The Canadiens enjoyed a day off Sunday to rest up for what will be a very busy week with four games in six nights.
The New Jersey Devils will be at the Bell Centre Monday (7:30 p.m., TSN-HABS, RDS, TSN Radio 690) and then the Canadiens will be in New Jersey Wednesday. Boston then visits the Bell Centre on Thursday, followed by the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday.
The Canadiens, coming off a 4-2 win over Toronto on Saturday, have a 7-1-2 record in their last 10 games. That’s the best record in the Eastern Conference over that span and Montreal hasn’t allowed more than two goals in any of those games.
“We are managing the puck well, spending a lot of time in the offensive zone and playing solid defensively,” Canadiens coach Michel Therrien said after Saturday’s win.
At Monday’s morning skate, Michael Bournival was skating on the fourth line with Brandon Prust and Travis Moen, meaning George Parros looks to be a healthy scratch against the Devils along with Ryan White. On defence, Douglas Murray is expected to play with Francis Bouillon a healthy scratch.
