Montreal (16-8-5) at Carolina (13-12-5), 7:00 p.m. EST

RALEIGH, North Carolina (Ticker) -- After a disappointing end to

their homestand, the Montreal Canadiens visit the Carolina

Hurricanes on Tuesday.

Montreal scored one goal in each of its last two home games -

both resulting in losses - to end its season-long, seven-game

homestand at 4-2-1.

The Canadiens went 0-for-8 on the power play and were defeated,

2-1, by the Washington Capitals on Saturday.

Defenseman Patrice Brisebois scored Montreal's lone goal in the

loss to Washington and the 37-year-old also had the only tally

in Thursday's 3-1 setback to Tampa Bay.

Carolina is coming off back-to-back shootout losses and is just

2-5-3 in its last 10 games.

Tuomo Ruutu and Ray Whitney scored the Hurricanes' goals in

Saturday's 3-2 loss to the New York Rangers. Carolina did not

score in any of its five attempts in the bonus format.

The teams have split the first two contests this season.
