Montoya's only start in the Jets' past 11 games was a 35-save effort in a 3-1 victory on the road against the Chicago Blackhawks.
Carey Price will start in goal for a second straight day for the Canadiens, who will complete their traditional set of matinees on Super Bowl weekend after a 2-1 overtime loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday.
Michael Bournival missed the game Saturday with a virus but will return against the Jets. George Parros will be scratched for the Canadiens, leaving rookie Christian Thomas to take his spot on the fourth line after playing 8:16 in his Canadiens debut on Saturday.
