The Canadiens announced both Andrew Shaw and Alex Galchenyuk will play on Saturday night versus the Rangers.

The two players has been out of the line up due to injury since early December. Alex Galchenyuk suffered a lower-body injury (knee) and Andrew Shaw has recovered from a concussion.
We're at the six week mark for both Galchenyuk and Desharnais injuries.— Amanda Stein (@amandacstein) January 14, 2017
Galchenyuk back on the top line with Pacioretty and Radulov tonight
Danault - after doing a formidable job on the 1st line - will play with Byron on Shaw on the third line.— Amanda Stein (@amandacstein) January 14, 2017
Despite losing a plethora of important players, the Canadiens have put together an encouraging effort in the past month. The return of Galchenyuk and Shaw bodes quite well for the team moving forward.
