BLUE JACKETS (18-27-5) at CANADIENS (24-21-4)


Montreal Canadiens forward Daniel Carr won't play against Columbus Blue Jackets at Bell Centre on Tuesday.
Carr sustained a lower-body injury after he was hit by Blue Jackets defenseman Fedor Tyutin during the first period of Montreal's 5-2 loss in Columbus on Monday.
He left after the first period and Canadiens coach Michel Therrien said after the game Carr would not be available Tuesday.

Neither team held a morning skate Tuesday.

Montreal, which won 3-2 in a shootout at the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday, has not won consecutive games since a four-game winning streak from Nov. 22-27, and has not won in regulation in seven games (1-5-1) since a 2-1 win against the New Jersey Devils on Jan. 6.

"We've got to play better (Tuesday)," captain Max Pacioretty said Monday. "We really need to play for 60 minutes and get the 'W' before we go into the (All-Star) break. Everyone's frustrated with the way tonight's game went."

Montreal goalie Ben Scrivens will get his first start at home after Mike Condon made his third consecutive start Monday.

Blue Jackets associate coach Craig Hartsburg will be in charge behind the bench for a third straight game. Hartsburg is 1-0-1 while assuming coaching duties since coach John Tortorella was injured during an outdoor practice Friday.

Tortorella sustained two broken ribs after forward Rene Bourque hit a rut and collided with him during a drill.

The projected lineup:

Max Pacioretty - Tomas Plekanec - Brendan Gallagher

Alex Galchenyuk - David Desharnais - Dale Weise

Tomas Fleischmann - Lars Eller - Jacob De La Rose

Brian Flynn - Torrey Mitchell - Devante Smith-Pelly

P.K. Subban - Andrei Markov

Alexei Emelin - Jeff Petry

Nathan Beaulieu - Mark Barberio

Ben Scrivens

Mike Condon

Injured: Daniel Carr (lower body), Carey Price (lower body), Paul Byron (lower body)

Scratched: Greg Pateryn, Tom Gilbert

Status report: Subban had a goal and an assist Monday after missing the morning skate because of illness. He extended his consecutive games played streak to 255.

Who's hot: Atkinson scored his third NHL hat trick Monday. Dubinsky and Jenner assisted on each of Atkinson's three goals. Saad scored twice, including his fourth game-winning goal. Subban has 11 points (three goals, eight assists) in his past 12 games.

I could see a scenario unfolding where Montreal doesn't have a shot on goal for the first 7 or 8 minutes and the boos are raining down.

Or they give up the first goal in the first couple of minutes.
