The Montreal Canadiens will look to bounce back from blowing a 3-1 lead last night. 

Canadiens head coach Michel Therrien announced that Al Montoya will get the start in between the pipes against his former team the Florida Panthers and Montoya will be looking for his first since October 26th when he beat his other former team the New York Islanders. 

Defenseman Jeff Petry will be playing in his 400th career game in the NHL, while the Canadiens franchise will be playing their 6,600th game in franchise history. 

With just one point, forward Tomas Plekanec will surpass Peter Mahovlich for 17th for most points in Canadiens history. 

Ryan Johnston and Sven Andrighetto might draw into the lineup tonight but will be gametime decisions, all indictions lean towards Therrien keeping the same lineup as last night. 

The Panthers will be without forward Alexander Barkov who went down to injury last night against the Toronto Maple Leafs. 

What do you think of Therrien's choice of lineup against the Panthers?
