Just minutes into their game with the Vancouver Canucks, the Montreal Canadiens lost Brian Flynn to injury.

The Canadiens were already down two forwards going into the game, as Alexander Radulov and Tomas Plekanec did not dress. As a result of the injuries, the Habs had just 11 forwards for the balance of the game, and the depth that Marc Bergevin had built up at the deadline has been tested, with the team potentially down from a glut of 15 to just 12.

Depending on the severity of the injuries, the Habs may need to fly a forward out from St. John’s to join them on their Western Canadian road trip.
