Montreal Canadiens head coach, Martin St-Louis, confirmed a major change in his lineup for the upcoming game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Due to the rivalry between the two teams, the Canadiens' coach decided to bring Michael Pezzetta back into the lineup. Finnish forward Jesse Ylonen will have to sit out, as he will be removed from the Montreal lineup.
"Michael Pezzetta will replace Jesse Ylönen in the lineup on Saturday." - Montreal Canadiens

Now that the goaltender trio situation has officially concluded, Quebec's Samuel Montembeault is expected to see more playtime. He will be starting against the Leafs tonight, marking his 31st game this season.
The 27-year-old goalie has amassed a respectable record of 13 wins, 11 losses, and 5 overtime losses this season, with a goals-against average of 3.14 and a save percentage of .905.
It's worth noting that this will be the first matchup between the Canadiens and the Maple Leafs since the season opener on October 11th. We can anticipate a highly intense game between the two rival teams, and possibly even a second fight between enforcer Ryan Reaves and Arber Xhekaj.
Here is the lineup expected to face Sheldon Keefe's men tonight:
