With the injuries to Craig Rivet and Mathieu Dandenault, Mark Streit will get his chance to play.
Streit appeared to finally get up to speed with the NHL game and was showing promise in the pre-season.
Rivet may be healthy enough to start but Dandenault’s injury appears more serious. With Francis Bouillon and JP Cote still sidelined with their own injuries the Canadiens depth may get tested.
Patrick Traverse or Dan Jancevski may get the call if Rivet can’t start.
Something to consider, Rivet is the Canadiens ironman having only missed 2 starts in over 400 games. Chances are he’ll suit up.
