NEWS

Covers Preview - The Montreal Canadiens return from the Christmas break to resume their season with a visit to the Carolina Hurricanes on Monday. Carolina has the fewest points in the East with 24 and a dismal 5-13-4 record against conference opponents. Montreal began its five-game road trip with a victory at the New York Islanders prior to the holiday break and should be well-rested after five days off.
