Last spring’s playoff antagonists go at it again at the Bell Centre Thursday night.
Chances are the Canadiens will dress a lineup that’s more NHL-ready than the prospect-laden roster that were easily beaten Wednesday night at Canadian Tire Centre.
Magnus Nygren scored on the Canadiens’ first shot of the game. Raphael Diaz scored late in the third period, when the result was no longer in doubt.
Between the two scores by Canadiens Dmen, the Senators got goals from Clarke MacArthur, Bobby Ryan, Milan Michalek, Cory Conacher and Mika Zabinejad.
Erik Karlsson had three assists.
