After missing the last game versus the Minnesota Wild, both Jonathan Drouin and Shea Weber will be in the lineup versus the Buffalo Sabres.
Here are the lines and defence pairing that participated in drills this morning:
#Habs lineup vs #Sabres:— John Lu (@JohnLuTSNMtl) November 11, 2017
Galchenyuk - Drouin - Lehkonen
Pacioretty - Danault - Shaw
Byron - Plekanec - Gallagher
Hudon - De La Rose - Froese
Benn - Weber
Alzner - Petry
Mete - Morrow
Drouin reclaims the spot between Alex Galchenyuk and Artturi Lehkonen, while it seems Weber will be playing alongside Jordie Benn tonight.
Despite a good game in his last outing, Torrey Mitchell will be left in the press box tonight.
In net, Lindgren gets another start, as both Carey Price and Al Montoya are out with injuries. To make room for a recall of Zachary Fucale, Price has been placed on IR.
#Habs Price has been placed on IR to open up a roster spot for Fucale, who replaces Montoya (UBI). Price would eligible to play next Tuesday if he’s ready.— John Lu (@JohnLuTSNMtl) November 11, 2017
Drouin and Weber take spots on the first power-play unit, while Jeff Petry quarterbacks Galchenyuk and Brendan Gallagher on the second wave.
