Canadiens vs Flames game thread

Canadiens head into Calgary looking to get things back on track after being shutout 3-0 by Ben Scrivens and the Edmonton Oilers.

Rolling into Calgary after a disappointing loss to the Oilers at Rexall Place, you have to expect that there will be some changes to the Canadiens' lineup. At this point it's all just speculation, but I envision Beaulieu coming out in favour of Tinordi. Beyond that, it's anyone's best guess. I'll keep you updated as I find out more or you'll keep me updated - whatever works!

Calgary loses Mason Raymond to a shoulder injury, but David Jones comes back to the fold for only his second game of the season. Former Canadien Raphael Diaz rides the pine, as does Brian McGrattan and Devin Setoguchi.

Calgary is coming off a 3-1 loss  to Washington on Saturday night. Jonas Hillier will supplant former Habs property, Karri Ramo, in net.

Update: Looks like two changes for the Habs and ones I already projected below - Carey Price in, Tokarski out (obvs.) and Tinordi in and Beaulieu out.

Puck drop is at 9:00 PM ET.  You can watch:
