Murray, Moen in Canadiens lineup for Game 3

MONTREAL -- Defenseman Douglas Murray and forward Travis Moen are in the Montreal Canadiens lineup Tuesday for Game 3 of their Eastern Conference Second Round series against the Boston Bruins.

The Bruins made no changes to their lineup from Game 2, a 5-3 victory at home that tied the best-of-7 series 1-1.

Murray is making his Stanley Cup Playoffs debut with the Canadiens after being scratched for Montreal’s first six playoff games. He is playing in his 73rd playoff game.

Moen returned to the lineup after playing in Game 1 but sitting out Game 2. Moen missed a month due to a concussion sustained against the Bruins on March 24 and made his return in Game 1 of the series, playing 13:07 in Montreal’s 4-3 double-overtime victory.

The Canadiens scratched forward Brandon Prust and defenseman Francis Bouillon. Prust played 7:29 and Bouillon played 9:18 in the Game 2 loss.

Prust’s spot on Montreal’s second line with Tomas Plekanec was filled by Michael Bournival, who finished Game 2 playing there. Moen plays on the fourth line with Daniel Briere and Dale Weise.

Murray took Bouillon’s spot on the third defense pairing with Mike Weaver.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
