IT'S THAT TIME AGAIN!!!

GAMEDAY

TONIGHT OUR HABS TAKE ON THE WINGS AT THE BELL CENTER

PUCK DROP AT 7.00 est. 

The Montreal Canadiens are looking like they have a brand new identity, and are currently riding a season-high four-game winning streak. They will look to go for five when they face off against the same Detroit Red Wings team that they beat 6-3 on Thursday when the two travel for a play date Saturday night at the Bell Centre.

Playing the game without number-one centre Jonathan Drouin (lower body) and number-one defenceman Shea Weber (lower body), the Canadiens were a little nervous heading into Thursday's game. They called up forward Daniel Carr from the Laval Rocket, and he immediately made an impact, assisting on Gallagher's first of the night.

Saturday's rematch will be the second of four games between these Original Six teams this season. They won’t face off again until late March and early April.

With Montreal now in a playoff position for the first time since opening night, they look to continue their streak, and mow down anything and anyone that comes their way.

 

HERE'S WHAT WE KNOW:

Weber may or may not play, and JD may or may not play. 

 morning skate:
Pacioretty - Danault - Shaw
Hudon - Plekanec - Gallagher
Galchenyuk - De La Rose - Byron
Deslauriers - Froese/Drouin - Carr

Benn - Weber
Alzner - Petry
Mete - Schlemko
Jerabek -  Somebody

Price starting
Niemi

Joe Morrow will be a healthy scratch tonight. 

Coach Julien said Jonathan Drouin is questionable. No sure bet either way on that one, but given he alternated on fourth line at morning skate, chances lean towards him not playing.

“Weber is a game-time decision,” coach Claude Julien said after the morning skate. “He skated this morning, he’s feeling pretty good. Once he visits the medical staff tonight before the game we’ll know more. Drouin is questionable. Not necessarily out, but questionable right now.”
