BREAKING: Martin St. Louis Makes a Last-Minute Lineup Change

Published January 17, 2024 at 5:49 PM

After a blazing start to the season, it's fair to say that things have changed considerably in recent weeks for Justin Barron.

Martin St-Louis even decided to leave his young defenseman out of the lineup for the last two games to give him time to find his best level by watching the games from the press box.

Although his offensive play remains a very interesting aspect for the Canadiens, his defensive shortcomings regularly cause headaches for his coaches.

Sometimes a shock treatment is needed to wake up a player, and Barron will finally have the opportunity to show that his time in purgatory in the stands will have positive repercussions. He is officially rejoining the lineup tonight, in New Jersey.

It's Johnathan Kovacevic who will give up his spot in the defensive brigade to make room for Barron.
