Habs hope to exorcise Devils in last home game of year

(TSX / STATS) -- MONTREAL -- The Montreal Canadiens only have five games left before the Christmas break, and Thursday night's contest against the New Jersey Devils is their last home game before the New Year.

After losing their last three, the Habs (13-14-4) will be looking to close out 2017 at the Bell Centre with a victory.

"We've got one home game left before we head on the road for this Christmas break, so it's a pretty important five games for us," Montreal forward Brendan Gallagher told the team website. "We're going to try to take things game-by-game, but really understand that we can't have any bad nights. We've got to be accountable to our teammates, and try to string something together here."
