One of the hottest NHL teams outside of Pittsburgh has been the surging Montreal Canadiens, who are getting solid contributions from seemingly everyone who puts on the sweater.
They're still not taking the disappointing Buffalo Sabres lightly, though.
Montreal looks to extend its winning streak while dealing Buffalo a sixth consecutive road loss Tuesday night in the first of two meetings at the Bell Centre this week.
The Canadiens (19-5-4) trail the Eastern Conference-leading Penguins by two points with a pair of games in hand. They've won five straight during Pittsburgh's nine-game run that began with a wild 7-6 overtime win March 2 at the Bell Centre.
Montreal, which also hosts Buffalo on Saturday, has earned at least one point in 16 of its last 17 games (13-1-3).
