Al Montoya to start, plus how things might look without Alex Galchenyuk
Carey Price will sit this one out
We were all wondering how the Montreal Canadiens would line up without Alex Galchenyuk, and now we know at least how the Blues think the Habs will line up tonight.

The Blues did get one thing wrong - at least. It won’t be Carey Price starting tonight.
Al Montoya looks like he will get the start tonight against the St. Louis Blues.

Habs assistant Kirk Muller will be facing the team he coached last year.
Update: A previous version of this article thought misunderstood the initial tweet and thought this board was in the Canadiens room. It was actually in the Blues room.
It doesn’t look like we will get any update before warm up as Michel Therrien is keeping the secret by not having any line rushes.

We did see how the power play might line up, though. No Tomas Plekanec and Andrew Shaw at centre. Could we be seeing a new second line?
