The Canadiens are in action Saturday night against the lowly Detroit Red Wings at the Bell Centre.
If you, as a Habs fan, thought suffering an eight-game winless streak was bad. The Red Wings recently snapped a 12-game winless streak with a win over the Winnipeg Jets Thursday.
Following Saturday’s game, the Habs will be on the road for the next seven games. This road trip includes a four-game Western Canada trip with no back-to-back starts. It could explain why Cayden Primeau was assigned to Laval this morning, with Charlie Lindgren being called up in his place.
