After two pre-season games, you could argue that the lineup picture is even more muddled than it was a few days ago. So many players have stepped up in the two games that it has made separating from the pack impossible.

Ahead of their game against the Florida Panthers on Thursday, the Canadiens had morning skate and revealed the lineup they will be using.

Max Domi and Artturi Lehkonen will be in the lineup, and will be joined by Brendan Gallagher given Jonathan Drouin went to New Brunswick. Shea Weber and Victor Mete also return to the lineup.

Nick Suzuki will be playing with Jordan Weal and Paul Byron in what is a line that could start the NHL season.

It is another game for the Brett Kulak and Josh Brook pairing. Phil Varone fills Nick Cousins’s spot from Monday’s game.

UPDATE: Maxim Lamarche and Alex Belzile will be in the lineup.

It appears that Carey Price is expected to play all 60 minutes.

The game at the Bell Centre gets underway at 7:00 p.m. Game thread to come later today.
