After hours of rumors and doubts, we have a better idea about what the Montreal Canadiens' lineup will look like tonight, as the team faces the Carolina Hurricanes. Head coach Claude Julien said it was impossible to confirm who will be on the ice tonight before the warmup.
As we can see on this projected lineup, Charles Hudon will play at the center tonight:
Pacioretty - Drouin - Gallagher
Galchenyuk - Danault - Shaw
Byron - Plekanec - Lehkonen
Deslauriers - Hudon - Carr
At the blue line, Schlemko's absence is a great opportunity for Jerabek to re-enter the lineup:
Alzner - Petry
Morrow - Benn
Jerabek - Lernout
As we already knew, Carey Price will be in front of the net, once again.
Julien mentioned during the pregame press conference that Nicolas Deslauriers could play a few shifts at the blue line if necessary. Deslauriers played as a defenseman until 2014. Let's hope
