With Kirk Muller taking over head coaching duties while Claude Julien recuperates at home in Montreal, there could be some lineup decisions for the temporary bench boss right off the bat.

In Game 1 we saw Max Domi moved up from the centre of the fourth line to play the wing on the third, and that could be an experiment the team wants to keep running. Should they do so, the fourth line will need a new centreman, and that would have to come from one of the Black Aces. Will Jordan Weal take on that role? Will Ryan Poehling get his first NHL playoff game under his belt? Or will the Habs simply run with the same lineup they had to begin Game 1, with adjustments made as the game unfolds? We’ll find out the answers to those questions when the players take to the ice shortly.

UPDATE: It’s Jake Evans who gets the call among the centre-winger options, replacing Dale Weise in the lineup.
