KEY GAME INFORMATION
MONTREAL: LAST SEASON: 29-40-31, 71 points. Finished sixth in Atlantic Division and missed playoffs.
COACH: Claude Julien (third season, 17th NHL season)
ADDED: F Max Domi, F Tomas Tatar, C Tomas Plekanec, F Joel Armia
LOST: LW Max Pacioretty, F Alex Galchenyuk
PLAYER TO WATCH: Carey Price. The all-world goaltender could be the difference between Montreal being one of the worst teams in the NHL and a playoff contender. He has the ability to steal games and will have to stay healthy and be at his best to have the Canadiens even dreaming about returning to the postseason.
OUTLOOK: Absent a heroic performance from Price, the Canadiens are in rebuilding territory after trading Pacioretty and Galchenyuk and counting on Domi and a youth movement to generate some optimism in hockey-mad Montreal. It's tough to see this as a playoff team on paper, especially with top defenseman Shea Weber out for at least the first couple of months of the regular season.
NEW JERSEY:
COACH: John Hynes (fourth season).
ADDED: D Eric Gryba, D Egor Yakovlev.
LOST: F Patrick Maroon, D John Moore, F Brian Gibbons, F Michael Grabner, F Jimmy Hayes.
PLAYER TO WATCH: Taylor Hall. Won NHL MVP in breakout season. Had team highs of 39 goals, 54 assists and 93 points, 41 points more than closest teammate. Led Devils to playoffs for first time since 2011-12. Developed great chemistry with No. 1 overall draft pick Nico Hischier.
ADDED two goals and four assists in playoffs. Had offseason surgery on torn ligaments in left hand. Needs to be just as good.
OUTLOOK: Devils didn't change much. They believe there is a good mixture of rising stars in Hall and Hischier and solid role players in Marcus Johansson, Kyle Palmieri and Miles Wood. The question remains the defense and goaltending. Keith Kinkaid replaced Cory Schneider as No. 1 in second half of season but struggled in postseason. Hip may keep Schneider out for start of season. Andy Greene and Sami Vatanen are top defenders. Will Butcher needs to repeat surprising rookie season. Youngsters John Quenneville and Nick Lappin may make the jump from AHL.
PREVIEW
Habs open brief road trip at New Jersey

The Montreal Canadiens cross the border to spend U.S. Thanksgiving in the States this week, opening up a two-game road trip against the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday night at the Prudential Center.

The Canadiens (11-6-4) have little interest in Thursday's holiday and day off, but instead itch to get back on the ice in New Jersey after blowing a two-goal lead and losing their last game, a 5-4 overtime defeat on home ice to the Washington Capitals on Monday.

Montreal scored three straight goals to open the second period and secure that lead on Monday before falling flat the rest of the way and failing to extend their win streak to three games. Goaltender Carey Price made 29 saves, including a spectacular stop on Washington's Alex Ovechkin in the final seconds of regulation, earning the praise of his teammates and the respect from Ovechkin, who applauded Price after the play.

"Carey got us a point (Monday) night," Canadiens forward Tomas Tatar told the Montreal Gazette.

While the loss was frustrating, it did not put a damper on Montreal's strong first quarter of the season. After finishing 28th overall in the NHL last season, the Canadiens are fifth overall in the Eastern Conference through 21 games and lead the league in goals scored 5-on-5.

"We went through what we went through last year and no one here wants that again," said Canadiens alternate captain Brendan Gallagher. "From day one we've created a culture here this season that's about hard work, doing the right things. And everyone is buying in."

Canadiens forward Max Domi leads the team with 25 points, and his ten goals already exceed his total from each of the previous two seasons. He brings a ten-game point-scoring streak into Wednesday's game. Rookie center Jesperi Kotkaniemi is tied for second in scoring among NHL rookies with 12 points.

One area of concern for the Canadiens is the team's overall health. Team captain Shea Weber has yet to play a game following offseason surgery, while forwards Joel Armia and Paul Byron remain on injured reserve. And now defenseman Noah Juulsen is sidelined indefinitely with facial fractures suffered while blocking a shot against the Capitals.

To take Juulsen's roster spot, the Canadiens recalled forward Michael Chaput from the minor leagues on Tuesday.

The struggling Devils (8-9-2), who are tied for last place with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the East, received better news on the injury front Wednesday. Top-line center Nico Hischier practiced in his normal spot between Taylor Hall and Kyle Palmieri and is expected to return to the lineup after missing four games with a thumb injury.

"Sitting up there (in the press box) is tough," Hischier told reporters after practice. "When the team is playing well, it's great, you're having fun up there, too. But when it's not going well, you want to help."

The Devils won the first two games Hischier sat out, but lost the two most recent games, including Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Hurricanes in Carolina. New Jersey scored just three goals in its last two games.

"He's a big part of our team," Hall said of Hischier, who has 12 points in 15 games. "He's our top line center. Hopefully, he's ready and healthy to go, maybe even a bit more energized after seeing some games off."

Devils center Brian Boyle and defenseman Sami Vatanen both remain on injured reserve and will not the Canadiens. However, both skated on Tuesday and inch closer to returning to practice.

In their absence, the Devils need other players to step up and produce. The team desperately needs more production from defenseman Will Butcher, who has only one goal and seven points; forward Marcus Johansson, who sits on two goals and five points; and wingers Miles Wood and Stefan Noesen, who have combined for two goals.

"We are at our best when everyone is contributing," said Devils forward Blake Coleman.

Last season, the Devils took five of a possible six points in three head-to-head meetings with the Canadiens. New Jersey scored four of its nine goals in the season series -- three power play, one short-handed -- on special teams and limited Montreal to only seven goals total.
