When the Montreal Canadiens beat the Los Angeles Kings on November 10, it was probably their best win of the season. They were dominant for long stretches and outshot one of the West’s playoff teams. The Habs look to recapture that form in order to end their annual California nightmare with a dream win.
No changes are expected to the Habs lineup, but they will continue forth with the four-forward setup on the power play. The lack of changes to the lineup confirms that the Habs got very lucky with Alexander Radulov after he took a high stick to the eye area against the San Jose Sharks.
On the Kings side of the coin, Jeff Carter will be playing in this game after he missed the first matchup against the Habs with an injury. Habs fans can also look forward to seeing a familiar face in goal, as former Hab Peter Budaj has been the de facto starter for the Kings since Jonathan Quick went down with an injury.
