The Boston Bruins get right back in the saddle after a loss to the Buffalo Sabres last night. The team will send out the same lineup from that contest — one missing the likes of Patrice Bergeron and Zdeno Chara — for tonight’s meeting at the Bell Centre.

There will be a change in net, as Jaroslav Halak takes over from Tuukka Rask, looking for his first victory over the Canadiens with his newest team.

Fortunately for Montreal, a goaltending change isn’t necessary after Carey Price was knocked down by the stick of Brady Tkachuk in the first period of Saturday’s game. Down on the ice for a few moments afterward, and checking in with the trainer during a stoppage, it appears that there are no lingering effects. He’ll be going for the 300th win of his career tonight, versus the same team he beat to pass Patrick Roy on the franchise wins list earlier this season.

Montreal makes one lineup change, replacing Jordie Benn with David Schlemko. The forwards once again hold formation after several good outings in recent weeks, looking for another solid offensive showing versus a division rival.
