Is veteran Gill about to be a healthy scratch?


A sheet so clean, you could swear it was a Canadiens power play.

The Canadiens practised this morning in Brossard before setting off to Pittsburgh. The Penguins await Friday, and then it’s on to Toronto to face the Maple Leafs on Saturday.

Head coach Randy Cunneyworth hinted during his news briefing that there might be lineup changes coming for the back-to-back games.

Cunneyworth is not yet decided on his goaltenders. And he said that it’s possible that Chris Campoli will be reinserted into the lineup after having been a healthy scratch the past two games.

Don’t be surprised if such a move would put veteran Hal Gill, who played a season-low 8:55 Wednesday night; that might be a little misleading, given the amount of power-play time the Habs “enjoyed,” but there’s a decent chance Gill will watch from the press box in Pittsburgh.
