The Montreal Canadiens host the New York Rangers on Saturday at the Bell Centre and look to snap their three game losing streak.
In hopes of giving the team a spark, head coach Claude Julien has decided to mix things up a bit.
Julien has freshened up his bottom nine a bit, looks like he'll scratch a defenseman and has remixed his power play units.
Joel Armia has been reunited with country mate Jesperi Kotkaniemi on the team's third line where he'll also join Charles Hudon. Kotkaniemi has been looking better however needed somebody to finish his passes on Wednesday and Arttui Lehkonen couldn't bury the puck, something Julien is hoping Armia can do.
Lehkonen on the other hand finds himself with the red hot Nick Suzuki and struggling Max Domi. While Suzuki has looked absolutely great, Domi has been really struggling to get things going lately.
On the defensive side of things it looks like Brett Kulak will be a healthy scratch on Saturday while Mike Reilly will jump back into the lineup.
Julien also freshened up his power play units as follows:
Hudon - Gallagher - Suzuki
Tatar - Danault - Gallagher
Domi - Suzuki - Lehkonen
Hudon - Kotkaniemi - Armia
Cousins - Thompson - Weal
Chiarot - Weber
Mete - Petry
Reilly - Fleury
