Brett Kulak appears to be back in the Montreal Canadiens lineup, as he took a regular spot at morning skate on Saturday.

Jon Merrill was not at morning skate. He finished Game 5, but had been shaken up early in the game. Kulak took his spot in practice next to Erik Gustafsson, meaning Alexander Romanov once again appears to be the odd man out.
Merrill’s last shift came with over six minutes remaining in the third period and he played only 9:18.
Dominique Ducharme says Brett Kulak is in for Jon Merrill, who's out a week or two with an injury. Still some decisions to make at forward. Assume that means Jake Evans might be available.— Eric Engels (@EricEngels) May 29, 2021
At forward, the lines appeared to be the same at morning skate as they were in Game 5. The only change is that Jake Evans skated with his teammates for the first time since suffering an undisclosed injury in Game 1.
