The decision was made even before last night’s game that Joel Edmundson was only going to play the first match of this weekend’s back-to-back. With news that Kale Clague had to be placed on Injured Reserve yesterday, the Canadiens intercepted Corey Schueneman mid-demotion to bring him back to the team for the game in Philadelphia.

Schueneman has fared well in his eight games at the NHL level, currently around even in all possession and scoring-chance metrics. He’s proving himself to be a good depth piece for the organization, and that will prevent the club from having to acquire a defenceman following the trade-deadline dealings to get the team to the end of the season.

The players are hoping to end the year on a high note, and that means having fewer of the long losing streaks they experienced in the first portion of the season. Right now the string of losses is at two, with the play beginning to slip a bit from what we saw during the winning streak. A game versus a Flyers team that has just three wins since the All-Star break is a good chance to get the Habs back to their winning ways (while still staying in last place in the standings).
