MONTREAL (AP) — The Montreal Canadiens lost their game to the Minnesota Wild Edmonton Oilers T-Shirts Authentic , but not their captain.Mikael Granlund scored, Devan Dubnyk stopped 32 shots for his first shutout of the season and the Wild defeated the Canadiens 1-0 Monday night.The Canadiens got good news about Shea Weber, who was hit in the face with the puck while blocking a shot in the first period.The Canadiens’ captain will travel with the team on a two-game trip, starting Tuesday night in Detroit.It’s a major break for the Canadiens, who have lost two games in a row and are struggling get back in a playoff position in the Eastern Conference.“He’ll go on the road trip with us,” Montreal coach Claude Julien said. “The tests were positive. I assume he will play (on Tuesday) but I can’t guarantee it.”Weber blocked a shot by Granlund and the puck rode up his own stick and hit him on the left cheek.Weber winced in pain on the bench but played seven more shifts and finished the first period. He did not return for the second.The 33-year-old already missed the first 24 games of the season with foot and knee injuries dating to last season.Defensemen Petry, Victor Mete and Jordie Benn were forced to carry the load of Weber’s absence, playing 26 minutes, 40 seconds, 21:15 and 21:12, respectively.“Obviously that’s a big loss in the first period,” said Petry. “You never want to lose a guy. It’s about guys playing in different roles and playing a little more than normal. It does shake things up a little bit.”Montreal was also without forward Kenny Agostino for most of the game. Agostino was given a game misconduct just 2:28 in because of a late hit on Minnesota’s Eric Fehr, who left the game after hitting his head on the edge of the players’ bench. Fehr did not return.The depleted roster took its toll in the third period as Granlund netted his first goal since Nov. 29.“We were in it the whole time,” Julien said. “We had better scoring chances than they did. One mistake ended up costing us the game.”Carey Price stopped 24 shots for the Canadiens Edmonton Oilers Hoodies Authentic , who have dropped two in a row.With the win, the Wild have won three straight games, all on the road.“It was a fairly sloppy game overall,” Wild coach Bruce Boudreau said. “It seemed like the ice was so fast that pucks were spinning like a curling rock every time it hit somebody’s stick. The best pass was the one they gave Granlund.”Granlund scored the game’s only goal at 6:58 of the third period after pouncing on a no-look pass giveaway by Montreal defenseman Jeff Petry deep in his own zone.Granlund scored his 12th of the season when he waited out Price, who was partially blocked by players in front of the net.The Wild have won eight consecutive games against the Canadiens dating to Nov. 8, 2014. Granlund has at least a point in each of those victories.The Canadiens failed to avenge a 7-1 loss in the teams’ last meeting. It was Montreal’s worst defeat of the season.NOTES: The Wild took a season-high 23 penalty minutes in the first period. . The Canadiens announced Monday that Price will not attend the NHL All-Star Game due to “a nagging injury.” … Montreal placed defenseman David Schlemko on waivers.UP NEXTWild: At Boston on Tuesday.Canadiens: At Detroit on Tuesday. CALGARY, Alberta — The last time the Calgary Flames played the St. Louis Blues they scored four goals in the first period on their way to a convincing 7-2 road win at Enterprise Center on Sunday afternoon.Since then, the Flames (22-11-3) have dropped two straight decisions, including a hard-fought 5-4 shootout setback to the NHL-leading Tampa Bay Lightning at the Scotiabank Saddledome on Thursday.Calgary captain Mark Giordano and his teammates would like nothing more than to get back to the form they showed in St. Louis, but they know that the Blues (13-16-4) will have redemption on their minds when the two teams meet up at the Saddledome on Saturday for a rematch.Article continues below ...“Any time you play a team twice in a week, there’s usually a bit of bad blood spilling over,” said Giordano, who had a goal and an assist against the Blues on Sunday. “The fact that we did beat them in their rink, they’re going to come out hard.“They’re trying to do the same thing we are — get a big win before the break and feel good about ourselves.”Once again Edmonton Oilers Hats Authentic , the Flames and Blues will meet up for an afternoon affair before players on both teams go their separate ways for a four-day Christmas break.“You always want to go into any break feeling good,” Giordano said. “I think our team’s in a good spot, but it’s a big two points and it’s an early game, so you get up, come to the rink and play. There shouldn’t be any distractions and then we get a nice little break with our families after that.”Calgary coach Bill Peters confirmed on Friday that goalie Mike Smith will start in net against the Blues to give David Rittich, who has started Calgary’s past four games, a bit of a breather.“First time he’s been able to practice in a long time,” said Peters in regards to Smith, who has been battling an undisclosed injury. “He’s won his last six straight starts, so he’s going in (on Saturday).“I think he’s going to be dialed in and feeling really good about himself and come in and play really well (on Saturday).”Following their ugly loss at home to the Flames, the Blues bounced back with a 4-1 road win over the Edmonton Oilers two nights later before losing 5-1 in Vancouver to the Canucks on Thursday.“We took a period off and that’s the result we’re going to get, but I think there was a lot of positives out there, so we’ve just got to stay positive and be ready for Calgary,” said defenseman Joel Edmundson after the loss in Vancouver Custom Edmonton Oilers Jerseys , pointing out that the Blues had a horrible second period to let the Canucks take control of the game. “At the end of the day, when you take a period off, good teams will take advantage of that.”After an afternoon practice at the Calgary Corral on Friday, St. Louis coach Craig Berube said that one of the keys to slowing down the Flames’ offensive attack is to focus on not being careless with the puck when they have possession.“Puck possession’s really important against these guys,” Berube told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “Puck support’s really important against these guys. And blue-lines will be important. Not turning it over at the blue-lines, getting it by ’em.“They’re an aggressive hockey team. They come at you. Their ‘D’ really hold blue-lines, and they’re going to try and jam everything.”Defenseman Jay Bouwmeester, who played 279 games for the Flames from 2009 to 2013, said the Blues will definitely be gunning for revenge on Saturday afternoon.“The last game against them was pretty ugly, so we’ll have that in the back of our mind,” Bouwmeester told the Post-Dispatch.
