Canadiens vs. Bruins Game Thread, roster, lines, and how to watch

The Habs face their rivals in Quebec City tonight

Five down, two to go. The Canadiens are in action tonight versus their longtime rivals the Boston Bruins. It'll be Montreal's sixth preseason game, and with only one other matchup left on the books they'll be looking to solidify their strategies and iron out any wrinkles before the games start to matter.

Shea Weber and Carey Price are back from the World Cup, and joined the team at practice today, however they will not take part in the game tonight.

How to Watch

Puck drop: 7:00 PM ET in Quebec City

In the Canadiens region (French): RDS

Mikhail Sergachev has been told he's going to play both remaining preseason games, which means all eyes will be on the young defender. In other camp battles, Artturi Lehkonen will look to build on a very strong training camp, to solidify his spot on the Canadiens' roster. The same can be said for Daniel Carr, who might be on the outside looking in despite the fact that he's played quite well.
