Just a few hours before the Montreal Canadiens' game against the formidable New York Rangers, head coach Martin St-Louis has just confirmed some changes to his lineup.

The head coach announced that young forward Emil Heineman will finally be in the starting lineup. At the same time, it was also learned that Johnathan Kovacevic will be the one to give up his spot in the roster.


This means that the coach will use a lineup with 12 forwards and 6 defensemen for the first time in three games.


It is worth noting that Samuel Montembeault will have the daunting task of defending the Canadiens' goal.
