Since the Habs went 3-0 in 1998-1999 they have had a horrible record against our Western Canadian friends on the road.

*Denotes Heritage Classic
Total record of: 3-15-1(T)-3(OTL) in the last 22 games out west. HOLY **** THAT'S BAD.
The Habs have not won at Rexall Place in Edmonton since December 29th, 1998. Jeff Hackett was in net and the final score was 5-2. They have however won at Commonwealth Stadium in 2003.
The last win in Vancouver came on January 2nd, 1999. Jeff Hackett was also in net in a 2-1 win.
Last win in Calgary came January 5th, 2002. On the heels of a great Theodore performace, the Habs won 4-2.
THIS IS BRUTAL!
This is going to be a tough trip regardless if the teams are good or bad. We need the wins.
