For the third and final time this season, the Montreal Canadiens are taking on the Carolina Hurricanes, looking for their first win. They’re also looking for just their second goal after being shut down in the previous two meetings, but it has now been a long time — February 12, which was Martin St. Louis’s second game as head coach — since the Canadiens scored fewer than two goals.

They won’t be facing Jesperi Kotkaniemi again after a rare fit of madness from Lars Eller at the very end of a recent game knocked him out of action. They will, however, be facing one former Hab in Max Domi after he was a deadline acquisition from the Columbus Blue Jackets.

There’s excellent news on Montreal’s side as Jake Evans is able to play. He came close to sustaining a terrible injury when he went into the end boards versus the Panthers, but it turns out he was just completely winded on the play and is good to go tonight.
