The Habs have announced that goaltender Ben Scrivens will get the start tonight versus the Dallas Stars.
As for the forwards, there was some worry that both Lars Eller and Alex Galchenyuk would be unavailable tonight, however they hit the ice at practice, which leads us to believe they should be on the roster.

UPDATE: Eller will not play, as he's been ruled out with a lower-body injury. Lucas Lessio will draw in instead.

As for the injured players, Brendan Gallagher will miss the game tonight, whereas Stefan Matteau skated without his full face mask for the first time as a member of the Canadiens, and Nathan Beaulieu skated alone before the main group practiced.
