Habs seek to snap skid as Blue Jackets visit

While the Montreal Canadiens find themselves slumping at an inopportune time, the Columbus Blue Jackets are playing some of their best hockey on the road.

The Canadiens look to avoid equaling a season high with their fifth consecutive defeat Tuesday night, while trying to keep the Blue Jackets from winning a 2018-19-best fifth straight road contest.

Overachieving Montreal has been one of the bigger surprises on the NHL season and currently finds itself tied for an Eastern Conference wild-card position. However, the Canadiens are 0-3-1 following an 8-1-1 stretch. Now, the Canadiens return home following a trip during which they dropped all three games in regulation -- the first time they were held without a point in three consecutive contests all season.
