Canadiens feeling pressure entering rematch with Flames

After another loss to their North Division tormentors, the Montreal Canadiens will try to solve the visiting Calgary Flames when the two clubs meet again on Friday evening.

Montreal dropped to 1-4-0 against Calgary this season with Wednesday's 4-1 defeat in Montreal. After a 4-2 victory over the Flames on Jan. 28, the Habs have lost their past four meetings with Calgary by a cumulative 11-3 score.

The one-sided nature of the rivalry looms large considering that Montreal is trying to hold off Calgary for the fourth and final North Division playoff spot. Even though the Canadiens have three games at hand on the Flames, Calgary sits just four points back of Montreal, with several chances to directly narrow that deficit. After Friday's game, the two teams will play a three-game set in Calgary from April 23-26.
