Habs lines & news: Alex Galchenyuk did not practice
The Canadiens practiced ahead of their match up versus the Islanders
Here are the latest lines from practice for the Montreal Canadiens. You’ll notice that Alex Galchenyuk did not take part in the morning skate, which indicates that he’s at risk of missing the game against the New York Islanders.

Carr-De La Rose-Mitchell
Some positive news on the injury front was the presence of David Desharnais, who took some line rushes with the fourth trio.
On the defensive side of things we saw no changes, with the pairings staying identical to their deployment versus Calgary.
There’s no word yet which goalie will face the Islanders, although considering it’s the last Habs game until we hit the All-Star weekend, don’t be surprised if Carey Price gets the start.
