Canadiens buy into defensive system
The Canadiens have rediscovered team defense and are back in winning style so far with a 4-2 record.
Wearing white jerseys in the style of the 1945-46 Stanley Cup champions, the Canadiens proved their quick start wasn't a fluke by beating Detroit 2-1 at home and holding the Red Wings to 19 shots on goal Monday night. Montreal is tied for third with Tampa Bay in the Eastern Conference and it is just two points behind Boston for the Northeast Division lead.
