After a week of rest for the players but none for the GM, there are now a few new faces in the Canadiens organization: a center brought in for hire and a top notch prospect who will be a vital part of the core. for the coming years. With the pandemic, we won’t be able to see them in action for a few days, but there will still be debuts in tonight’s game.

On hold since the start of the season, Michael Frolik is called upon tonight to help the Canadiens reach 12 forwards (apparently quite a complex process). It will be his first game with the team after dressing in just two games in the AHL. He’s on the fourth row with Jake Evans and Corey Perry tonight, playing against the other depth piece Montreal brought in days before the start of the season, and he’s hoping he can have a similar impact.

Still hanging on to their fourth place finish eight days ago, the Canadiens will face Mikko Koskinen in the Oilers net after Mike Smith played last night in Toronto. Since losing the starter role, Koskinen’s game has been stronger in March. Montreal’s goal will be to make him look more like the surpassed goalkeeper he was during the first two months of the year, having to do so in committee with several regulars absent from the training.
