Christopher Higgins was at left wing on the line with Saku Koivu and Alex Tanguay when the Canadiens practiced in Verdun this morning. Higgins and Koivu were reunited for the third period of last Saturday’s game on Long Island and Higgins scored the tying goal en route to a 5-4 win. The line is expected to stay intact for games Friday in Columbus and Satuday in Toronto.
That means Guillaume Latendresse will play with Robert Lang and Sergei Kostitsyn. Latendresse had a quick start while Higgins was out with a groin injury but has only one assist in his last five games.
