A night after a spirited game versus the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Montreal Canadiens have already made the flight to Newark for a second game in 24 hours. There will be some new faces along for the ride as Jesse Ylönen has been recalled after a couple of injuries yesterday, and will be getting another game for the Habs as neither Tyler Pitlick nor Michael Pezzetta is able to play after leaving last night’s match early.

The club will also be scooping up Jordan Harris at some point along the way after he signed his entry-level deal yesterday. Tonight, however, we will be seeing Justin Barron enter the lineup for his first game in a Canadiens jersey, and it will be fun to see how his offensive game injects into the Habs’ current high-tempo style.

Jake Allen gets a well-deserved night off after facing 139 shots in three games played this week. It’s Samuel Montembeault who gets the call for this game, trying to continue the great play between the pipes.
