1. The Canadiens will be playing their second game in as many nights in Florida. They'll be trying to put Saturday night's 5-4 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning behind them. Claude Julien's squad held a 2-0 advantage, but surrendered three goals to the Lightning in the second period alone in a disappointing frame. In his first game back since sustaining a concussion, Jesperi Kotkaniemi scored his fourth goal of the season. Max Domi, Ben Chiarot and Jordan Weal also scored for Montreal. For his part, goaltender Carey Price turned aside 25 of 30 shots against.

2. With his goal versus Tampa Bay, Domi extended his scoring streak to four straight games. The 24-year-old forward also reached double digits in that department for the third time in his career. Chiarot also tied his career high as well. The 6-foot-3 and 225-pound defenseman lit the lamp for the fifth time this season. That matched the mark he set last year with the Winnipeg Jets. Phillip Danault collected an assist on Chiarot's goal to reach the 30-point plateau for the third time in his career.

3. The Canadiens won't be holding a morning skate on Sunday in Sunrise. Julien will be meeting the media at 4:45 p.m. at the BB&T Center, which is when we expect to learn if he'll be making any lineup changes.

4. The Panthers were also in action on Saturday night. Joel Quenneville's contingent overcame a 3-1 deficit to best the Detroit Red Wings 5-4. Winger Mike Hoffman led the Panthers with a goal and two assists. Goaltender Chris Driedger started for Florida and made 35 saves. Jonathan Huberdeau leads the Panthers with 49 points (14g, 35a) on the year. Captain Aleksander Barkov ranks second with 42 points (11g, 31a). Winger Brett Connolly leads the club with 15 goals.

5. Puck drop is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. You can watch the game on Rogers Sportsnet and RDS, and listen to all the action on TSN Radio 690 and 98,5 fm. The Canadiens will remain in the Sunshine State overnight before flying to North Carolina on Monday. They'll battle the Hurricanes on Tuesday night at PNC Arena in Raleigh.

Both the Panthers and Canadiens played very tough fought games last night. The Panthers came out on top of a 5-4 game vs Detroit while the Habs were on the losing end of a game that finished with the same 5-4 score. Hopefully the Habs come out with something to prove and get the win. Expect to see Price vs Bobrovski tonight but with the number of questionable roster moves over the last 2 years by CJ anything is possible.

So... Is Carey just going to play every game for the rest of the year?

CJ has been known to ride his starter, so I wouldn't rule it out. I think we'll see Primeau get a call up when the schedule get's heavy to play a game or 2.
