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

They said, 'You're going to love the city. It's smaller than Philadelphia, but you're going to love it. You're going to love the fans. Just watching the playoffs last year, the fans seemed louder there than they did anywhere. I'm really excited about that.
