BOS (6-5-0) @ MTL (10-1-1)

The Canadiens host the Boston Bruins on Tuesday night at the Bell Centre.

It's a second meeting between the two teams this season; the Canadiens won the first 4-2 in Boston on October 22, thanks to a shorthanded goal from Paul Byron in the final frame.

Artturi Lehkonen won't be in uniform on Tuesday, nor for the rest of the week, having been placed on the injured reserve list on Monday. The 21-year-old left Saturday's game with an upper body injury.

Daniel Carr should be back in the lineup in place of the Finnish forward.

Max Pacioretty meanwhile should also be in uniform after taking a treatment day at practice to start the week.

Carey Price is likely to get the start in goal, and remains perfect this season with a 7-0-0 record.

At the other end of the ice, the Habs will face a Bruins team which arrived in Montreal early Tuesday morning, coming off a 4-0 win against the Buffalo Sabres on Monday.

With his eighth goal of the season against the Sabres, David Pastrnak joined Artem Anisimov, Patrick Laine and Sidney Crosby among the league's top goalscorers.

Tuukka Rask made 32 saves for his second shutout of the season, and 32nd of his career.

Game time is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. and will be broadcast on SN and RDS.
