Two teams coming off disappointing losses meet Wednesday, and both are trying to figure things out on special teams.
The Montreal Canadiens can't seem to score on the power play and suddenly the Colorado Avalanche are struggling to consistently kill penalties. Something has to give when the teams play at Pepsi Center in Denver on Wednesday night.
Montreal (17-12-5) lost to Boston 4-0 on Monday night in a game right winger Brendan Gallagher called "one of the worst of my career" afterward. The Canadiens had won six of their previous eight games, they were rested but were outshot 35-22 by a Bruins team playing the second of back-to-back games.
