Coming off of their 4-0 win against the Boston Blades on Saturday night, Les Canadiennes are looking to make it two in a row on Sunday afternoon.
The game was originally scheduled for 1:30 p.m. but was rescheduled to 2:00 p.m. due to the Montreal Canadiens practice earlier in the morning at the Complexe Bell in Brossard.
Les Canadiennes kept pace with the Brampton Thunder who sit two points ahead of them for second place in the CWHL. Montreal has four games in hand on them, however.
Saturday's game was a sell out, so if you are planning to attend Sunday's game, you should get there early. The game will not be streamed. Tickets are $15.
I would expect Charline Labonté (7-1, 1.50 GAA, .916 sv%) and Genevieve Lacasse (1-16, 4.16 GAA, .918 sv%) to get the starts in goal. Labonté only faced 12 shots on Saturday and Lacasse has played every game for the Blades. If Labonté doesn't start, Sydney Aveson (2-1, 2.04 GAA, .898 sv%) is Montreal's backup.
With an assist on Saturday, Marie-Philip Poulin has moved into sole possession of the CWHL scoring lead. She has 20 points despite playing only nine games this season.
For Boston, their leading scorer is forward Erin Kickham who has seven points this season. She is trailed closely by Canadian Olympic Team member Tara Watchorn who has six points.

This will be Montreal's final home game until the end of January. The next two weeks feature road trips to Toronto and Boston which leads into the CWHL's all-star weekend. Les Canadiennes will host the first place Calgary Inferno on January 30-31.
