Can Montreal build some momentum coming off a shutout win vs the Hurricanes?
Montreal won the first meeting of the eternal rivals 2-1. However they've definitely hit a rough patch ever since. Boston on the other hand is playing quite well and have gone 6-3-1 in their last 10, including their current 4 game winning streak.
The last 14 of 16 games these clubs have played against each other have resulted in a one goal game. The other two games included an empty net goal.
Louis Leblanc was sent back to Hamilton a couple days ago, and there were rumours that Christian Thomas would be called up, however he was not. He also stayed behind in Hamilton instead of joining the Bulldogs for a road-trip, which definitely makes it sound like there are some impending roster moves.
Puck drop is at 7:00 PM at the TD Garden.
Here are your projected lineups:
|Michael Bournival||Tomas Plekanec||Brian Gionta|
|Max Pacioretty||David Desharnais||Brendan Gallagher|
|Rene Bourque||Lars Eller||Brandon Prust|
|Travis Moen||Daniel Briere||George Parros|
|Josh Gorges||P.K. Subban|
