Montreal Canadiens vs. Vegas Golden Knights

How to watch

Start time: 7:00 PM EDT / 4:00 PM PDT
In Canada: CityTV (English), TVA Sports (French)
In the Golden Knights region: ATTSN Rocky Mountain

There are a few lineup changes for the Canadiens tonight after the team has gone winless in its past two games. Mike Hoffman gets place back in the formation, though on the the third line with Jonathan Drouin and Sean Monahan. Martin St-Louis will be expecting a better performance from the sniper after a couple of games in the press box.

For the first time all season, one of the four rookies on defence will sit, and it’s Johnny Kovacevic who makes way for Chris Wideman to rotate back in. We may see the others taking their turns for a night off in the coming games as the coach tries to keep everyone fresh

The Habs are facing one of their toughest opponents yet, the Vegas Golden Knights, who are up to 20 points already, nearly double Montreal’s total. The top line of Chandler Stephenson, Jack Eichel, and Mark Stone will be of most concern for the Canadiens, and the Habs will have to find a way to outproduce whatever those three can muster.
