TV: CBC, RDS (HD), PRIME (HD)
Last 10: Anaheim 7-3-0; Montreal 7-1-2
Season series: This is the only meeting of the 2010-11 season between these clubs. In their most recent matchup, Montreal claimed a 4-3 win in Anaheim on March 7, 2010, as Tomas Plekanec beat Jonas Hiller in the fourth round of a shootout. Plekanec also scored in regulation to start the Canadiens back from a 3-0 deficit.
Big story: Saku Koivu was taken by Montreal in the first round of the 1993 Entry Draft. He played 13 seasons for the Canadiens, recorded 191 goals and 641 points, was the longtime captain of the team and successfully battled cancer during his time there. Koivu is now in his second season with Anaheim and will return to the Bell Centre for the first time Saturday night.
"I think we were able to build a special bond and relationship with the people of Montreal," he said. "They were behind me and supported me throughout my career and I don't expect anything but a positive reaction."
