The Canadiens picked up another point last night, bringing their streak to three after not even having had any consecutive positive results until this week. There were tough opponents in that streak, including an improving Los Angeles Kings team, a very good Calgary Flames team and a full blast Detroit Red Wings team. It would have been better to turn one of those overtime losses into a win, especially last night against a divisional rival they are chasing, but things are starting to look better for the team.

One of the developments was the introduction of Ryan Poehling and Michael Pezzetta into the lineup. They combined to create the first goal of the game on Saturday night and offered Dominique Ducharme a quality fourth line capable of taking penalties, playing in the attacking zone and even contributing offensively. The coach decided to separate them tonight, but Mike Hoffman is injured.

Right now, all units are shooting except the one led by Christian Dvorak, and the implementation of the team’s new acquisition must be the top priority of the coaching staff. He really misses playing with Jonathan Drouin (who returned to skating this morning), but he has a lot more to offer than we’ve seen so far. Poehling will switch to his line tonight, playing against Brendan Gallagher. That he is positively involved tonight could be one of the deciding factors in how many points the Canadiens take in Boston.

Adam Brooks will take Poehling’s place on the fourth line, and this unit will at least try to maintain an even shot and goal differential in the game.

Perhaps the most important factor is the goal, where we will see Samuel Montembeault take the start. He got off to a rough start last night when he jumped into action on Jake Allen’s exit, so hopefully this time around he feels better prepared. He will have to be when he faces Patrice Bergeron’s line with clashes in favor of the Bruins.
