Avalanche try to get back on track against a Habs team flying high after a convincing win over the Bruins

Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports

The Avalanche without their number 1 (Varlamov) and number 2 (Berra) goalies limp into Montreal with a cast of Habs retreads and see-you-laters! Calvin Pickard gets his first career start in Montreal so that should be a wonderful baptism of fire.

The Habs start the same line-up that posted a convincing 6-4 win over the Bruins on Wednesday night. No changes for Montreal.

Puck drop is at 7:00 PM ET. It will be carried on City TV (Canada), TVA (French - Habs Region), Altitude (Colorado), NHL Network (Everywhere Else).
