Canadiens vs. Senators: Game thread, rosters, lines, and how to watch

Habs will try to extend their lead on the Sens even further in the standings.

NHL: Ottawa Senators at Montreal Canadiens Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports

The Montreal Canadiens and the Ottawa Senators are at it again, less than 24 hours after the Habs earned statement win over their divisional foes. This game is the second of three games in eight days between the two teams, who are still battling for top spot in the Atlantic Division.

Both teams showed a playoff mentality last game, playing a tight checking hockey game with solid pace. We should expect a similarly close game once again, as both teams will look to earn a victory within their respective systems.

Craig Anderson will start in goal again for the Senators, while Carey Price starts a second game in two nights as well. There will be no lineup changes for the Senators, while the Canadiens will make a couple.

Alexei Emelin will return to the lineup, as will Michael McCarron. Steve Ott and Brandon Davidson will be healthy scratches.
