Andreas Engqvist, who stuck with the big team for a while after training camp, has been recalled from Hamilton.
Petteri Nokelainen and Travis Moen are injured and out of the lineup for the Canadiens’ game against mighty Detroit at the Bell Centre Wednesday night.

And don’t look now, but there are four teams tied at 45 points in the Eastern Conference standings.
