Halak to face Oilers

PREGAME AUDIO: Jacques Martin I and II | Benoit Pouliot | Jaroslav Spacek | Hal Gill

Jaroslav Halak will be going for his fourth cosecutive victory tonight when he faces the Edmonton Oilers but Canadiens coach Jacques Martin is reluctant to make any longterm commitment to the goalie, saying: “I’m not looking that far ahead. We’re just taking it one game at a time.”

The Canadiens will stick with their same lineup tonight which defenceman Paul Mara is a healthy scratch and Maxim Lapierre is serving the final game of a four-game suspension.

Michael Cammalleri and Marc-André Bergeron skated before the practice but neither is close to returning to the lineup.
