Canadiens look to rebound vs. Flames

The Montreal Canadiens are off to an unexpectedly good start this season with a 4-1-2 record, but are facing their first bit of adversity when they host the Calgary Flames at Bell Centre on Tuesday.

The Canadiens twice blew two-goal leads and ultimately lost 4-3 in overtime Saturday to the Ottawa Senators, another early-season surprise. It will be interesting to see how the Canadiens bounce back against the Flames.

"You have to learn from losses," Canadiens forward Brendan Gallagher told montrealcanadiens.com after practice Monday. "You learn more from a loss than you do from a win. We made some mistakes. We understand the errors we made.
