MONTREAL (Ticker) -- The Montreal Canadiens home to rebound from

a loss on Tuesday as they continue their season-long seven-game

homestand against the Calgary Flames.

Montreal opened the stretch of home games with three straight

wins before suffering a 2-1 overtime setback to New Jersey on

Saturday.

Rookie Matt D'Agostini scored in his third straight game for the

Canadiens, who had tallied 14 goals on the first three games of

the homestand.

Calgary has won two straight games and five of its last six to

get a season-high six games above .500.

Miikka Kiprusoff made 31 saves for his third shutout of the

season in Sunday's 3-0 blanking at the New York Rangers.

Captain Jarome Iginla, David Moss and Rene Bourque all scored in

the win for the Flames, who have not played at Montreal since a

5-4 loss on October 17, 2006.
