Canadiens vs. Flyers Game thread, rosters, lines, and how to watch

Can the Canadiens bounce back from a 10-0 loss last night?

After two terrible games in a row, can the Montreal Canadiens match the middling Philadelphia Flyers?

The Canadiens are going into tonight’s game coming off last night’s debacle of a 10-0 shutout loss. The Habs will make at least one lineup change with Carey Price getting the start in the second half of the back-to-back set.

The Habs have struggled the past two games and this has led to Michel Therrien juggling lines. That said, they are still 9-1-1, and will hopefully not make it three brutal performances in a row. You should expect some shake-ups in personnel, but with the team not skating today, it is hard to say if Daniel Carr and/or Joel Hanley will be among the 18 skaters.

UPDATE: No changes to the lineup

On the other side, the Flyers are 6-5-1 and are welcoming back defenceman Michael Del Zotto at the expense of Andrew MacDonald. Philadelphia’s lineup features teenagers Travis Konecny and Ivan Provorov as well as former Hab Mark Streit. Goalie Michal Neuvirth is expected to get the start.

Game is at 7:00 pm EDT / 4:00 PM PDT
