Projected lineups for Panthers, Canadiens

MONTREAL -- Here are the projected lineups the Florida Panthers and Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday night at Bell Centre.


Tomas Fleischmann - Stephen Weiss - Scottie Upshall

Jonathan Huberdeau - Peter Mueller - Alex Kovalev

Tomas Kopecky - Shawn Matthias - Mike Santorelli

Jack Skille - Jerred Smithson - George Parros

Brian Campbell - Filip Kuba

Ed Jovanovski - Keaton Ellerby

Dmitry Kulikov - Mike Weaver

Scott Clemmensen

Jose Theodore

Injured: Kris Versteeg, Sean Bergenheim, Marcel Goc, Erik Gudbranson

Scratches: Michael Caruso, Tyson Strachan

The Panthers called up Drew Shore after placing Kris Versteeg on injured reserve with a groin injury. It is unclear who Shore would replace in the lineup, seeing as the Panthers held an optional skate Tuesday morning following their 4-0 loss in Ottawa a night earlier, and coach Kevin Dineen did not speak to the media after practice. These are the lines the Panthers used in the game against the Senators.


Max Pacioretty - David Desharnais - Erik Cole

Rene Bourque - Tomas Plekanec - Brian Gionta

Brendan Gallagher - Alex Galchenyuk - Brandon Prust

Colby Armstrong - Ryan White - Travis Moen

Andrei Markov - Alexei Emelin

Josh Gorges - Raphael Diaz

Tomas Kaberle - Francis Bouillon

Carey Price

Peter Budaj

Scratched: Lars Eller, Mike Blunden, Yannick Weber

Injured: Petteri Nokelainen

One game after Alex Galchenyuk made his NHL debut in the Habs' opener Saturday, it will be the turn of Brendan Gallagher in Tuesday's game. He will be taking the lineup spot of center Lars Eller, with Galchenyuk sliding to center after playing left wing Saturday. Coach Michel Therrien said he didn’t like Eller's intensity in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Maple Leafs.

He's been one of our top players all year. Tonight he was by far our best player. There wasn't anybody in the same universe as him.
