Pittsburgh Penguins (2-0-1) at Montreal Canadiens (1-0-1)

TV: SN360, TVA Sports

7:30pm

The Canadiens open their 2016-17 home season against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday.

Saturday, the Habs fell 4-3 in a shootout to the Ottawa Senators, despite coming back from a 2-0 deficit to take the lead in the third. Jeff Petry scored two goals and Al Montoya made 35 saves in the loss.

The American netminder will be back in goal for the Habs while Carey Price continues to recover from the flu.

Like Montoya, Alexander Radulov, Andrew Shaw, Artturi Lehkonen, Shea Weber and Mikhail Sergachev will all be playing a first regular season game in their new Habs uniforms at the Bell Centre.

After sitting out Saturday's game in Ottawa, Sergachev will be back in the lineup alongside Alexei Emelin, in place of Greg Pateryn.

The visitors meanwhile, are coming off a 4-3 overtime loss to the Colorado Avalanche on Monday in Pittsburgh. Matt Cullken (1G-1A) picked up two points in the loss.

The Penguins have not yet named Tuesday's starting goaltender, but former Hab Mike Condon may get the nod. The 26-year-old was picked up off waivers by the Pens a week ago, after playing 55 games with Montreal in 2015-16.

Thanks Clues, did you carve them yourself? ;)

 

Daniel Carr will be the healthy scratch against the Penguins while Brian Flynn makes his season debut. Joining Carr as the healthy scratches will be defencemen Zach Redmond and Greg Pateryn.
 

Here’s how the lines and defence pairings are expected to look for the Canadiens:

Max Pacioretty – Alex Galchenyuk – Brendan Gallagher
Artturi Lehkonen – Tomas Plekanec – Alexander Radulov
Paul Byron – David Desharnais – Andrew Shaw
Phillip Danault – Torrey Mitchell – Brian Flynn

Nathan Beaulieu – Shea Weber
Andrei Markov – Jeff Petry
Alexei Emelin – Mikhail Sergachev

Carr a healthy scratch.

 

“When you have to bring someone in, obviously you got to take someone out,” Therrien said. “Regarding Carrsy, we think offensively he could bring a bit more. He didn’t have any scoring chances the first two games. He’s a young man who’s trying to establish himself in the NHL. That’s part of the process.”

I'm sure Carr will get it going sitting in the pressbox. Maybe Patches should be joining him.

I think our defense is almost perfect (Id rather see Pateryn play in Emelin's place although to be fair to Emelin he's played about 4 1/2 really good periods so far in the 2 games).

 

Up front Id make some changes. Id like to see:

Lehkonen - Galchenyuk - Radulov

Pacioretty - Plekanec - Gallagher 

DD- McCarron - Shaw 

Danault - Mitchell - Carr
