It's been a mixed day of news for the Montreal Canadiens and their fans today. 

We learned early that Brendan Gallagher would be jumping back into the lineup tonight beside Tomas Tatar and Phillip Danault. 

Then everybody was hit with some bad news as the team announced Ben Chiarot was dealing with a lower body injury and would be out. 

A tough blow considering Chiarot and Shea Weber have combined to be a strong defensive pairing that would be needed against Connor McDavid tonight. 

So head coach Claude Julien was forced to make some lineup changes. 

Here's a look at tonight's full projected lineup along with Carey Price, tonight's starting goalie. 

Tatar-Danault-Gallagher
Kovalchuk-Domi-Suzuki
Lehkonen-Kotkaniemi-Cousins
Poehling-Thompson-Weal

Scandella-Weber

Kulak-Petry
Mete-Fleury

Price
