Ill Kovalev doubtful, Stewart called up

Alex Kovalev will be a game-time decision for tonight’s contest against the Nashville Predators, Kovy having returned home from the Bell Centre feeling under the weather. He didn’t practice yesterday. The Canadiens have called up forward Gregory Stewart from Hamilton in case Kovalev isn’t fit to play.

Stewart would play on a line with Kyle Chipchura and Steve B├ęgin, and Matt D’Agostini would take Kovalev’s place with Tomas Plekanec and Max Pacioretty.
