  Canadiens will open 2021-22 season on Oct. 13 against Leafs in Toronto The NHL released its 2021-22 schedule on Thursday evening and the Canadiens will open with a two-game road trip to Toronto and Buffalo.

The Kraken will play their first ever game at the Bell Centre on March 12. The schedule includes two five-game road trips — Jan. 17-24 and Feb.

New York City made another early strike at the beginning of the second half. In the 49th minute, Moralez earned an assist with a pass inside the box to Tajouri-Shradi, who blasted a strong shot past Montreal goalkeeper Evan Bush. Tajouri-Shradi leads all New York City FC players with three goals this season. Montreal was outshot 13-8 and didn't record a shot on goal, as the club ' s attack continues to be inconsistent without injured star Ignacio Piatti. NYCFC goalkeeper Sean Johnson recorded his fifth clean sheet in 10 starts this season. Clement Bayiha and Bacary Sagna weren't in

Ismael Tajouri-Shradi’s goal in the 29th minute proved to be the difference, as New York City FC ended a two-game losing skid with a 1-0 victory Wednesday night at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, N.J.

The defeat ended CF Montréal’s six-game unbeaten streak, and the team’s record dropped to 6-4-4. CFM last lost on May 22. NYCFC improved to 6-5-2. It marked the second time in two weeks the teams met, CFM scoring a come-from-behind 2-1 victory on July 7.

CF Montréal manager Wilfried Nancy not concerned by sporadic offensive production

  CF Montréal manager Wilfried Nancy not concerned by sporadic offensive production One week after exploding for a season-high five goals against FC Cincinnati, would it be premature to suggest CF Montréal’s offensive shortcomings have again come to the surface? When CFM was blanked, 1-0, by New York City FC last Wednesday night, it marked the fifth time in 14 games this season the Canadian side has been shut out. At least some of that damage has been minimized, considering two of those matches ended in 0-0 draws. “This is what When CFM was blanked, 1-0, by New York City FC last Wednesday night, it marked the fifth time in 14 games this season the Canadian side has been shut out.

Striker Bjørn Johnsen returned to the starting lineup for CFM, getting the nod over Mason Toye. In another surprising personnel move, attacking midfielder Djordje Mihailovic started the game on the bench, although he replaced Joaquin Torres in the 60th minute.

Although NYCFC normally plays at Yankee Stadium, that facility was being used Wednesday night by the Yankees, hosting the Philadelphia Phillies. So the match had to be moved to New Jersey — the same venue that hosted CF Montréal through the latter stages of last season.

While the visitors were the more dangerous club over the opening half, and enjoyed a considerable edge in possession, they lacked finish around the net. Conversely, NYCFC took advantage of CFM’s numerous mistakes.

CF Montréal laments what could have been in loss to powerful Revolution

  CF Montréal laments what could have been in loss to powerful Revolution Glass half-full or half-empty? On this night, it would have been easy for CF Montréal to consider both parts of the equation. Facing its most challenging test of the Major League Soccer season, the visitors showed they could play with the New England Revolution, one of the elite Major League Soccer sides. Playing on the road against the Eastern Conference leaders — a team that has been nearly invincible on the turf at Gillette Stadium — CFM dropped a 2-1 decision before 18,217 spectators in Foxborough, Mass. CF Montréal enjoyed a wide edge in possession (58.8 per cent) and peppered goalkeeper Brad Knighton — replacing regular Matt Turner, representing the U.S.

New York City FC . Montreal . The duo of James Sands and Sean Johnson are with the US squad for the Gold Cup and miss out here. The trio of Pietter, Miller and Quioto are all away on international duty during the Gold Cup and will be absent for Montreal this week. First choice goalkeeper Clement Diop has a leg injury and will be out for several weeks. Montreal continue to miss Tabla as his groin injury continues to flare up .

Canadian defender Joel Waterman, in particular, struggled early with the ball at his feet. It was quite apparent the team sorely missed starting defenders Kamal Miller, representing Canada at the Gold Cup, and Kiki Struna, who reportedly is in quarantine but is scheduled to resume training on Thursday.

Johnsen had the game’s first good scoring opportunity in the ninth minute, but his left-footer from the top of the box deflected off the top of the bar.

NYCFC came close in the 16th. Valentin Castellanos, from the top of the box, directed a low shot, forcing goalkeeper James Pantemis into making a stretching stop with his left arm. Castellanos scored four goals early this season, but has failed to find the back of the net since May 8.

The home side opened the scoring on what appeared to be an innocuous play. It started with a long ball from ‘keeper Luis Barraza. The ball bounced and went over Canadian defender Zorhan Bassong, who was guilty of weak marking. It went to Tajouri-Shradi, who chipped the ball over Pantemis.

CF Montréal players relish return to Saputo Stadium

The absences of Miller and Struna were never more evident. It marked the third successive contest in which CFM has surrendered the opening goal.

Three minutes later, Jesus Medina had a glorious opportunity from the top of the six-yard box that went over the bar or CF Montréal would have been facing a two-goal deficit.

Late in the half, following another Waterman turnover, he was booked, forced to make a tackle to recover from his error. CFM manager Wilfried Nancy fell to his knees in disbelief, slamming the pitch with his fists, undoubtedly indicating his displeasure with Waterman.

Early in the second half, Johnsen appeared to tie the score, capping a solo effort with a low shot to the far side. But he failed to beat NYCFC’s offside trap. In the 56th, Tajouri-Shradi banged a shot off the bar.

Desperately seeking some offence, Nancy made two substitutions in the 71st, inserting both Toye, the team’s leading scorer this season, and Lassi Lappalainen, but to no avail.

CFM, in the midst of three straight road games, next meets New England Sunday night.
