The Canadiens’ morning skate was an optional and the most high-profile players to take advantage of the ice were goaltenders Carey Price (he starts tonight) and Jaroslav Halak. Second-liners Max Pacioretty and Andrei Kostitsyn were on hand and the only defencemen among the dozen attendees were Hal Gill and Yannick Weber.
Coach Jacques Martin confirmed that Price will start. He said he was contemplating some other changes but would wait until game time. The best bet is that Matt D’Agostini may be back in the lineup after two games as a healthy scratch.
