We learned today that Ryan Poehling is out for an indeterminate period of time with an injury following the last game, taking one of the Canadiens’ centremen out of action. His absence has led to the recall of Jesse Ylönen, who may be in the lineup tonight versus the team his father, Juha, played the majority of his NHL career with.

Ben Chiarot won’t be in the lineup, a management decision that is clearly to prevent an injury ahead of a trade. It sounds like Chiarot has played his final game for the team before heading to Stanley Cup contender in the coming days.
