The Sharks headed north with a nasty taste in their mouth that came from a final second defeat to the Bruins. It was Hockey Night in Canada and a game that many players in teal have obviously been looking forward to all road trip.
Plenty of history in Montreal and there's bound to be some connections with the Sharks.

Sharks have really been hit hard with injuries lately and another forward's prospects on the night, hung in the balance.
Wingels skating this a.m. in MON. Appears to be OK but will find out more shortly.— David Pollak (@PollakOnSharks) October 26, 2013
Overall, many tough decisions were being made in the morning.
Have to go to a stupid surprise party this afternoon won't be staying long @SanJoseSharks hockey on today at 4 Go Sharks— lynn bresson (@lynniebabe01) October 26, 2013
The guy is a rockstar. Niemi has played every minute of every game through Saturday to begin the Sharks season.
This is pretty cool...
@sharkvoice I love the vibe from the team this year. We're 8-1-1 and no one is satisfied. McClellan after loss: "unacceptable"— Brian Anderson (@JuiceBaba) October 26, 2013
Lineup decisions are made just after warmups prior to puck drop.
Last minute lineup change: @TommyWingels is in and good to go. James Sheppard is in. Mike Brown is out.— Dan Rusanowsky (@DanRusanowsky) October 26, 2013
It feels like Couture's line has started quite a few games in a row and every time Tyler Kennedy stands apart from the rest of the group during the National Anthems.
So when will Marleau stop hazing Tyler Kennedy and let him stand with the other guys during the anthem? #SJSharks— Kurt (@omgwubb) October 26, 2013
The Sharks get an early power play chance to start the game, but it seemed to work to Montreal's advantage.
Best chances on the Sharks PP so far have been the Habs penalty killers. Niemi with a huge save on Plecanec on the 2-1— Jamie Baker (@Bakes_Jamie13) October 26, 2013
Demers looking good tonight - great positioning the 2-1 against taking away the pass & has been active in the OZ creating chances. #SJSharks— Jamie Baker (@Bakes_Jamie13) October 26, 2013
McCarthy took last shift with Thornton and Hamilton. Hertl taking this one with Desjardins and Sheppard for #SJSharks.— David Pollak (@PollakOnSharks) October 26, 2013
Scoreless after 1 as responsible disciplined team defense continues 2 B the storyline of this road trip. #SJSharks— Jamie Baker (@Bakes_Jamie13) October 26, 2013
Man we need to score sum dirty,ugly goals. Whatever it takes #SJSharks— Kevin Crawford (@DevoutTeal12) October 26, 2013
Here we go, some scoring!
Sharks get inside on the aggressive Montreal PK and after some nice passing Couture tips one home to give the Sharks a 1-0 lead. #SJSharks— Jamie Baker (@Bakes_Jamie13) October 27, 2013
MTL applying serious pressure but #SJSharks holding on so far. Still 1-0 with 7:17 left in 2nd.— David Pollak (@PollakOnSharks) October 27, 2013
Niemi is out of his mind! His vision is ridiculous. #SJSharks— Matt Fraser (@TheFraze408) October 27, 2013
Vlasic saves a goal on the delayed penalty. Montreal to get first PP with 2:23 to go in second— Kevin Kurz (@KKurzCSN) October 27, 2013
When Clutch meets luck.
Dear Hockey God. Thank you. From the San Jose Sharks and the Logan Couture Fan Club. #SJSharks 2-0 Sharks after that gift!— Jamie Baker (@Bakes_Jamie13) October 27, 2013
Sharks rookie Matt Nieto certainly had a fast and noticeable game.
Nieto is so good I can forgive him for growing up a Ducks fan.— Fear The Fin (@fearthefin) October 27, 2013
Coming into tonight's game Wingels was tied for 3rd in NHL for shots blocked by a forward with 13. Couture tied for 5th with 12. #SJSharks— Jamie Baker (@Bakes_Jamie13) October 27, 2013
