Daniel Carr to return to Habs lineup

The forward would replace the injured Artturi Lehkonen

It looks as though the Montreal Canadiens forward Daniel Carr will return to the Habs lineup for the first time since the second game of the season.

Carr skated with the power play units during the team’s morning skate in Brossard, but the team did not have line rushes so there was no clue as to where they would be playing.

The fact that Shaw was listed as on the first power play unit means it is likely that he takes Artturi Lehkonen’s spot on that line and Carr would slide in with David Desharnais and Paul Byron, however, Shaw has had power play time despite playing on the third line at even strength.

Update: We were wrong.

It does look like Sven Andrighetto, who was recalled yesterday, will be a healthy scratch tonight against the Boston Bruins. There has been no confirmation of lineup changes yet. Carey Price should get the start.
