Slumping Canadiens host Islanders

NY Islanders (8-10-2) at Montreal (11-5-3) 7:30 pm EST

MONTREAL (Ticker) -- The suddenly slumping Montreal Canadiens look to break out of a scoring drought Monday when they host the New York Islanders.

The Canadiens are just 3-4-2 in their last nine contests following an 8-1-1 start. They have not scored more than two goals in any of their last six games, managing a pair of 3-2 shootout wins during that stretch.

The struggles can be largely blamed on a lackluster power play that has converted just two of its last 31 opportunities, including an 0-of-4 effort in Saturday's 3-2 shootout loss to.

Goaltender Carey Price has not won consecutive starts since a three-game run from October 28-November 1, although he has allowed just two goals in each of his last four outings.

The Islanders are improving, having won four of their last five contests after a 2-7-2 stretch.

Joey MacDonald has started 10 straight games in net, yielding two goals or less in four of his last five appearances. He made 25 saves in Saturday's 4-2 win over Buffalo.

Doug Weight leads New York with 19 points while Trent Hunter and Bill Guerin have scored seven goals apiece.
