MONTREAL -- Following a five-day break, the Canadiens and new head coach Claude Julien will be back in action against the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday afternoon.

Julien returns behind the Habs bench for the first time since 2006, after being appointed head coach on Tuesday.

The Canadiens will be looking to snap a two-game losing streak, and are coming off a 4-0 loss in Boston last Sunday.

Julien for his part, made a couple of line changes on Friday, notably putting Alex Galchenyuk at center between Max Pacioretty and Alexander Radulov. Paul Byron and Brendan Gallagher also formed a new line with Tomas Plekanec.

Carey Price will get the start in goal against a Winnipeg team which most recently lost 4-3 against Pittsburgh on Thursday. The Jets are 4-5-1 in their last 10 outings.

Saturday's game will be the final meeting between the two Canadian rivals this season. On January 11, the Habs defeated the Jets 7-4 at the MTS Center in Winnipeg.
