Canadiens’ captain Brian Gionta and Max Pacioretty, who have been day to day with upper body injuries, will be game-time decisions for Sunday’s matchup against the Ottawa Senators.
The teams are tied 1-1 in their best-of-seven playoff series. Game 3 starts at 7 p.m. (CBC, RDS, TSN-690 Radio)
Gionta skated with the team Sunday morning at Scotiabank Place in Kanata. Pacioretty was not on the ice. Coach Michel Therrien said Rene Bourque is ready to play. Bourque collided with teammate Colby Armstrong during Friday’s game in Montreal.
Therrien wants the Canadiens’ to keep doing what they did in the first two games of the series.
“I liked our intensity. I liked our execution. So for us tonight, we have to continue building on the last two performances,” Therrien said.
