The Montreal Canadiens are in Philadelphia tonight to play the Flyers in a very interesting matchup.
Philly is coached by former Canadiens' head coach Alain Vigneault and also features Michel Therrien as an assistant coach.
It's a big game in the standings as well as the Canadiens and Flyers are currently fighting for a Wild Card spot.
After practicing in full yesterday, there was some chatter that Jesperi Kotkaniemi could make a return to the lineup tonight as the team announced KK would be travelling to Philadelphia.
Unfortunately for the team though, head coach Claude Julien announced this morning that Kotkaniemi isn't healthy enough to play tonight.
Julien added that he's hoping Kotkaniemi will be ready to go for Saturday.
Kotkaniemi remains on IR, Julien says perhaps he’ll return Saturday vs. LA https://t.co/HHBIVPHAk1
