tomas Plekanec could be featured alongside Phillip Danault and Brendan Gallagher.

In their second game of the season back on October 15, the Canadiens dropped a 3-2 shootout decision to the Senators in Ottawa.
