Montreal completes a four-game Western Canada road trip tonight, having gone 2-1 in the first three. The latest result was a 4-1 win at Vancouver on Saturday.

Off to a 3-2 start, the Habs have had a win from backup goalie Peter Budaj and sharp netminding from Carey Price, even though he's just 2-2. Price's average is 2.27 and his save percentage is .929.

Captain Brian Gionta rejoins the team for tonight's game, having missed Saturday's contest to be home with his ill son.

Montreal pretty much owns the head-to-head series with Jets 2.0, having won all three games last season and six of the seven meetings so far.

Centre Daniel Briere, a free-agent signing in the summer, will be moved down to the fourth line tonight. "We've got a lot of depth with our forwards and we decided to put Daniel Briere on the fourth line but you know what, things could change really quick in this business," Montreal coach Michel Therrien said Monday. "This is the way we're going to start the game."
