CH: Worrying statistics at home

Considered one of the best amphitheaters in the National League, the Bell Center is no longer the fortress it once was.

While home ice advantage plays a key role in a game, the Canadian is unable to thrive in front of his fans.

Since November 12, Montreal has only one win in eight home games, which puts the team in last place in the NHL.

The poor numbers are also reflected on special teams, with a low 16.4% power play performance since the start of the season compared to 71% on the penalty kill.

If fans want to see their favorite win at the Bell Center, they’ll have better luck at Saturday’s games.

“On Saturday night at home this season it’s four wins and one overtime loss. When Martin St-Louis says that Saturday night is special, he doesn’t say it for nothing,” said Renaud Lavoie in his checking segment on JiC.

Good news for the fans, as the CH will cross swords at home against the Islanders on Saturday evening. A meeting that will be broadcast on TVA Sports from 6 p.m.
