The Canadiens are in New Jersey tonight playing for the first time ever at New Jersey’s brand new Prudential Center.
A new building out of the swamp might be what the Habs need to break out of their New Jersey funk.
New Jersey (12-10-2) has won its last eight meetings with Montreal (13-8-3) dating to a 3-2 road loss on March 20, 2004. Since that defeat, the Devils have outscored the Canadiens 29-16, including 12-4 in 2006-07 to sweep the four-game season series.
The Devils have turned it on recently winning 5 straight and Martin Brodeur’s GAA is a 1.40 over that span.
A big challenge for starter Carey Price who has yet to have the misfortune of starting for the Canadiens in NJ against Martin Brodeur.
Will he be the remedy to the Jersey curse?
With the mighty Senators playing so poorly as of late, putting together a few wins now could see the Habs close in on #1 in the Northeast.
