Bourque, Murray back in Habs lineup against Leafs

The Canadiens held an optional skate Saturday morning in Toronto before facing the Maple Leafs (7 p.m., CBC, RDS, TSN Radio 690).

After the skate Canadiens coach Michel Therrien announced that forward Rene Bourque and defenceman Douglas Murray will be in the lineup against the Leafs, with Ryan White, Jarred Tinordi and George Parros being healthy scratches. Carey Price will start in goal.

James Reimer will start in goal for the Leafs and it looks like centre Dave Bolland, who has been sidelined since November with an ankle injury, could play.

Here’s how the Canadiens lineup is expected to look against the Leafs:

Pacioretty-Desharnais-Vanek
Brière-Plekanec-Gallagher
Bourque-Galchenyuk-Gionta
Moen-Eller-Weise

Bouillon-Subban
Markov-Emelin
Murray-Weaver

    About time! But how long before they give it back. The Leafs have had a few posts, they’re due.
