The Canadiens will be looking to end a two-game losing streak when they visit the New York Islanders Saturday night (7 p.m., CBC, RDS, TSN Radio 690).
The Islanders would appear to be a good team to break a slump against since they are 1-7-2 in their last 10 games, while the Canadiens are 7-2-1 during that span.
The Canadiens held an optional skate Saturday morning and coach Michel Therrien said he hadn’t decided if he would make any lineup changes from Thursday’s game in Philadelphia. Carey Price will definitely start in goal against the Islanders.
After Saturday’s game, the Canadiens return home to face the Florida Panthers Sunday at the Bell Centre (6 p.m., TSN-HABS, RDS, TSN Radio 690).
Here’s how the lines looked at Friday’s practice:
Gionta – Plekanec – Galchenyuk
Pacioretty – Desharnais – Briere
Gallagher – Eller – Bournival
Parros – Prust – Moen
Subban – Markov
Murray – Diaz
Emelin – Gorges
