The Ottawa Senators set the tone on the first of three consecutive games against the Montreal Canadiens. Ottawa scored early and handed Montreal a 5-4 loss in the final pre-season contest at the Bell Centre Tuesday night. Alex DeBrincat, Claude Giroux and Shane Pinto each collected one goal and one assist for the winners, while teammates Tyler Motte and Brady Tkachuk added goals. Mathieu Joseph recorded two assists. Nick Suzuki earned one assist in his first game as the 31st captain in Canadiens history. The centre, who played alongside Cole Caufield and Juraj Slafkovsky, missed the start of pre-season with a lower-body injury. Joel Armia and David Savard levelled the score in the second period while Caufield and Arber Xhekaj scored in the third for the Habs who are still winless (0-6) in pre-season. Anton Forsberg allowed four goals and made 20 saves for Ottawa, while Samuel Montembeault blocked 18 shots and conceded five goals in the Montreal net.
