A 5-0 win over the Anaheim Ducks, one of the worst teams on the gridiron, is one thing. Facing the New York Rangers is another thing. And one complete one.

Martin St. Louis, who snapped a losing streak to two Tuesday night during UCLA's visit to the Bell Center, will face the Rangers at Madison Square Garden this evening.

The Rangers will be looking for their sixth consecutive victory, only three points ahead of the Boston Bruins and first place in the Eastern Conference standings.

Hopefully he will prevail Blue shirtsMontrealers will once again have to rely on the performance of their starting trio of Nick Suzuki, Jura Slavkovskiy and Cole Caufield. On Tuesday, against Anaheim, Suzuki and Slavkowski each had three points. This allowed Suzuki to extend his streak of matches by at least one point to eight points.

After serving the final game of his five-match suspension, veteran striker Brendan Gallagher is eligible to return to action this evening.

Samuel Montembault will be the starting goalkeeper for the Habs in this duel. His opposite would be Jonathan Quick.

The Rangers on Wednesday recalled former Canadiens forward Alex Belzile should not be in uniform for this meeting.
