As the regular season inches closer, the Tampa Bay Lightning pay a visit to the Bell Centre in Montreal to face off against the Canadiens.

The Canadiens, who have dropped three straight pre-season contests, will ice a lineup comprised of a majority of their opening night roster to face the Lightning.

One of the players still trying to earn a regular season spot is 19-year-old forward Brendan Gallagher. He has impressed during camp and will skate in tonight's game on the second line with Max Pacioretty and Scott Gomez.

The Delta, B.C. native told a Montreal newspaper that he feels playing with NHL-caliber players has already had a positive effect on his game.

"I think the best way to develop is to be around the best players," Gallagher told the Montreal Gazette. "For me to get better in this organization, there are a lot of role models here. Being here, I feel I'm developing. Just since the start of camp, I feel I'm a better player."

The club has until the end of their training camp to sign him to a contract.

Veteran defenceman Chris Campoli will make his Canadiens debut in a defensive pairing with Josh Gorges.

The 27-year-old Mississauga, Ontario native signed a one-year deal with Montreal on Monday.

Ryan Malone will also be making his pre-season debut for the Lightning.

The 31-year-old rugged forward played in 54 games last season finishing with 14 goals and 24 assists.

The Lightning won their last pre-season contest Saturday night against the Florida Panthers.

I don't know their whole defence lineup but they will have to deal with the Habs top twelve.Bournival with Engqvist and Blunden is a pretty solid fourth line.All of our rookies are pretty good,Diaz,Yemelin,Gallagher,Campoli and the 4th line.Should make for an interesting game and I forgot Budaj so there is eight new faces in our lineup.
