Canadiens attempt to slow high-octane Penguins

MONTREAL -- The Montreal Canadiens finally put together a strong defensive game in their last outing.

On Wednesday, it'll be put to the test when they host the high-flying Pittsburgh Penguins at the Bell Centre.

Montreal is coming off a 1-0 loss to Detroit on Monday afternoon, a defeat in which it limited the Red Wings to just 20 shots on goal -- while mustering a mere 18 of their own. The Canadiens were beaten on a perfect deflection by veteran Thomas Vanek.
