Out since March 17, Brendan Gallagher makes his way back into the Montreal Canadiens’ lineup tonight. He knocks Tyler Pitlick out of the formation, which so far has no other alterations from the one that beat the Tampa Bay Lightning in a shootout on Saturday.

The opponent tonight has loaded up its top six with its best offensive players, as Mathieu Joseph gets promoted to the top line after an excellent debut with his new club. The Laval native will be eager to continue his top form versus his hometown team, and he and linemates are sure to provide a stern test for Montreal’s young group of defencemen.
