Canadiens try to halt California woes vs. Kings

LOS ANGELES -- The Montreal Canadiens will continue their annual trek through California when they face the Los Angeles Kings at Staples Center on Sunday afternoon. Though the temperatures are warmer than back home in their native Quebec, the reception from their hosts has been ice cold.

Montreal (16-6-2) sits atop the Atlantic Division thanks to its superior 12-1-1 record at home. Its 1-0 loss at San Jose on Friday dropped their road record below .500 (4-5-1).

The road through California has been especially rough with Montreal posting a 1-8-2 record in the last 11 games against the California teams (San Jose, Anaheim and Los Angeles). The Canadiens have struggled to find their offense in the first three games of this road trip, posting only five goals in three games and wasting two strong performances by goaltender Carey Price.
