Reeling Canadiens hope to snap drought at San Jose

Just a few months after making a storybook run to the Stanley Cup Final, the Montreal Canadiens find themselves in a completely different scenario heading into a Thursday night road game against the San Jose Sharks.

Following an embarrassing 5-1 loss at Seattle on Tuesday night -- the first home win in franchise history for the expansion Kraken -- Montreal has won just once in its first seven games this season, and its two points are the fewest in the Eastern Conference.

The Canadiens are also tied with Arizona for the fewest goals in the league with 11. And next up is a game in San Jose, where they have dropped 11 in a row (0-9-2) in the regular season dating back to a 3-2 overtime victory in 1999.
