Montreal Canadiens vs. Nashville Predators

How to watch

Start time: 7:00 PM EST / 4:00 PM PST
In Canadiens: TSN2 (English), RDS (French)
In the Predators region: Bally Sports South

Before tonight’s game there will be a ceremony to honour P.K. Subban for his years spent with the Montreal Canadiens. It was a tenure that included many memorable moments, perhaps chief among them a playoff goal versus the Boston Bruins as he came out of the penalty box and received one of the loudest cheers the Bell Centre has ever heard, He was also the last Habs skater to win an individual trophy at season’s end, claiming the Norris Trophy in the summer of 2013.

There will be a hockey game to be played between the Habs and another of his former teams, the Nashville Predators, afterward, It will find the Canadiens looking for their first goal in two games after a shutout at the hands (or tentacles) of the Seattle Kraken on Monday.

Jesse Ylönen has been recalled from the AHL for the game, but is currently listed on a two-man line with Jonathan Drouin as Martin St-Louis opts for a seven-defenceman alignment to get Justin Barron some time. It probably means little five-on-five ice time for the young Finn, but perhaps we can see him if the Habs receive any power-play opportunities.
