The Canadiens held an optional practice Tuesday morning in Brossard as they prepared to face the New Jersey Devils Tuesday night at the Bell Centre.
Tomas Plekanec, Brian Gionta, David Desharnais, Max Pacioretty and P.K. Subban opted out of the practice.
There will be no changes to the Canadiens’ lineup from Saturday’s 2-1 overtime victory over the Chicago Blackhawks, which means that Francis Bouillon will be a healthy scratch again.
Carey Price will start in goal for the Canadiens and Martin Brodeur will be in goal for the Devils.
Here’s how the Habs’ lines and defence pairings are expected to look against the Devils:
