MONTREAL - The 2019-20 NHL season is on pause, but there's still plenty of hockey to watch.

The Canadiens have shifted their regular season schedule to the digital world, livestreaming CPU vs CPU simulations of the team's match ups at their previously-scheduled times.

The first outing, a 4:00 p.m. EST puck drop in Anaheim on Sunday, resulted in a 3-1 Habs win over the Ducks. Turns out Carey Price is dominant even in the virtual world, earning first-star status thanks to a 44-save performance.

To mix things up for Tuesday's tilt against the Kings, fans on Twitter had a chance to play eCoach and pick the Canadiens lineup.

The fan-voted line of Jonathan Drouin, Max Domi, and Brendan Gallagher was buzzing all night, helping lead the Canadiens to a 6-2 win at the eStaples Center.

The Habs once again turned to Twitter for help heading into Thursday's game against San Jose, this time with more sartorial matters in mind. The fans have spoken and the Canadiens and Sharks will each be sporting their 2006-07 second home jerseys for the tilt - one that will hopefully result in a first Habs "win" at the Shark Tank since 1999.

Tweet from @CanadiensMTL: Nous tentons quelque chose de nouveau pour le match simul�� @easportsnhl de demain au Shark Tank. Aidez-nous �� choisir notre chandail pour l'occasion.We need your help! We're looking to change things up at the Shark Tank for tomorrow's NHL 20 sim. Pick our jerseys for the game.

The virtual puck drops at 10:30 p.m. EST on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and Twitch.
