Game 40: Bruins at Canadiens

MONTREAL — Good morning from the Bell Centre, where the Bruins will play the Canadiens tonight. This is the first stop of a two-game road trip which concludes in Pittsburgh on Monday.

Nathan Horton is questionable because of discomfort in an unspecified area. If Horton dresses, he will play on the third line with Blake Wheeler and David Krejci. If Horton is unavailable, Daniel Paille would play, most likely on the fourth line. Brad Marchand would probably move up in the lineup.

Puck drop: 7 p.m.

Record: Bruins 21-12-6, Canadiens 22-16-3

TV/radio info: NESN (Jack Edwards, Andy Brickley, Naoko Funayama), 98.5 The Sports Hub (Dave Goucher, Bob Beers)


Projected lineup,(pending Horton’s availability):

Milan Lucic-Marc Savard-Michael Ryder
Mark Recchi-Tyler Seguin-Patrice Bergeron
Blake Wheeler-David Krejci-Nathan Horton
Brad Marchand-Gregory Campbell-Shawn Thornton

Zdeno Chara-Johnny Boychuk
Dennis Seidenberg-Steven Kampfer
Andrew Ference-Adam McQuaid

Healthy scratches: Daniel Paille

Storylines: During the last meeting, David Krejci and Michael Cammalleri went toe-to-toe. It was the first NHL fight for both skilled forwards. Krejci opened up a cut on Cammalleri’s forehead… Josh Gorges is out for the season. The defenseman will require knee surgery next week… This will be the Bruins’ first look at James Wisniewski as a Canadien… Stephane Auger and Kevin Pollock will be the referees. Pierre Champoux and Steve Barton will be the linesmen.
