The Golden Knights need a win to stay alive, and with that in mind they’ve made a change in goal. Robin Lehner is back in as the coach hopes he can have the same type of performance that got Vegas a win in Game 4.

There also appears to be a change on defence, with Nicolas Hague replacing Nick Holden on the third pairing.

The Canadiens won’t make any alterations, perfectly confident with the group that was won three games in the series so far. The only lineup news to report is that Jake Evans is out of his no-contact jersey and ready to return to action if that becomes necessary in the future, and that’s very good for the team, and especially positive news for a player with a history of concussion issues.
