The Senators have won the first two games on this three-game road trip and seven of their last eight games.

The Canadiens have lost their last two games and four of their last six.

They are 3-7-0 in their last 10 and 7-8-6 at home.

The Senators, by contrast, are 10-7-5 on the road.

They return home after this game to face the Winnipeg Jets on Monday night before heading out on a five-game road trip.

For the Canadiens, Scott Gomez will be back after missing 21 games with a groin injury.

The newly acquired Rene Bourque will not play until Sunday against the Rangers. He has one game left to serve in a five-game suspension.
