Boston Bruins Notes:
Bruins are battling some illness as they head to Montreal. Boston is coming off a disappointing 5-1 loss to St Louis at home and is currently in second place in the Atlantic Division.

Montreal Canadiens Notes:
After losing 3-2 to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night, the Habs bounced back with a 3-0 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday. Montreal scored three goals in the game’s first six minutes, with Brendan Gallagher, Juraj Slafkovsky, and Joshua Roy lighting the lamp. In goal, Cayden Primeau earned his second career shutout with a 41-save performance that earned him the game’s first star.

Boston Bruins:
Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak lead the way with six points apiece against the Canadiens this season, while Charlie Coyle and James van Riemsdyk are right behind them with four each.
