Canadiens lines, October 18: Brian Flynn to make season debut
This is how the Habs will likely line up against the Penguins
The Montreal Canadiens had their morning skate, and there appears to be a slight change from yesterday.
Brian Flynn seems to be replacing Daniel Carr in the lineup. Flynn will go to the fourth line, while Paul Byron will take Carr’s spot with David Desharnais and Andrew Shaw.

The first two lines were unchanged.
#Habs D & G vs #Penguins:— John Lu (@JohnLuTSNMtl) October 18, 2016
Beaulieu - Weber
Markov - Petry
Emelin - Sergachev
Scratches: Carr, Pateryn, Redmond
As expected, Mikhail Sergachev will play and skated with Alexei Emelin. It will be his first home NHL game, and his family has flown in from Russia.
This will be Brian Flynn’s first game of the season. He spent the first two games of the season as an healthy scratch. Zach Redmond will be scratched for a third straight game. Greg Pateryn, like Carr will be sitting out his first game of the season.
