The Canadiens are back at home on Tuesday, hosting the visiting Florida Panthers at the Bell Centre.

On Sunday in Chicago, the Habs lost in regulation for just the second time this season, dropping a 3-2 decision to the Blackhawks. Shea Weber and Andrei Markov were the Habs goalscorers, while Al Montoya made 32 saves in the loss.

Carey Price should be back in goal in Montreal, boasting a 9-4-2 career record against the Panthers.

Head coach Michel Therrien however, has not confirmed any other lineup changes.

At the other end of the ice, the Panthers arrive in La Belle Province on the first stop of a four-game road trip which will also see the team travel to Toronto, Ottawa, and New York.

The Cats are coming off a 3-2 overtime win against the New York Islanders. Jonathan Marchessault scored the equalizer with 0:14 to go in the third before Denis Malgin won it in the extra frame.

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