Canadiens vs. Penguins: Game thread, roster, lines, and how to watch
The Habs welcome the defending Stanley Cup champions for their home opener
After earning three points in their first two games, the Montreal Canadiens will be playing their first home game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Mikhail Sergachev will return to the lineup after being a healthy scratch against the Ottawa Senators in place of Greg Pateryn. The Penguins are a tougher opponent but Michel Therrien will have the benefit of last change. Brian Flynn also draws into the lineup for Daniel Carr.
Al Montoya is set to make his third straight start. Carey Price skated with the team today but is not ready to return.
For the Penguins, they are coming off of a overtime loss to the Colorado Avalanche last night. Marc-Andre Fleury will get his second start in as many nights for Pittsburgh disappointing many who would have liked to see former Habs goaltender Mike Condon.
Game starts at 7:30 PM EDT
