MONTREAL -- It's said that home is where the heart is. For the Montreal Canadiens, it's also where the wins are.
A .500 team as the opposition, Montreal (17-6-3) has been dominant at the Bell Centre this season, where they've won 12 of 14 games and lost for the first time in regulation just a few weeks ago. Now, after a five-game road trip, they kick off a four-game homestand that begins with a tilt against the New Jersey Devils on Thursday night.
The Canadiens are coming off a 3-2 overtime loss to the St. Louis Blues to close out the trip, a point lost after holding a 2-0 lead in the game. But while the team earned half of the 10 points on the table during their road trip, they're pleased with their efforts overall.
