AGAINST THE CANADIENS
Thursday marks the second of four regular-season meetings between 2006 Eastern Conference quarterfinals opponents Carolina and Montreal. The teams met at the RBC Center on Nov. 2, a 4-0 Montreal win. The Hurricanes will travel to Montreal on Feb. 6 and Feb. 17 to round out the season series. In 2005-06, the Hurricanes posted a perfect 4-0-0 record against Montreal and outscored the Canadiens 25-9 in the teams’ four contests. Justin Williams led all scorers with nine points in last year’s four-game set, while Erik Cole led Carolina with five goals despite playing in just three of the four games between the clubs. The Hurricanes franchise posts a 51-86-19-2 all-time record against the Canadiens, including a 31-37-12-1 home mark, and a 20-49-7-1 record in Montreal.
