It was a full roster at practice, except for the two injured players, Nikita Nesterov and Brian Flynn.
The top nine forwards remained unchanged, with Alex Galchenyuk on the left wing, alongside Andrew Shaw and Artturi Lehkonen. Dwight King took Andreas Martinsen’s spot on the fourth line. King has definitely struggled since his arrival to Montreal, whereas Martinsen has looked good in his very limited time on ice.
As for the defensive setup, Nathan Beaulieu was added back into the six regulars, whereas Brandon Davidson was practicing as an extra defender.
