The Canadiens are at the beginning of a stretch of 7 consecutive home games. The Habs will play 9 of the next 10 games at home.
The Canadiens are 6-2-2 at home so far. Okay, but not great.
With so many home upcoming home games there is bound to be some tough road stretches ahead. Time to bank some points.
A good start is crucial, lose 2 or 3 in a row at home and the fans will make the Bell Centre feel like the most brutal road building.
