TODAY, OUR HABS ARE BACK AFTER A LENGTHY BREAK. 

THE NEW JERSEY DEVIL ARE IN TOWN FOR AN AFTERNOON TILT THAT STARTS A 2 PM EST.

HERE'S HOPING THAT THE HABS DIDN'T GET TOO MUCH SUN AND ACCUMULATE RUST.

The next eight days might be the most important stretch of the season for the Canadiens as they take up residence at the Bell Centre for five games.

The Devils are 3-7 in their last 10 games and have seven regulars, including 2018 Hart Trophy winner Taylor Hall, on the injured-reserve list.

The wild card in this matchup might be the schedule. The Canadiens haven’t played since Jan. 23, while the Devils are playing their third game since the all-star break. The Canadiens should be well-rested, but there’s also the danger of being rusty.

 

Antti Niemi will be in goal for the Canadiens as Carey Price serves a one-game suspension because he skipped the All-Star Game.

 Look for rookie Mackenzie Blackwood (AKA, Mr. Vezina),  to get the start in this game. The 22-year-old has a 5-4 record, a 2.42 GAA and has posted two shutouts.

 

 

Lines at practice yesterday:

JD, Dano, Gally

Tuna, Domi, Leks.

Hudon, KK, Armia

Agostino, Chaput, Dlo.

Kulak, Benn.

 

1st PP unit:

Hudon, Domi, Gally
