Canadiens shut out Wild 4-0

Canadiens shut out Wild 4-0”

And in the 127th game. I understand if you thought that this meant the first time they were above.500 ever, but actually, this just meant for the first time this season.They made the playoffs a year ago and even won a series, but it's nice to see that our measure of success for the Isles is still a very low bar.

Needless to say, the Bell Centre went insane in celebration of the young defender. "That was pretty cool. It was ear-piercing", recounted Mete. In his 127th career game, Victor Mete decided the joke just wasn't amusing anymore.

"The fans knew what happened, they're very knowledgeable and they were glad they were here to see his first goal", coach Claude Julien said. That's exciting for him.

"It seems like it's been on my mind for a while and it's good to get it out of the way", Suzuki said.

"Hopefully. I like my steak medium rare", he cracked. We've got to figure it out.

He started the season as the right winger on the No. 2 line with Domi at centre, but most recently has played on the fourth line with Nate Thompson while also earning time on the power play. "Finally it's in, so the floodgates are open for him". He's obviously excited to score his first goal; it's a nice one on the backdoor there.

We have talked about it a lot that the Wild have the ability to get the game level up for stretches however they have yet to show the ability to sustain it over any extended period. With the win, the Habs improved to 3-2-2, while the Wild dropped to 1-6-0 on the season.

Canadiens forward Brendan Gallagher looks to pass the puck next to Wild goalie Alex Stalock Thursday night.

"You rely on past experiences to get out of it, so that's what we're trying to do". "I was able to play freely like I've always been playing".

"He's been at it for a long time and I'm just getting started", said Suzuki, who was playing his seventh game. The crowd was going pretty nuts. "It's been a while for him and I'm just starting, so hopefully we can both score some more goals".

Victor Mete and Nick Suzuki each scored their first National Hockey League goals to lead the Montreal Canadiens to a convincing 4-0 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Thursday night.

Wild defenceman Matt Dumba says the team has the players in the room capable of turning things around.

The Canadiens practice at the Bell Sports Complex on Friday morning before departing for St. Louis.

The Wild have a chance at redemption when Montreal travels to Minnesota for the rematch on Sunday.
