MONTREAL -- The Detroit Red Wings are looking to accomplish something no other team has this season -- beat the Montreal Canadiens at the Bell Centre. Shawn Matthias Jersey .The Canadiens improved to 9-0-0 at home this season following arguably their best effort of the season in a 4-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings. Montreal limited the Kings to just 24 shots -- the second time this season it held an opponent to fewer than 28 shots on goal and the first time in six games it held to fewer than 35.Those controlled exits today were huge, Canadiens captain Max Pacioretty said after the win of what led his teams success. It led to more poise through the neutral zone, more poise in the offensive zone, and I think what it really led to is that possession kept the puck out of our end and allowed us to create some offense.Detroit, meanwhile, is coming off a 3-1 win over the Vancouver Canucks, aided greatly by another strong outing from goaltender Jimmy Howard. The Red Wings jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period but Howard had to be sharp, facing 37 shots on the night -- the fourth time in seven games hes made at least 30 saves.Its been a turnaround of late for the veteran netminder, who started the season as Petr Mrazeks back-up. Howards gotten the nod from coach Jeff Blashill in three straight and is expected to do the same against Montreal.Jimmy looked solid again. He doesnt give up and he isnt spitting out rebounds, Blashill told reporters after the game. Hes controlling the rebounds and the puck is going to him.Economical is a good word, he added. Hes been real economical in his movement, and when goalies are playing well, they under-move, they dont over-move.There will be one definite lineup change for Detroit on Saturday. Right winger Anthony Mantha was called up on Friday to replace Andreas Athanasiou, who suffered a knee sprain against Vancouver and will miss one to two weeks.Mantha has enjoyed a strong season in the AHL to date, recording eight goals and two assists in 10 games.Thats how I had to start the year, the 22-year-old told reporters in Detroit after practice on Friday. I talked to (coach Jeff Blashill) and (general manager) Kenny (Holland) when I left here and they wanted me to dominate in the American League. I think thats what Im showing right now by the start I had, and I just need to bring that up here.Mantha appeared in 10 games with the Red Wings last season, picking up two goals and an assist. He scored both goals against Montreal.The Canadiens earned a day off on Friday and will host Detroit before flying off to Chicago for a tilt with the Blackhawks on Sunday. Coach Michel Therrien is often reluctant to change a winning lineup and, given how well his team played against Los Angeles, will probably keep his 20-man group intact.That group includes a balanced attack, which saw three of its four forward lines contribute to the win. Two of those goals -- including the empty-netter -- came from Montreals top line, featuring center Alex Galchenyuk between Alexander Radulov and speedy winger Paul Byron.The trio has been key in the Canadiens two most recent wins, combining for nine points. Radulov has especially impressed and, of his nine assists on the season, eight have been primary.Hes a relentless worker out there, Byron said of his Radulov. He always puts himself in smart positions to protect the puck, using his body. Hes such a strong guy on the puck, you see hes always chasing, digging, and coming out of those puck battles. Ondrej Pavelec Jersey . There are surprises among the Vezina candidates, but most of the others are standard top-tier performers, even if the two Hart Trophy runners-ups have never been quite as good as they have been through the first half of the season. Josh Morrissey Jersey . Pedro scored from a pass by Lionel Messi in the 33rd minute and added two more goals in the 47th and 72nd after Valdes saved his second penalty in four days following his stop in Wednesdays 4-0 over Ajax in the Champions League. http:///...strom-Adidas-Jersey/ .S. hockey team after paying his dues as an NHL general manager for more than three decades and giving up a lot of his free time to help USA Hockey. Sydney FC have continued their sensational unbeaten start to the A-League season as David Carney scored a brace to send Melbourne Victory packing 2-1 in a thrilling, spiteful Big Blue.The Sky Blues rode their luck throughout a tricky first half at Allianz Stadium on Saturday then came from a goal down to stick the knife in and claim their first win against Victory in 10 meetings.The result leaves the Sky Blues with five wins from five games this season and five points clear at the top of the table - though it wasnt always clear-cut.Sydney conceded their first goal of this campaign when Mitch Austin put Victory in front on 41 minutes.It was a deserved goal for the left-winger, who played the role of creator all night and ran Sydney right-back Rhyan Grant ragged.Yet it should have come much earlier in an incredibly lucky first half for the hosts, during which Besart Berisha had a goal disallowed and missed a penalty, while captain Alex Brosque could well have been sent off for his heavy challenge on Leigh Broxham.Sandwiched in between, Marco Rojas missed a sitter with Sydney goalkeeper Danny Vukovic erroneously off his line and an empty net beckoning.Austin, who delivered Rojas the cross, was also provider of a lovely through ball to Berisha in the opening minutes, but the offside flag was raised moments after the Albanian striker chipped into the net.Berisha was then the recipient of wild jeers from 19,143 mostly Sydney fans for his shocking attempt at a penalty.The shot skewed high and left of goal, forcing a wry smile from him and a taunt from Filip Holosko, the man who had fouled him in the box.Despite the catalogue of close calls and chances at both ends, Sydneey had a slight upper hand, with Serbian playmaker Milos Ninkovic applying pressure and Josh Brillante narrowly missing a long-range bullet. Alexander Burmistrov Jersey. Graham Arnold clearly wasnt happy though and the coach traded barbs with his Victory counterpart Kevin Muscat, who was given a warning by referee Chris Beath as tensions boiled over.Tempers flared on the field too as substitute Matt Simon got rough with James Donachie and Michael Zullo suffered a nasty collision with a pitchside table.Amid the drama, Arnold made the big call of replacing marquee man Holosko with veteran Carney on the hour mark - and it proved a masterstroke.The former Socceroo struck just four minutes into his introduction, appearing to handle Brosques ball in the box before stabbing home with his left foot.Then, on the 78th minute, Grant cut the ball back to Carney for his clinical left boot to prod home again.Muscat said Carneys first goal was a definite handball.We cant do anything about it now, but people say there was a change to the outcome of the game - well, its a goal, Muscat said.But weve got to learn from that as well because they get in behind us from a throw-in, so weve got to take some responsibility.But were just asking, in my opinion, for the referee to see those decisions or those outcomes.Arnold was pleased with his teams fantastic comeback, having implored them at halftime to revert to their possession-based game.We didnt play our way in the first half, Arnold said.We wanted to get more involved in the fight and tried to get in behind them too quick.
