The Canadiens play host to the New Jersey Devils Monday night, by which time the training camp roster should be down to something approximating the lineup we’ll see opening night.
No cuts announed Saturday night, though.
The takeaway is two players who will be hard to cut: Bournival and Jarred Tinordi.
