The Montreal Canadiens will try to post consecutive wins for the first time in a month when they host the New York Islanders tonight at the Bell Centre.

Montreal Canadiens defenseman Chris Campoli will return to the lineup for Tuesday's game against the New York Islanders.
Campoli has been sidelined since suffering a torn hamstring in the season opener against Toronto.
The 27-year-old Campoli spent last season with Ottawa and Chicago, notching four goals and 17 assists in 77 games.
The Islanders returned Kevin Poulin to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers yesterday. Poulin did not see any game action in the week he spent as Al Montoya’s back up.
The move appears to be a precursor to the return of Evgeni Nabokov, who has been on injured reserve retroactively since November 17 with a groin injury. Prior to the injury he was 1-5-0 with a .910 save percentage in eight...
from Michael Farber of Sports Illustrated, Maybe the Islanders, who began the week 14th in the Eastern Conference, are moving in the right direction. But in comparison to, say, Minnesota or Florida, it seems like turning around the fortunes of this franchise is more difficult than making a K-turn with a battleship.
“Sometimes (winning) is a slower process,” Islanders left winger...
The Islanders will have a fresh face on their roster when they take on the Dallas Stars tomorrow night. Newsday’s Arthur Staple reported that either Aaron Ness or Calvin de Haan would be called up due to concussion like symptoms felt by Steve Staios.
Staios will miss tomorrow’s game due to NHL concussion protocol and Staples says that the Islanders may need Ness or de Haan longer...
BROSSARD – In today’s notebook: Eller looks for more finish, Gill sets a bad example and Subban gets patriotic.
Moves like Eller: It didn’t wind up on the scoresheet, but Lars Eller’s nifty dangle to split the Islanders de...

Last night's game in Montreal was one the New York Islanders will wish to soon forget. The Canadiens were able to grab the two points by defeating the Isles 5-3 at the Bell Centre. Don't let the (relatively) close score fool you: This was a mismatch from the opening face-off, and though the Isles would eventually wake up, it'd just be too little...
The Canadiens won their second in a row, blowing a 3-1 lead but eventually beating the Islanders 5-3. Isles’ goaltender Al Montoya wasn’t particularly sharp on this night, and the difference for the Canadiens was largely the fourth line, but a wins a win and Montreal will take it.
Quick highlights: Tomas Kaberle notched an assist, he now has three in two games as a Hab, and...
He was cut by countless junior and minor teams, drafted in the ninth round, and plays an unsightly game. Michael Farber has the story of Matt Moulson, a most unlikely 30-goal scorer.
For the past several seasons, the New York Islanders enjoyed little success against the Montreal Canadiens.
Their luck could be changing.
In a matchup of the Eastern Conference's two lowest-scoring teams, the Islanders look to beat the Canadiens for a fourth straight time Tuesday night in Montreal.
When these teams met Nov. 17 on Long Island, New York (9-12-6) scored all of...
Petteri Nokelainen scored with 6:15 remaining as the Montreal Canadiens recovered after giving up a two-goal lead in the third period, beating the New York Islanders 5-3 Tuesday night.
MONTREAL — Al Montoya stopped 24 shots, but it was not enough as the Islanders’ winless streak hit three games.
“They battled and that’s what you look for,” coach Jack Capuano said after his team’s 5-3 loss to the Canadiens. “We’re down by two goals and we kept...
The Pens made a roster move, recalling Jason Williams from WBS. Williams, 31, made his Pittsburgh debut against the New York Islanders on Saturday night with 11:28 minutes of ice time.
Good morning from CONSOL En...
