There are so many storylines for tonight's matchup between Vancouver and Montreal that it's difficult to know where to start. Two struggling Canadian teams meet at the Bell Centre in the Habs' second last game before the Olympic break, both desperate to grab two points to stay in the mix for the playoffs.
The two contenders for the starting job in goal for Canada face off, as Luongo gets a chance to get back at Price for beating him and his team back in October.
Add to that, the recently traded Diaz and Weise playing their former teams already, and we have an intense matchup ahead of us.
Puck drop is at 7:30 PM at the Bell Centre.
Here are your projected lineups:
|Daniel Briere||Tomas Plekanec||Brian Gionta|
|Max Pacioretty||David Desharnais||Brendan Gallagher|
|Rene Bourque||Lars Eller||Brandon Prust|
|Michael Bournival||Ryan White||Dale Weise|
|Josh Gorges||P.K. Subban|
|Andrei Markov||Alexei Emelin|
