The Canadiens look to turn the page from the embarrassing 5-0 loss to the Washington Capitals on Saturday and put an end to their four game losing streak as they welcome the Carolina Hurricanes.

The Canes have been red hot as of late; they're 7-3-0 in their last 10 games and are looking to extend their winning streak to five games tonight at the Bell Centre. .

The Canadiens coaching staff has taken a positive approach when trying to get out of their slump.

"He's doing a great job of communicating with us, staying positive and keeping the mood light" Max Pacioretty said in regards to Michel Therrien.

Therrien has been the one taking a lot of heat for the Canadiens poor performance, some have even suggested a coaching change is in order.

"Before you start looking at our coaching staff you need to look at the players on the team. I've been a minus four in the last two games, we need to be better" P.K Subban said in defense of his bench boss.

A win tonight could mean more than just picking up two points, it could lead to the momentum swing the Habs are in need of.

"Every team goes through adversity at some point in the season and we're dealing with it now; it's how react to that adversity that's important. We will get through this, I am confident of that." Therrien told the media.
