The Montreal Canadiens cross the border to spend U.S. Thanksgiving in the States this week , opening up a two-game road trip against the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday night at the Prudential Center.The Canadiens (11-6-4) have little interest in Thursday's holiday and day off, but instead itch to get back on the ice in New Jersey after blowing a two-goal lead and losing their last game, a 5-4 overtime defeat on home ice to the Washington Capitals on Monday.Montreal scored three straight goals to open the second period and secure that lead on Monday before falling flat the rest of the way and failing to extend their win streak to three games. Goaltender Carey Price made 29 saves, including a spectacular stop on Washington's Alex Ovechkin in the final seconds of regulation, earning the praise of his teammates and the respect from Ovechkin, who applauded Price after the play.Article continues below ..."Carey got us a point (Monday) night," Canadiens forward Tomas Tatar told the Montreal Gazette.While the loss was frustrating, it did not put a damper on Montreal's strong first quarter of the season. After finishing 28th overall in the NHL last season, the Canadiens are fifth overall in the Eastern Conference through 21 games and lead the league in goals scored 5-on-5."We went through what we went through last year and no one here wants that again," said Canadiens alternate captain Brendan Gallagher. "From day one we've created a culture here this season that's about hard work Nico Hischier Jersey , doing the right things. And everyone is buying in."Canadiens forward Max Domi leads the team with 25 points, and his ten goals already exceed his total from each of the previous two seasons. He brings a ten-game point-scoring streak into Wednesday's game. Rookie center Jesperi Kotkaniemi is tied for second in scoring among NHL rookies with 12 points.One area of concern for the Canadiens is the team's overall health. Team captain Shea Weber has yet to play a game following offseason surgery, while forwards Joel Armia and Paul Byron remain on injured reserve. And now defenseman Noah Juulsen is sidelined indefinitely with facial fractures suffered while blocking a shot against the Capitals.To take Juulsen's roster spot, the Canadiens recalled forward Michael Chaput from the minor leagues on Tuesday.The struggling Devils (8-9-2), who are tied for last place with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the East, received better news on the injury front Wednesday. Top-line center Nico Hischier practiced in his normal spot between Taylor Hall and Kyle Palmieri and is expected to return to the lineup after missing four games with a thumb injury."Sitting up there (in the press box) is tough," Hischier told reporters after practice. "When the team is playing well, it's great, you're having fun up there, too. But when it's not going well Dan Hamhuis Jersey Womens , you want to help."The Devils won the first two games Hischier sat out, but lost the two most recent games, including Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Hurricanes in Carolina. New Jersey scored just three goals in its last two games."He's a big part of our team," Hall said of Hischier, who has 12 points in 15 games. "He's our top line center. Hopefully, he's ready and healthy to go, maybe even a bit more energized after seeing some games off."Devils center Brian Boyle and defenseman Sami Vatanen both remain on injured reserve and will not play against the Canadiens. However, both skated on Tuesday and inch closer to returning to practice.In their absence, the Devils need other players to step up and produce. The team desperately needs more production from defenseman Will Butcher, who has only one goal and seven points; forward Marcus Johansson Youth Pavel Zacha Jersey , who sits on two goals and five points; and wingers Miles Wood and Stefan Noesen, who have combined for two goals."We are at our best when everyone is contributing," said Devils forward Blake Coleman.Last season, the Devils took five of a possible six points in three head-to-head meetings with the Canadiens. New Jersey scored four of its nine goals in the season series — three power play, one short-handed — on special teams and limited Montreal to only seven goals total. EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers know they've still got an outside shot at the playoffs. And they played like a team that has its sights set on the postseason.McDavid had a goal and an assist, Leon Draisaitl had three assists and the Oilers defeated the Columbus Blue Jackets 4-1 on Thursday night. The win kept Edmonton within five points of the Colorado Avalanche for the Western Conference's second wild-card berth."We're not stopping pushing, regardless of how it looks when you look at the standings," forward Ryan Nugent-Hopkins said. "We're going to keep pushing, we're going to keep picking up points and see what happens."Nugent-Hopkins Authentic Taylor Hall Jersey , Kyle Brodziak and Zack Kassian also scored for Edmonton, which ended a two-game skid."We're trying to climb back in it," Draisaitl said, "and we just have to take it game by game and try to collect as many points as we can on this homestand and the rest of the games and see where we stand."David Savard had the only goal for the Blue Jackets, who have lost three in a row.Columbus' loss coupled with Montreal's 4-0 shutout of the New York Islanders earlier in the night put the Canadiens into the Eastern Conference's second wild-card spot, one point ahead of the Blue Jackets."Now, we are out of a spot and we have to chase it down now," Columbus forward Matt Duchene said. "We have some big games coming up and there is a lot of time left, but we need to make good on it. It has to come ASAP. We don't have any time to mess around."Blue Jackets head coach John Tortorella said the time for talk is over."We just have to have some sort of urgency to try and get back into this, or we have no chance Womens Will Butcher Jersey ," he said. "I just don't think we understand the level that we need to play at right now."There was no scoring in a rather sedate first period with Columbus putting four shots on Edmonton's Mikko Koskinen and the Oilers only getting two shots on Jackets starter Joonas Korpisalo.Savard finally broke the deadlock for Columbus with 8:25 remaining in the second when he deflected Markus Nutivaara's shot past Koskinen.Edmonton responded less than two minutes later when Brodziak picked the corner after a setup pass from Joseph Gambardella, who picked up his first NHL point.McDavid set up Kassian 45 seconds into the third period to give Edmonton its first lead. Kassian tied a career high with his 14th goal of the season.Edmonton made it 3-1 when McDavid's shot went off the post and then bounced off of Korpisalo's back and in for his 37th of the season, putting him one point back of single-season career-high points total of 108.Nugent-Hopkins put the game away with a late power-play goal on the only man-advantage either team had on the night.NOTES: It was the second and final meeting between the teams this season, with Edmonton winning the previous matchup 4-0 on March 2. … Blue Jackets goalie Sergei Bobrovsky was out due to an undisclosed injury. Keith Kinkaid dressed as the backup.UP NEXTBlue Jackets: at Vancouver on Sunday.Oilers: host Ottawa on Saturday.
