UPDATE: Here are the rosters for today’s game. Crisp, Addison, Thrower and Didier are not listed. The lines above have been updated to reflect the changes.
Yesterday’s game ended 1-1 with goals from unlikely sources.
Zach Redmond opened the scoring after a beautiful individual effort. The play was started by a forechecking Artturi Lehkonen who created a turnover and got the puck to Redmond. It may have been hit in with a high stick, but the goal was allowed.
Team White would respond later in the period, but Charlie Lindgren, who started ahead of Mike Condon, made an unbelievable save.
In the second period, defenceman Phillip Samuelsson scored from the point with a lot of traffic in front of the net screening Condon.
2016 first round pick Mikhail Sergachev missed the first two scrimmages with an upper body injury. Tomas Plekanec and Max Pacioretty are back in Montreal and will undergo medical testing Monday and will be back on the ice on Tuesday following the World Cup of Hockey.
Andrei Markov and Alexei Emelin who were eliminated last night in the semi-final should be following a similar schedule.
