Habs lines at practice: Davidson replaces Emelin, Radulov still injured
Claude Julien decided to shuffle his defensive pairings
Following a 4-1 drubbing of the New York Rangers, Claude Julien did not make many changes to his forward lineup. Alex Radulov missed practice yet again, and Tomas Plekanec was also absent.

Pacioretty – Danault - Gallagher
King – Galchenyuk – Lehkonen
Byron – Mitchell - Shaw
Martinsen – Ott – Flynn
Things got interesting on the defensive side of things, with newcomer Brandon Davidson replacing Alexei Emelin on the second pair, alongside Jeff Petry.
Nathan Beaulieu practiced with Jordie Been, whereas Emelin found himself on the fourth pairing with Nikita Nesterov.
