Montreal Canadiens @ Ottawa Senators

How to watch

Start time: 7:00 PM EST / 4:00 PM PST
In Canada: CBC, CityTV, Sportsnet, Sportsnet Now (English), TVA Sports (French)
Streaming: NHL.tv/NHL Live

Brendan Gallagher is out of tonight’s lineup, dealing with headaches after playing his first game on Thursday since being sidelined with a concussion. Ben Chiarot, who sat out the previous game versus Edmonton, is also out once more.

There is one player making his return to the lineup tonight, as Matthew Peca draws back in for the first time since December 10. The Canadiens will once again shuffle the deck trying to come up with four forward lines to take on the opposition.

Tonight that’s a game on the road versus Mikey Reilly and the Ottawa Senators. The former Habs defender left one team mired in a losing streak to join another, as the Senators are winless in six during the same span that encompasses Montreal’s eight-game skid.

The clubs clash tonight in a match showcased from coast to coast as the only primetime game in Canada. Viewers will be in for a real treat as they will see one of these lengthy streaks come to an end.
