The Montreal Canadiens continue their road trip through California, and next on the block are the San Jose Sharks. The West Coast has been tough on the Habs in recent years, as the juggernauts of the Kings, Ducks and Sharks have had their way with the Canadiens over the last decade. San Jose has been particularly difficult for Montreal. They’ve managed to win just two games out of the 16 played in San Jose against the Sharks. But after an important win against Los Angeles on Tuesday, the Canadiens are hopeful they’ve turned around their California woes.
