SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - The Montreal Canadiens and Arizona Coyotes are both desperate to use their game Monday to get on a winning streak and climb back into Stanley Cup Playoff contention in their respective conferences.
The Canadiens are 12th in the Eastern Conference, six points behind the New York Islanders and Tampa Bay Lightning in the battle for the two wild-card spots in the East. Montreal won three straight games before losing 6-4 against the Buffalo Sabres on Friday. They have lost 10 of the past 14 (4-9-1) and can't afford to slip further back.
