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.
PHILADELPHIA: LAST SEASON: 42-26-14, 98 Points. Third in Metropolitan Division.
LOST to Pittsburgh Penguins in first round of Eastern Conference playoffs.
COACH: Dave Hakstol (fourth season, fourth NHL season).
ADDED: F James van Riemsdyk, D Christian Folin.
LOST: F Matt Read, D Brandon Manning.
PLAYER TO WATCH: Nolan Patrick. The Flyers bet their future on the 20-year-old Patrick when they made the center the No. 2 pick of the 2017 draft. Patrick had been bothered by a variety of injuries and but didn't need offseason surgery for the first time since 2015. Patrick's ice time jumped late in the season and he could blossom into a star this season paired on a line with James van Riemsdyk, a 36-goal scorer who signed a $35 million, five-year contract. On a team that still counts on the veterans for the bulk of the scoring, Patrick's emergence would show the Flyers were right to start a rebuild.
OUTLOOK: The Flyers have won between 33 and 42 games each of the last five years, a streak of mediocrity that sometimes gets them in the playoffs and sometimes it doesn't. The Flyers would like to not have to wait until the final week of the season to qualify for a playoff berth but it's difficult to imagine they can approach 100 points this season.
Flyers still alive for playoffs as Canadiens hit town

The Philadelphia Flyers will attempt to keep their slim playoff hopes alive when they host the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday.

The Flyers remarkably earned a 2-1 win Sunday on the road against the Pittsburgh Penguins to stay within six points of the final playoff berth. Trailing 1-0, the Flyers pulled goaltender Carter Hart and James van Riemsdyk tied the game with 18.8 seconds remaining in regulation.

Sean Couturier then notched the game winner with 3.4 seconds left in overtime for the improbable victory.

Hart stopped 41 shots, tying a career-high, and the Flyers celebrated.

"If we don't win tonight, that's a huge hole," Flyers interim head coach Scott Gordon told reporters. "We're definitely running out of time. It was a game that we definitely needed the two points and got a lot of big performances in the end."

While van Riemsdyk and Couturier scored the key goals, the victory wouldn't have been possible without the 20-year-old Hart.

The rookie goaltender missed a large chunk of game action between Feb. 21 and March 11 with an injury. But he appears to have regained his form.

"For us to come back like that in the third period, it feels like we've almost done it in every game against these guys," Hart told reporters.

The Flyers' 23rd-ranked power play continued to struggle as the unit went 0-for-3. But the Flyers did receive a major lift from captain Claude Giroux, who had been questionable with an illness.

In the end, the Flyers managed to pull out a clutch win to stay six points within the Columbus Blue Jackets.

"He was great," Couturier told reporters of Hart's performance. "That's what you want from your goalie. We had to step up for him."

The Canadiens are still very much in the mix for a playoff berth as they trail the Blue Jackets by three points.

But Montreal fell 2-0 at home to the Chicago Blackhawks Saturday for its fourth loss in the last five games.

Goaltender Carey Price made 22 saves yet the offense couldn't generate any goals despite outshooting the Blackhawks 48-24.

"Our backs are against the wall," Montreal captain Shea Weber told reporters. "We have to find a way to win. Everyone is frustrated. We want to win and we're not winning, so it's tough. We have to find a way to score goals."

Like the Flyers, the Canadiens continue to struggle on the power play, ranking dead last in the NHL. They went 0-for-4 against the Blackhawks, a large reason why they lost again.

''We were digging and we were getting in front,'' Montreal forward Jordan Weal told reporters. ''It was one of those nights where we couldn't put one past the goal line. It's frustrating because every game right now is so huge. We were generating a lot. We were hitting posts. We were hitting crossbars. We were millimeters away.

"If we play like that here on out, we have a good chance to win.''

Montreal is always a formidable opponent, especially with Price in goal. Though the Canadiens were blanked 2-0 by Chicago, Price recently was honored by the team for winning his 315th career game to move into first place in franchise history for victories by a goaltender. Jacques Plante previously held the record.
