Habs lines at practice: Alex Galchenyuk back at centre

New, comments

The talented forward is no longer anchored to the fourth line wing.

NHL: Montreal Canadiens at Florida Panthers Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

The Canadiens practiced ahead of their game three matchup with the New York Rangers. Fortunately skilled forward Alex Galchenyuk is no longer on the fourth line, and he’s back to the centre position.

It also seems as if Torrey Mitchell will replace Andreas Martinsen on the fourth line.

As for the defensive pairings, things appeared to remain the same.

Although it wouldn’t be surprising if Brandon Davidson checks in for Nikita Nesterov, seeing as they’re both rotating alongside Nathan Beaulieu.

Update: Davidson will play.

In other news, Alexei Emelin practiced in Brossard this morning.
