Montreal Canadiens face the Tampa Bay Lightning tonight at 7pm. Carey Price will be in nets for the Habs, he’s currently 30-21-6 with 7 shutouts , .922SV% and a 2.34GAA so far this season.

One change will be made to tonight’s line-up; Alexandre Picard will be a healthy scratch and will be replaced by Yannick Weber.

Jaroslav Spacek underwent arthroscopic surgery yesterday in Alabama. It was the same Doctor James Andrews who operated on the knees of Andrei Markov and Josh Gorges. Good news the surgery was a success and found that Spacek’s injury is less severe then initially diagnosed, he will need to take 4-5 weeks to recover.

Paul Mara and Ryan White will be healthy scratches for a second straight game.

Michael Cammalleri – Tomas Plekanec – Jeff Halpern
Max Pacioretty – Scott Gomez – Brian Gionta
Andrei Kostitsyn – Lars Eller – Travis Moen
