Montreal Canadiens Form & Team News


Montreal came back from the brink to upset Toronto in round one of the playoffs.

The Canadiens edged Game 1 in that series but then suffered three straights, meaning they had to win out to stay alive.

They did just that, recording back-to-back overtime wins, 4-3 and 3-2, to level the series and then completed the comeback with a 3-1 win in Toronto.

Montreal stayed on a roll too in the next round as they swept Winnipeg in impressive fashion.

The Canadiens had struggled against the Jets in the regular season but never looked back after winning Game 1, 5-3.

They edged Game 2 by scoring the only goal and then blew out Winnipeg 5-1 before sealing the series with another overtime win.

It was not all plain-sailing for the Candiens though as they lost Jake Evans (concussion) indefinitely, while Jeff Petry (upper body) is day-to-day.

Jon Merrill (undisclosed) is also a question mark, but there will be no return for Jonathan Drouin (personal).

Vegas Golden Knights Form & Team News


Vegas won a marathon seven-game clash with Minnesota in round one and needed six games to upset Colorado in the last round.

The Golden Knights made a nightmare start to the series with the Avalanche as they were crushed 7-1 just two days after wrapping up against the Wild.

They ran Colorado closer in Game 2 only to lose 3-2 in overtime, but that would be the last time that the Avalanche got the better of them.

Vegas showed their resolve in Game 3 as they came back from the brink to win 3-2, and then bounced back from conceding an early goal to romp to a 5-1 win in Game 4.

The Golden Knights showed their fighting spirit again in Game 5, coming back from two down to beat Colorado 3-2 in overtime, and then sealed the series with a 6-3 win on the home ice.

There is no change on the injury report from that series. Tomas Nosek (undisclosed) and Peyton Krebs (jaw) remain listed as day-to-day.
