Newly acquired Vanek joins the team tonight, as Montreal looks to win it's second straight game versus a Western Conference opponent. It's unsure what the lineup will look like, and we won't know until the pre-game warm up.
Eller might sit again, however it's likely that George Parros slots out in favour of the newly acquired Vanek. While you're waiting for the game to start you can read up on the implications of Vanek on the roster.
Mike Weaver is expected to jump into the roster as well, due to Josh Gorges returning to Montreal to get further evaluation on his fractured hand.
Budaj gets the start tonight, after getting a break last night during Tokarski's first NHL win in a Habs jersey.
Puck drop is at 9:00 PM.
