Scouting Report:

Despite winning their first game of the season, the Montreal Canadiens have reached the point of desperation when it comes to getting a victory.

With Montreal riding a seven-game losing streak for the first time since 1940, the consistency and team chemistry are amiss.

It is hard to believe that this is the same team that boasted lengthy winning streaks to start the last two seasons, but in reality, it isn't the same club that welcomes the Florida Panthers to the Bell Centre on Tuesday night.

On the other side of the spectrum, the Panthers (3-4-0) are coming off a big 4-1 road win over the Washington Capitals on Saturday. The Panthers were dealt a big blow when veteran goaltender Roberto Luongo went down with a hand injury and was placed on the injured reserve list that same morning, but veteran goalie James Reimer took the reins and made 41 saves to help seal the Florida victory.
