The Montreal Canadiens were back to practice on Tuesday, and there were some changes to the forward lines.

Nick Suzuki was once again with Artturi Lehkonen and Max Domi as his play continues to improve and he is getting rewarded for it. Nick Cousins was also moved up to play with Jesperi Kotkaniemi and Jonathan Drouin. That leaves Paul Byron and Jordan Weal to play with Nate Thompson on the fourth line.

Joel Armia, who was scratched prior to the game against the St. Louis Blues is still not on the ice, missing practice.

On defence, all eight players were on the ice but there was not any immediate word as to the pairings or how the team will lineup on Thursday when they host the San Jose Sharks.

It does mean that Cale Fleury is good to go after missing one game with a minor injury. Fleury played the team’s last game against the Minnesota Wild.
