The Montreal Canadiens got a nice boost to their lineup last night as Tomas Tatar was able to return after missing a game with the flu.
Montreal is still waiting on two other top forwards, Andrew Shaw and Paul Byron, to return.
Well, according to Canadiens head coach Claude Julien one of the two could be back Saturday.
While he wouldn't commit to it 100%, Julien said he wouldn't rule out Shaw returning Saturday against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Shaw has been cleared for contact at practice for a little while now, however he hasn't been given clearance by doctors to play in a game.
This would be a huge boost for the Canadiens as they're currently one of the hottest teams in the NHL with a 8-1-1 record in their last 10 games.
Claude Julien didn’t rule out Andrew Shaw facing the Leafs on Saturday. Still waiting for clearance from medical staff. He’s skating again today.
