BUFFALO, New York (Ticker) -- The Montreal Canadiens look to avoid matching their longest losing streak of the season on Tuesday when they visit the Buffalo Sabres.

The Canadiens have been outscored, 6-1, in consecutive losses to the New Jersey Devils and Toronto Maple Leafs and are trying to avoid losing three in a row for the first time since November 1-7. They also dropped three straight from October 25-28.

Richard Zednik scored his team-leading 18th goal 9:25 into the second period, but Montreal allowed three answered goals in the period and another in the third.

Buffalo finished a five-game road trip on a high note Sunday with a 4-2 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes. Jochen Hecht scored twice and Martin Biron made 37 saves for the Sabres, who were 2-3-0 on the trip and are 5-1-2 in their last eight home games.

Buffalo was 4-1-0 against the Canadiens in 2002-03, but has dropped two of three meetings this season.
