Struggling Canadiens try to notch first win against Red Wings

There's already a sense of desperation enveloping the Montreal Canadiens less than two weeks into the season.

Following a trip to the Stanley Cup Finals last season, the Canadiens are off to an 0-5 start for the first time since the 1995-96 season. They'll seek that elusive first victory once again on Saturday when they host Detroit.

"It's tough right now," Canadiens center Nick Suzuki told the Montreal Gazette. "The confidence for our group just seems to be low. There's plays that we make all the time and we're just not executing them. It's definitely a tough patch.
